Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.
Picking colors for a project is one of those things you either love or hate about web development. Some people love playing with colors and experimenting with combinations, while others want to find a set of colors that look good together and move on as quickly as possible.
The CodePen community has so many wonderful Pens that can help you out no matter where you fall on the emotional spectrum of color picking. Here are some of our favorites!
