Paletton Color Scheme Designer

January 26, 2015

From the ColorSchemeDesigner blog:

When designing web pages, computer applications, or house interiors, we need to find good color scheme — a set of colors producing the best impression. For every tint there are colors which it can coexist with, and which it can’t. Some combinations are uncomfortable, or disturbing, while others are more pleasant.

Experienced designers choose colors intuitively, many people can smell what colors go together well and what don’t. However, finding the good combination of colors may be sometimes long and grueling work. The color theory makes the work easier. This tool will find set of colors you can start with, and it may facilitate your looking for the optimal color palette.

The Color Scheme Designer application generates color schemes of several types. Every scheme is based on one (base) color, which is supplemented with additional colors making together the best visual impression — using one of the genuine algorithms.

I’m not an experienced designer who chooses colors intuitively, nor do I find the “grueling work” of selecting colors to be fun (or the best use of my 90 minutes).  The Color Scheme Designer has helped me a lot.
