I was messing around with some colors this weekend and not being frightfully happy with any of them. So, back to Color Theory 101. I setup a file for myself in photoshop to use as a palette and tried to remember what I could from Design Fundamentals (one of the hands down best classes I ever took for understanding just "why" you do something, rather than just because "It looks good."). I'm going to keep playing around with this a bit more, but I can see where it helps to take a step like this.
It kind of looks like sorbet. That's making me hungry. But speaking of color, I know it's old news (and everybody and their brother has already been over there), but I really, really like kuler.
