Coolors

The super fast color palettes generator!

Spectactular color combinations for all!

If you have ever been challenged to put more than one color together that look nice, you should check out Coolors.

Even as a designer I come across scenarios where it is difficult to select coordinating colors. When I do face a challenge or block Coolors has an array of helpful tools that allow you to easily explore and assemble a pleasing color palette.

Coolors is beautifully designed AND extremely useful. Every time I visit their site I seem to discover another previously overlooked intuitive feature.

If you have one color to start with, go to the Color Picker, if you have no colors and are searching for inspiration, start by Exploring Palettes. Lastly, if you have several colors but don’t feel it’s a complete palette, go to the Palette Generator.

Explore Palettes

The Palette explorer presents you with an assortment of ready-to-go palettes to choose from.

A perfect place to go when you need colors that look good together but are at a loss to pick them.

These palettes already look great and are coordinated with each other so browse until you see something you like.

Color Picker

I use the color picker as a starting point when I have a color I need and need to find others to compliment.

Start with any known color value (hex, RGB, CMYK) or plug in common color name like “Light blue.”

Scroll down the page to see an array of useful color tools. I usually go straight to the Color Harmonies section to see if any of the schemes appeal to me.

Palette Generator

This tool is a little clumsy to get into. I may be “doing it wrong.”

The generator offers excellent features for exploring nuances of colors and in-between colors on an existing palette.

I typically have to load the tool and re-enter all my own colors by HEX value. Upon writing this article I noticed the URL for this tool is the domain followed by dash-separated HEX values:

coolors.co/04080f-507dbc-a1c6ea-bbd1ea-dae3e5

We could enter the values enter the URL, though honestly I don’t think it would be much faster.
