The Color Scheme Designer
Here’s another great tool for web designers or for those who are actually thinking of redesigning their websites. I give you The Color Scheme Designer. It’s a tool that you can use to pick the right color schemes for your next layout, may it be your blog, website or social networking page.
To use the tool, just drag around the small dot on the color chart. You can choose different models for your color scheme.
The Mono or Monochromatic Model is based on a single color tint and uses only variations made by changing its saturation or brightness.
The Complementary Model is where the primary color is supplemented with its complement which is the color that can be found on the opposite of the color wheel.
The Triad or Soft Contrast Model gives you an effect where the primary color is supplemented with two colors that are placed identically on both sides of its complement.
The Tetrad or Double-Contrast Model is a scheme is made by a pair of colors and their complements. It is based on the foursome of colors evenly distributed on the color wheel (90 degrees distribution) – also known as the Tetrad.
The Analogic Model is made by the primary color and its adjacent colors found on the color wheel – two colors identically on both sides. This color scheme always looks elegant and clear which gives a warm approach.
The Accented Analogic Model. This is the Analogic model with complementary (contrast) color added.
Play around with colors by adjusting the Schemes and hues for different models. The scheme info will give you the color codes that you can use to edit your CSS files and the images used in your design. You can also view a page sample where the color scheme and model that you selected are applied. You can view a light page example or a dark page example for that matter.
Learn more about the different color schemes by using this tool and create a better looking website or something that fits your taste.
