The process of experimenting with color is frustratingly slow - even when you use the developer tools included in browsers. Finding the right CSS properties is time consuming, and requires digging through the DOM tree. Due to this we settle on sub-par designs.

Color Producer aims to fix that by giving you a productive way to explore uses of color in your website designs. Changes are instant and ideas can be tested in seconds rather than hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any System Requirements?

Color Producer was built using the latest features in Mac OS®. For that reason, a Mac® with Mac OS® 10.11+ and 64-bit processor are required.

Do I need a powerful computer?

No, Color Producer should work on the majority of hardware. Please use the trial version and test the performance on your machine. For reference, the demonstration video on this site was created with a mid 2014 - 13" - MacBook Pro® Retina

How does it work?

When you load a webpage using the browser in Color Producer, it's working away behind the scenes to analyze and capture the colors used in CSS. Colors are then automatically placed into the Color Collection. From there you can start modifying the colors, and building relationships between them.

It's as easy as 1-2-3:
  1. Load a webpage
  2. Change the colors to your liking
  3. Copy the CSS and integrate it into your stylesheet
