    Heya dudes, heaya Chris great site i have to say.

    now i am a beginner web designer, i have no sketching on paper experience and i need to ask you.
    How did you choose the colours you gonna use when you designing a web site?Did you use something like or adobe kuler to pick a colour scheme for you and if yes, how did you know where to put each colour, e.g this colour goes to background and this to the links?

    thank you,
    greetings from Greece!


    I would suggest to check out The Lodge here, as it will show you hours of video on how this site was redesigned — including how the color scheme was chosen.


    I like to explore and search for color schemes. Sometimes I got a base color in mind and chose a color scheme to match that one. Where to put each color depends on the look you want to achieve. I usually just play around a bit in Photoshop or CodePen to figure that out.


    I often use Adobe Kuler since I am color blind. Once you get a color palette one of techniques you can use is contrast. Background color to text color should have sufficient contrast for good readability. I also take into account the feelings and moods that each color can give to your users.

    Here are a couple links on color theory.
