Colour Schemes

This is more for designers than developers but some of us have to do both :)

When coming up with a colour scheme for a site or UI it's a good idea to use colours that compliment each other. This isn't just a design thing, it's partly mathematical and there are some sites out there that can calculate compatible colours for you.

Another thing that can be useful is the ability to blend two colours together. allows you to input two hex colour values and it will give you the resulting hex colour value.
