Beautiful color selection made easy

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 by Servage

Have you ever been trying to figure out how to get the colors for your web project design to match each other? Or have you ever been stuck trying to find suitable colors for a website that should match an existing logo to integrate in the corporate identity? Color selection can be easy if you know exactly what you want, but mostly you are starting from scratch, maybe with an idea or preset main color. However, how do you define proper fitting colors to go along with the main color, to both fit the intended design and be aesthetic at the same time?

Maybe you have heard of complementary colors? Being the exact opposite of any given color, the complementary color is very suitable for text links, having the main color as the link color, and the complementary color as the hover color, or vice versa. This is a simple example of a task where identifying proper colors is important for the overall quality of the design. Unfortunately that isn’t enough in most cases. Websites often use various colors, for various purposes. The common thing is that they should all fit each other in some way.

If you’re not perfectly great at choosing aesthetic colors, want some help choosing the right ones, or maybe just want some inspiration for possible color schemes to use for future projects, then have a look at Color Scheme Designer. It’s a really cool free online tool that helps you choose one or multiple fitting colors to your base color. It comes with preset options, for example to find complementary colors, but also lets you totally customize your color scheme, and preview the colors in comparison to each other.
