For anyone out there doing some design, be it a user interface, greeting card or painted master piece, the colour wheel is an invaluable tool for picking colours.
I was mucking about this morning cleaning up some rough edges in the UI design app I’m working on and stumbled across this great web based colour wheel.
I find it a great way to explore the colour spectrum looking for a list of complimentary colours.
As a bonus for the code monkeys out there that like to see there hexadecimal colours in code rounded out (ie #FFFF2255, I bet you also only ever set your stereo volume to numbers devisable by 2 or 5) it limits the pallet to only round values.
As a bonus I also stumbled across this informative article on colour theory, handy for understanding how to use the colour wheel.
