Coming up with a great new color palette for a design can often be tricky. Sometimes, designers get stuck in a color rut or need help figuring out what colors will go best with a visual. For some fresh contemporary color inspiration, there are a number of great color palette resources online. Here are a few favorites the Launch team turns to for amping up design work:
This is a great little site where you can upload an image or point to a URL, and it will give you a color palette based on the image. There are many of these out there, but this one stands out because it provides a light, medium and dark palette, as well as a complete palette.
Kuler is a wonderful resource built right in to Creative Suite 4 software. It’s a great way to explore some new color themes, and the content is created by users worldwide.

As the Launch Agency Summer Intern, I have been learning the ropes of agency life and discovering the truth in being a copywriter. It has been a great experience.
I am ecstatic to be working with such a talented group of individuals. Even though I’ve only been here a short while, I’ve started to learn the value of an internship – the stuff you won’t find in a classroom. While working on my personal portfolio, I could do whatever in my ads and creativity always beat practicality. However, I have learned that REAL advertising is a well-balanced mixture of the two that begins with a consumer insight and a well-crafted communication strategy.
My days are filled with concepting for clients, writing articles for the Launch Pad, and even venturing to a photo shoot or two; that is the true glory of being an intern. I’ve gotten to see aspects of real-world advertising that never would have been possible without this opportunity.
When I first visited the Launch Agency website I could just tell it had to be a cool place to work. I was right.

Locations Close To Everything. Luxury Second to None.
To introduce three new luxury living communities to North Texas, Western Rim Property Services turned to their marketing partner, Launch Agency. Two of the properties, The Estates of Prosper and The Mansions of Prosper, are located about 35 miles outside Dallas. The third property, The Estates of McKinney, is located 30 miles north of Dallas.
Launch created gorgeous oversized brochures for each community as well as billboards, fliers, post cards, wine labels and apartment guide ads. Each property provides many community features such as on-site health clubs, executive business centers, WiFi, resort-style swimming pools, billiards rooms and more. These are the latest of several Western Rim communities Launch has provided marketing support for over the past two years.
Check out the Western Rim Property Services site to learn more about the newest properties and to view the brochures for each.
