I _love_ the designers (and programmers) over at “IconBuffet”:http://iconbuffet.com/. They recently released a dashboard widget, “ColorBurn”:http://www.firewheeldesign.com/widgets/, that has a new color palette each day.
They are having a “contest”:http://firewheeldesign.com/sparkplug/2006/February/a_colorburn_contest.php for a few more days to have the community give them some new and fresh color schemes
They way it works is this:
* come up with a color scheme of 4 colors
* take a picture of that scheme as boxes next to each other
* make a comment on the thread listing your colors, plus a link to your image
I’m not going to come up with the next great color set, but I can make their dull view of a cool contest a bit cooler (with a little help from my friend greasemonkey):
Don’t like the black background? Click the link at the bottom to make the bg change to white.
Here is the script.
