Thank you for making me look more talented, Internet

Color wheel from 1895

Color Scheme Designer 3 is my new favorite design toy. This website is a basic color wheel that creates complimentary, analogous and other color schemes. Additionally, it provides sample webpages using your set color scheme, which is where my interest lies. It’s pretty fun to spin the wheel around and see the schemes develop on the left side of the page, sort of like a kaleidoscope. 

There’s a lot of other color wheels out there on the Web, but this tool is particularly user-friendly and provides a number of convenient utilities, including adjusting for color blindness levels in the population, which is just cool. 

If I had a house, I would probably paint it using this tool, picking colors to stimulate hunger in my kitchen, productivity in my study and fear in my children’s bedrooms.
