    Hi, I think it's a good start but, as already stated, you would have to consider the ways in which this design would be used. You mentioned that if it was used in 1-color you would get rid of the triangle....

    Building upon what ash said, some more things to consider and work on:

    Your Design

    - Get rid of that background image. It's terribly distracting, cheesy and extremely unnecessary....

    You could do it in illustrator.

    Make your design with the lines.

    Draw a rectangle around the lines and keep...

    Welcome to the web, I moved into web design from laying out textbooks in print over five years ago and craziest thing is people keep shifting me more and more towards pure development. Here's a free resource...

    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?

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!
