Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Have a great idea for a website? Business? Or any online project? One of the toughest, but simplest challenges with starting one of these is selecting an attention-grabbing color scheme that looks beautiful and works with your idea. Introducing a new web-tool called “Coolors” that can help, the color-scheme generator offers five-color schemes with individual HTML color codes as well.

One hidden feature of “Coolors” is locking and editing individual swatches. Let’s say four of the five colors are perfect, but one seems just a bit off. Lucky for you, you can choose to change one of the colors, and make it as perfect as you’d like. This might be useful if you already have a logo designed, for example, or just have a design eye and want to slightly adjust the overall theme. It’s so simple to use, and can save you hours of worrying about which colors to go with on your next web project.
