Unless like most designers you don’t think the sun shines from adobe’s ass then you will have probably already come across adobes kuler. (which is a great way for the lazy to choose a good looking colour scheme)

this week we have three resources for the colour blind:

worqx.com site of a self confessed ‘colour enthusiast’

www.colormatters.com colour and emotional response

www.colourlovers.com user contributed community of colour palettes and patterns.

colorblender.com simple, but seems to work well, creating a palette of 5 harmonious colours

tidal rocks

What is AJAX?
Ajax (asynchronous javascript and xml) is the combination of several web technologies that allow better user interaction with websites. Ajax allows the content of a page to change dynamically depending on user interactions with the page.

Ajax Resources:
I’ve listed a couple of sites below which offer demos of scripts and access to examples or free downloads. In particular the code editor at ajaxdaddy which allows you to tweak the page live and see the changes is great!

> ajaxdaddy.com (recommended site)

> freeajaxscripts.net

> bestajaxscripts.com
