All of my colors in Illustrator are super dull for some reason. One of my favorite colors is this bright royal blue (0303F6), but when I try to use it in Illustrator, it comes out muted and just plain sad. It does this with every other color I use, too. I'll attach some pictures below.

 

I'm fairly new to Illustrator, so I have little to no clue what I'm doing. Advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

 

Here's the color I want:

Or start with an RGB document.

Don't use a Print preset but an Art & Illustration preset to create a new document.

eturk,

 

First guess: you are in CMYK Color Mode; you can create/switch a/the document in(to) RGB Color Mode and start over.
