Hello guys,

I ask a lot of questions. I know Color is one of the most important aspects of a good design. How do you guys pick your colors? Do you go for Triad all the times and use shades from there?

When I go on http://kuler.adobe.com I see pallets and they aren’t soo good. How do you use your pallets? Do you just use that pallet and just use those colors or play with the shades?

Can anyone help me get some nice color pallet (or at least tell me what I should go for)?

I like colors used in this logo but they are not like related colors so I don’t really know how to use them on the website. http://creattica.com/logos/pandawas-villas/32726

I also use ColourLovers and they have a section for Website Trends so you can see the colours being used and how they were implemented.

There’s also a cool adobe air app so you can browse colours on your desktop.
