Colormind is a color scheme generator that uses deep learning. It can learn color styles from photographs, movies, and popular art.
Different datasets are loaded each day, check back tomorrow for even more color inspiration. Visit the blog
for tech info or have a look at our API
Pokemon Gold and Silver+
One of the earliest color Pokemon games, Pokemon Gold/Silver is an icon of the hand-held 8 bit era. This dataset is taken directly from in-game pokemon sprites and contains bright, complementary color schemes with heavy use of black and white.
The works of Makoto Shinkai - including 5 centimeters per second, the garden of words and children who chase lost voices. Shinka's works are often less saturated than similar anime, preferring to use more realistic, photographic colors in general. He reserves more contrasting palettes for the emotional climax and the many set-pieces of sky, stars and ocean that appear in his films.
American revolutionary art+
The works of Benjamin West and John Trumbull. Art produced during the American revolution generally have high contrast and subtle hues.
Colors extracted from the graphical assets of Maplestory, a 2d-sidescroller from the early 2000s. Bright, cartoony colors befitting of the game's bubbly style.

If no colors are locked Colormind will generate color palettes at random.
If you have a specific starting color in mind, pick that color and lock it. The location of the color does matter, so experiment with different placements.
If you have two complementary colors, try placing them at the opposite ends of the palette. Colormind will tend to generate nice intermediate values.
If you want more variety try placing contrasting colors closer together, colormind will then tend to create triadic and other more complex color schemes.
