FAQ*

What's ColorToy for?
ColorToy 2.0 is for mostly for fun! But you may use it for serious projects.
How do I use it?
There are three ways to use ColorToy.
  1. Enter a RGB value. e.g. 211,21,52 and hit "Submit RGB". ColorToy 2.0 will then generate your complementary color scheme.
  2. Enter a HEX value e.g. #c0ffee (see what I did there?) and hit "Submit Hex". ColorToy 2.0 will then generate your complementary color scheme based on your HEX value.
  3. If you're feeling a little frisky and in need of a quick color fix then "Random" is your bestest buddy. Hitting "Random" will, well, generate a random color and associated complementary color scheme. Go on, give it a click.

    Colors are an essential part of your website design, make sure to get the right color tools for your designs, just as choosing the best web host for your website.
Note: "Random" can generate some truly beautiful colors. It can also generate some horrific colors. It's the luck of the draw.
Who made this?
ColorToy is written by David Lochhead, that's me. I'm a Flash Developer by trade and I wrote the ColorToy many years ago for fun. Lots of people seem to find it useful though so I keep it around. You can find out more about me by visiting my blog, my Tumblr or Twitter.
Have you made anything else usefull?
I'm glad you asked. I've recently made a grid layout calculating tool called GridManager. You can find it here: /grid. It's not particularly sophisticated but I find it quite useful.
Can I use the color schemes in a commercial project?
Sure, how the hell can I stop you! ;-)
You spelt colour wrong!
Well, yes and no. While I would, as a UK citizen, spell color as colour, ColorToy is written in Actionscript. In Actionscript the Color object, which the toy uses a lot, is spelt c o l o r. Color is also the way the Americans spell it, and there are many more of them than there are of me!
