There are two ways of complementary ways of doing this: scales and themes. The ggplot scales control things like colours and point size. In the latest version of ggplot2, version 3.0.0, the Viridis colour palette was introduced. This palette is particularly useful for creating colour-blind friendly palettes

g + scale_colour_viridis_d() # d for discrete

With a few lines of code, those default graphs can look a lot nicer.
