A List of Simple Colours

A list of simple colours. Seems like such a trivial idea, doesn’t it? Recently in one of our apps, we needed a list of colours to differentiate some categorized items. Most of the palette-creating tools on the web give you a palette of 5-6 colours.

We needed around 10.

Enter Sasha Trubetskoy and his blog post, List of 20 Simple, Distinct Colors.

Sometimes the best things in life are simple.

Thanks Sasha.
