The google palettes are monochromatic. Which keeps the same RGB ratio shifting the Lightness and saturation up or down. To do this you have to convert the RGB value to HSL representation (Hue, Saturation, Lightness), alter the lightness and saturation then convert back if need be. It is possible to keep it in the RGB space while calculating, but the math is ...

I don't know if it's still needed, but I made this little CSS3/AngularJS tool for a project to generate Material Colors palettes. It's far from finished, but you can however enter your 500 hex color and use an external tool like colorzilla to get the color values from there. Also the lighter ones are exactly the ones google used, but the darker ones are off ...

I really recommend getting a copy of "Stop Stealing Sheep & find out how type works" by Erik Spiekermann and E.M. Ginger. The book does a fantastic job of explaining the basic principles behind type and typesetting and is fairly understandable even by folks who don't have domain knowledge in design or typography. And then I'd also recommend hanging out ...

I, personally, like to use an app called ColorSchemer on the Mac. However, I'm sure other color tools may be similar in nature. (I believe ColorSchemer is not available for Windows.) So, start with your desired wheel and pick the base color. (In this case a split-complimentary wheel with a random orange as the base color.) The app provides the other two ...

Thats's because you export it in CMYK and you paste/import it in RGB. Keep in mind that both programs (illustrator and photoshop) has to be set with the same color mode. So, go to your file in illustrator and click on "File" > "Document color mode" > "RGB Color" Now fill your illustrator file with your color #ff5522. Paste it on photoshop or just save it, ...

I left blue untouched. Before altering the colors you need to calculate the luminosity. Then you can make colors brighter by using more luminosity and darker with less.

you should consider the printing result of your logo while your "branding" for someone. What I mean you should consider the CMYK, now the blue in both logos have a very little yellow in it 1.5% and 4.5% ... in the phase of the design you should do some approximation and I think in both blue you should eliminate yellow complexly. Also the red in both ...

While there are many principles of design that are very useful, design is about intuition (hence why some people are naturally 'better at it'). In this case I would agree with you that the first design is more balanced on both black or white backgrounds. In addition, the colours are more friendly on the eye. The strong colours in the second logo are ...

I did script, now i have possible for copying colors to setup new gradient and transperency from reading on raster image. Programmatically can use all points of vector image to set new colors. But that's not all ..I had a lot of errors in locating them on a raster image, you need to know well on math. These images are not the same because of the ...

The subject is a bit challenging*. The short answer is: You look up the image profile, which contains the mapping to what it should look like in a known reference space. However this look-up tells you what its intended to look like, not what it originally was. So if you want to measure the values you need to have an untainted source. Basically that ...
