The Color of…Everything

August 25th, 2011 by Cobwebs

This is a really unique little Web application. The Color Of is “an attempt to find out the color of anything.” Type a word into the search box, and the site queries Flickr to find pictures tagged with that word. Then it builds up a color composite of those images–watching them layer is really neat–and presents the “color” of that concept.

Here are a few I tried:

Color of Halloween

Color of Scream

Color of Horror

In addition to just being fun to play with, this would provide great color inspiration for things like quilts. Type in something like “bloody” or “monster” and create your palette based on the results.
