Recently I have begun to dabble in Graphic Design. When creating a new design, choosing a colour scheme can often be difficult. This is where comes in handy.
Although you may have colors in mind for a design it can often be difficult in fine tuning shades that compliment each other in an aesthetic manner. will generate a colour pallette your can use across your entire design. Here’s how i use Coolors.

Color Generator

From the homepage of you have the option to launch the Color Generator. You don’t require an account to use this feature, and you be provided a tutorial when you first launch the generator.
The Generator is easy to use but here’s a quick overview:
  • Hit the spacebar to generate new colors.
  • You can click on a colour to lock it in. If you alreadybhave some starting colors you can type the hex values in and lock those colors in.
  • You can also select images to pick a colour from.
  • You can export your final pallette in multiple formats such as PNG, PDF, SVG.
You can create an account to save all your previous pallettes, however I get by with an account.
There are IOS and Android applications avalibale. I don’t recommend the Android application, it is a paid application that has not been updated in 3 years. I can’t speak for the IOS application, but I find it best using the web application.
