Pokemon Crystal Pokemon Crystal+

Pokemon crystal is a classic 8 bit video game on the Gameboy Color. 8 bit color selection is an exercise in constraints and minimalism, especially when each pokemon must have a unique palette. This dataset is extracted from the palettes of individual pokemon, taken from the in-game graphical assets.

Mao-era posters Mao-era posters+

Chinese posters produced during the Mao-era have surprisingly diverse color palettes - not only stark red but warm, soft colors to bring the bright accents into relief. The color design is very intentional and highly stylized, so generated colors may not match your input exactly.

Architecture Architecture+

Photos of cityscapes and architecture have relatively mild colors, with darker blues, greys and browns as the main color components. Great for a somber, serious look.

The Fall The Fall+

This 2006 film uses saturated color schemes to great effect. The bright, almost surreal colors of the story-scape juxtaposes perfectly with the dark, somber colors of the hospital.

Usage tips

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.
