How do I create a triadic color scheme?

Triadic Color Scheme

Three colors evenly spaced to form a triangle on your color wheel is a triadic color scheme. There are four groups to use: R-Y-B, O-R-V, RO-YG-BV and YO-BG-RV. Use these color combinations to create designs that will "vibrate." Use them with balance and simplicity for poster design.
