When you're in the midst of your latest design, you could find that nailing the perfect colour scheme (opens in new tab) or seeking out that perfect colour proves pretty difficult. Thankfully, we've come across these two new colour tools that will help ease your colour-finding woes.
Both are based in the browser so there's no messing around with sign-up or downloads, just click the links to start them up.
First off is Pretty IP (opens in new tab), brought to you by design agency Strange (opens in new tab), which creates a unique palette of complementary colours based on the numbers in your IP (Internet Protocol) address. Once you've tried it out on your home and office computers, give it a whirl each time you're connected to a new IP address (a great excuse to try that new coffee shop) and get a burst of colour palette inspiration each time you do so.
Secondly, Color (opens in new tab) by HailPixel is a handy little web app if you're a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to getting the colour just right. Hover your mouse anywhere across the screen to nail down your chosen colour, scroll to set your saturation, and the site will give you that all-important hex code for your projects. It's one of the easiest such tools we've ever used.
