    Does anyone know of similar sites to http://www.colourlovers.com/ ? The website is down for the next few weeks due to site upgrades.

    This site was awesome! It provdied colour palets varying anywhere from 3-7+ colours in each.

    I am stuck for some new palets and ideas. I did find some cool resources on the Pantone website.... Pantone Fall 2006 Colours


    Does anyone have a secret stash that they are willing to share?

    if you want a good book, i highly suggest "Color Index" by Krausse, it will save lives, and eyes

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

      I second this! It's a great resource.

      Also, here's a simple technique I use in Photoshop that works well for me when considering color palettes.

      Open an image that you feel has some pretty nice colors going on, and choose FILTER - 'Pixelate' - 'Crystalize'. Then choose a cell size... the smaller you go, generally, the more colors you'll have to choose from. Typically, somewhere in the middle is good.

      Hope it helps!

          If you are a designer, it is your job to come up with ideas.

          If you are not a designer, you may need to think about hiring one.

          Hi Yas and welcome to GDF.

          Not many of us will just give you ideas - coming up with ideas is part of the job. We are more likely to provide feedback on ideas you've come up with.
