i'm working on autismally systematic approach for creating user interface / web page color schemes from the basic RGB twelve + gray hues.

Phantasm Ai plug-in is super-useful for shifting value (shades & tints; in pic below - X) and saturation (proximity from 50% gray; in pic below - Y) away from the average, thereby creating different consistent tones across the spectrum.

later i can handpick strips of different tones according to the colour theory and necessities for the project. then i can save them as ASE colour scheme file and import into Ps for work on the actual web/ui design.

watcha think, /gd/? got any tips on creating color schemes for large web design projects?

in this screenshot you can see me shifting them hues away from the average. i changed values in phantasm plugin's "color temperature/tint" and "hue/saturation" dialogs which led me to a very warm looking result across the spectrum.

another one of those threads where i ask about a specific matter in possibly alienating and/or unclear way.

as a last resort, i'll try a simple question: /gd/, how do you create colour schemes for design projects?

to the page 10 and beyond!

You're an idiot and your time can be spent better. Just use colours that look nice.

I kind of agree. What's the point of this system? You're just changing the hue of a single page.

Choosing colors for a project has a few approaches.

You can go for for the aesthetic approach and choosing colors that work well together. (kuler, selective picking from photos or simply experimenting with hues.)

You could find the colors people relate to the brand or message and adjust accordingly for a usable set of colors.

Your approach is moreorless an early stage of the aesthetic approach, where you experiment with hues, but not for the purpose of selecting individual colors but rather for the hues themselves.

Personally I think your result isn't very aesthetically pleasing.
