A Nice Red — Instantly generate UI colours that complement your brand
I just launched A Nice Red, a simple little tool to grab some colours to use in your UI. Pop in your brand’s primary colour and you get back a nice red for error states, green for success, and amber for warnings.
Why would I use this?
Use this if you just want a decent colour palette quickly, so you can get on with building your awesome product.
Will the colours be perfect?
They’ll be a great starting point or fine for an MVP. Be careful using them for text because I haven’t checked them for accessible contrast. If you have suggestions on how the colours could be better please don’t hesitate to message me on Twitter.
Why did you make this?
I made A Nice Red to learn the basics of React. I’m a product designer but really enjoying doing front-end at the moment.
It was inspired by a tweet from my mate Joe:
What other technologies are used?
Can I please tell you how bad your code is?
Absolutely, go ahead. I know it needs a bit of tidying up, at the very least.
