I'm new to the community but I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Typically when someone want to display a scale of good-to-bad they show something like:
Red is bad and green is good, with yellow being somewhere in between. What I am faced with however is that all options are bad, so I cannot use green. I also have a wide range of levels of bad with the low end being somebody being rude and the upper end being murder. I was thinking about maybe using purples or blues to increase the spread, but, being completely new to any graphic design, I'm unsure. Like this:
The colors would never be displayed directly next to each other, so a perfect gradient isn't necessary. Any tips or help at all is appreciated!
