Useful Color Scheme Designer

1 03 2011

Here’s a site I found VERY helpful, and it plays on what Karen Zimmerman was teaching regarding hue and design:

http://colorschemedesigner.com/

This site is specifically designed to help a person pick the colors that would complement their site, with all variations based on mono, complement, triad, tetrad, analogic, and accented analogic choices (think back to the color wheels she presented in class).

You choose the hue variation (ie, triad) and then when you find the colors you like, simply mouse over the color and you have what’s called the hex value.  On WordPress, you can usually find the colors in the “Theme Options”.  Simply input the hex value that you want.

If I ever need to develop a color scheme, this is the place I go.

I will have to say that I don’t necessarily agree with all the color variations that the site gives—which is why it’s good to have a sandbox WordPress site.
