If you have read my previous post probablly you remember I have mentioned about art skills of UI Developers. It is a one of reason why many collegous ask me for a help to find a nice set of colours and face fonts for their presentations. Sounds familiar? If you also has this kind of problem from time to time this post is special for you. You will find here colour tools which make you feel like an artist (or UI Developer).

Part 1 - Colours

It seems like a big challenge to find a properate colour. However on the Internet we can find a huge number of colour tools! Below you can see my three favorite ones.

1. Coolors

Coolors it is a very useful app for everyone who would like to match colours with some of our favorite colour or need ready sets of colours.

If we press spacebar application it generates many colour schemes for us. If we like one of the colours in the scheme we can lock it and find more combinations with it. When we found our ideal color scheme we can export it to file (pdf, png, scss, svg)

2. Adobe Color CC

Have you ever heard about Adobe Kuler? Now it is called Adobe Color CC. On this online tool you can play with scrolls to find the best colour or use ready color schemes by clicking in menu tab Explore. adobe-color2 You can also get a set of colours based on some pictures. You just upload a photo or an image then Adobe Color CC will find used colours. adobe-color3 If you use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or inDesign you will like the idea that Adobe Color CC allows to export scheme colors straight into them.

3. Colllor

Colllor tool will be useful for people who are looking for a similar color with different tones and saturations. You can choose a color yourself or click Random color at the top of the page to find the best one. This tool is as simple as possible!

Finally

When you prepare an important presentation, please remember about one rules - keep your slides as simple as possible. Do not try to put many pictures or cliparts. Do not fill empty space by text or other decorations. Use no more than three basic colours. This is my formula for your success. Read the second part here: How to create a nice presentation? Fonts!
