A Simple Web Developer’s Guide to Color ➝

Laura Elizabeth, writing for Smashing Magazine on color theory:

But the theory has always eluded me, and, truthfully, I’ve never found it useful when trying to use color in my projects. Somewhat ironically, I’ve been finding that the better I get at choosing and using color, the better I become in the theory behind it.

Great tips on finding complimentary colors for web design. I’ll almost certainly use this process when I decide to make design changes to the site in the future.
