COLOURlovers’ mission is to make design simple & accessible. We build intuitive design tools and provide the world with access to a massive library of quality creative content. What started as a site to create and share color ideas and inspirations has grown into a huge creative resource reaching nearly 2 Million fine folks each month, and has been nominated for Best Community in the Webby Awards 5 years in a row.
