Hey everybody :)

I’ve been a web designer since 1999 and been fairly successful. I love surprising clients by telling them I’m colorblind.

Anyone else out there like me?

Your items have nice colors, the brochure has amazing ones, I absolutely adore them, told it in comment, saying it again. I’m impressed. How are you doing that?

Aww shucks.

I generally use colors that I can see (oranges, blues—avoid greens and browns) or use sites like kuler for finding palettes.

I’ve found that design is more about composition and contrast than anything else.

Hi there Rami,

I understand exactly how you feel and what you say, it’s not that unusual that a man got colorblind. In fact, if you search around the web, it’s a pretty common thing. So, cheers mate, got the same problem :)

Working for 14 Years now, I manage to find some ‘tools’ to help me, my pantone pallet, that I carry all the time, Its been very helpful when talking to clients, on the web, you can fin some solution to match color you barely can distinguish, like the sea blue and the light green, or the dark brown and the dark red.

I leave you one of my favourites. http://colorschemedesigner.com

It’s not a drama to have some kind of colorblind, girls don’t even noticed it :D

Regrads, HC
