Have you seen the Coolors.co colour palette generator? It’s a website dedicated to creating colour palettes.
The palette generator presents you with five colours and you just keep tapping on the space bar on your keyboard changing one of the five colours displayed until you reach a combination that you like. It’s like playing a very easy game where your aim is to create tasteful rainbows. Or disgusting rainbows. It turns out that colour palettes are either beautiful or gross and both is fun, so you can’t lose basically.
When you find a colour you like, you can lock it in and then you tap away again and the generator gives you complimentary colours until you find a full palette you’re happy with. You can even adjust each shade, drag them into different places on the palette, copy the hex code and export the whole palette as a png or pdf.
Apart from just staring at all the colour variations like a design student undergoing an FBI experiment, I’ve used the site to create palettes for interior design, party decor, outfit planning, a friend’s wedding, even the design of Wonky Peach. If you get really addicted or work in design, you can create a profile to save your palettes, browse other member’s palettes and buy an app, an Adobe add on and a Chrome Extension, so that you can play the rainbow game all day long.
