Unless you work in a hipsterish company that only does black and white, as a designer, you must constantly work with color. Here are a few tools and website to help you out.

1. Material Color

The Material Design website is THE reference when it comes to anything about using Material Design elements and style. The color section of the website provides very useful tools for the designers who want to go the Material Design route, the main tool being the appropriately named Color Tool.

2. The Flat UI Color Picker

For a while, Flat Design Style was seen as a trend that would go away quickly. It didn’t. I can’t count the number of times I’ve used this awesome Flat UI Color Picker for my own web designs.

3. UI Gradients
