Resources to help you design
Designing can be very time consuming. I spend a good 40 hours a week at the computer. So one of my favorite resources is http://www.colourlovers.com/ This sight is like a Facebook for designers. I love it because you get and receive feedback. The community is filled with some pretty RAD people. Above all, easy and fast to use. As well as very organized. After all, we all brave the data management of design. The company clearly understands all of the above factors.
The CEO, Darius started the site as a way to connect emotion to design. The site has evolved over the years to become one of the largest online color databases. So, when you can’t afford the Pantone pack, or adobe suite, just get online and create a profile in color lovers. I even used it to create colors for this site. All by uploading my header image and, 30 seconds later I had my colors.
Some of my favorite features are….
PHOTOCOPA is the best way to make a photo inspired color palette. Load up your own photo from anywhere on the web and add it to the gallery for others to use as inspiration or keep it private for only your use. You can also search for great photos on Flickr.
RGB, CSS, HEX …Oh My!
