Trendy Web Color Palettes and Material Design Color Schemes & Tools
A few weeks ago, Matt DesLauriers @mattdesl, a graphics programmer working at Jam3, showed us an interesting development carried out on our platform. As you already know, Awwwards has been collecting information on the most noteworthy websites since 2009 – something which makes us an essential source for web design trend analysis. The project started as an experiment, I was just learning Node at the time and decided to see if I could scrape Awwwards for some data visualization. Matt developed a tool which requests each page of the Awwwards winner gallery, then searches the HTML for all the available metadata like site name, author, date, URL, thumbnail, etc. The RGB pixels of each thumbnail are analyzed to get a rough color palette of the 3 primary colors. The result is this brilliant data visualization in which each site is represented as a pie graph showing the distribution of its 3 primary colors. 1. 20 Sites of the Day with Great Color Schemes #c0dfd9 #e9ece5 #b3c2bf #3b3a36 Brdr. 2.
