The Design Process โ€“ Help Your Clients Be Clearer

Received this from my business coach when I asked her – “How do you know what colors go with what? [in regards to working on a website design/customization] – not only is it a must to read this blog post – but the resources within it are amazing – have to share:

The Design Process โ€“ Help Your Clients Be Clearer.

For stock photos – I used istockphoto or photoxpress. They are recommending stockxpert which is now istockphoto or thinkstock.

Use http://www.colorschemer.com/ and see various color schemes here at http://www.colorschemer.com/schemes/

I use Photoshop for just about every project. You can also use a open source program called Gimp.

This resource is what really shocked me:

http://www.degraeve.com/color-palette/index.php

From the website it states:

Color Palette Generator

Enter the URL of an image to get a color palette that matches the image. This is useful for coming up with a website color palette that matches a key image a client wants to work with.

Really – how cool is that! Enjoy!! ๐Ÿ™‚
