In Design Mania, there have already been several publications with similar topics: in a note about color matching services for websites, in addition to inspiration resources, we examined a couple of useful web tools; there was also a post with an overview of palette generators, etc. However, without understanding the logic of how to make a color palette, all of them may turn out to be ineffective.

Recently, a lot of annoying and too “abstruse” implementations of it have appeared on the network. It’s good when designers try to make unusual and beautiful forms of login (see our selection), fitting them into the general concept of a web project, but it’s completely different when they go too far with functionality.
