A blog for color fans.
Design Seeds is not a color palette tool, although it still deals entirely with color. The author – Jessica Colaluca – has been running the website since 2009, but it’s best to cast her vote:
“As Seeds has grown over the years, the blog has grown into an international community of people passionate about the beauty of nature, wandering and finding inspiration in unexpected situations. By creating palettes inspired by Instagram photos, I work with a wide variety of creators from around the world: artists, designers, photographers and so on, ”reads the description.
The blog’s assumptions are simple. Colaluca receives a photo on Instagram, and then creates a color palette based on it, which he shares in the post. That’s it – we also get quick access to HEX codes, if we want to immediately transfer the colors to the graphics program.
There should be plenty of inspiration: there are many offers, usually two a day. If we want the author to analyze our photo, we should report it on Instagram using the hashtag #SeedsColor.
On the top bar of the menu you can also find the “seasonal atlas”, with palettes divided into seasons. If we have trouble searching through the extensive collections of a blog, the “explore by” function allows you to sort by colors and collections created by Colaluca.
Design Seeds for free
All website functions are available free of charge. The author lives from a donation and a built-in shop with books and gadgets.
A great place to look for inspiration, and perhaps also an incentive to try your hand at creating palettes based on photos. It’s pretty fun.
