12 Best Tools for Playing Around with Color

The choice of what colors to use can be a tough one to make, whether it be choosing colors for a new logo or creating a theme for a product catalog. Companies often choose their colors in order to influence their customers in one way or another. In an article by Karen Haller, color and design specialist and blogger, the reasoning behind many fast food restaurants using the colors red and yellow is due to the fact that it causes hunger and the need to leave a restaurant as soon as possible to make room for other customers. (branding – why red & yellow is used by the fast food industry)
Muzli, a trendy site helping to inspire designers, provides a list of 12 sites used to play with colors. Our personal favorite of these is 5. BrandColors, which showcases which colors the largest brands use as for their brand architecture and color scheme.
Be mindful of the color you choose to represent your brand. We hope these tools are as helpful to you as they are to us.
