My favorite page this past week:

Just wondering, has anyone done any research into these colors and grouped them into scales of tints/shades of related hues?

After exploring color intensively with CSS Custom Properties, I've landed on the conclusion that it's a pretty heavy cognitive load to get others aligned on color.

So I'm looking for a more accessible approach, which has drawn me towards named CSS colors.


@tychi I really like this page that groups named colours by hue: (hint: click the top bar). And it doesn’t even require JavaScript. :·)

It’s cool how practically all of them look great when used on a big area.

@xHire yesss, this is exactly the type of thing I'm looking for, thank you!

Since you might like it too, this is the color experiment I'm abandoning in favor of heading towards named colors:
