Inspiration 💡

We've all been there, you have the perfect idea for a project whether it be a design or a model but don't know what color theme to use. To think that such a trivial matter is preventing you from creating what you want, if only there was a way to test out simple colors and see what will fit your idea perfectly. Introducing Palatter!

What it does ⚙️

Palatter is a very simple website that helps you discover the perfect colors for your idea/project. It generates four random colors for you at first, but you can re-generate those colors again and again till your imagination and creativity get fired up. See a color you like, lock that color so it doesn't get lost, remember a color that goes well with another, add that color into a box. Ever get stuck or have no idea for a color scheme, keep on generating new random color sets.
