The most colorholic website
I think I just found the most bingo website for my beloved wife, who's a professional designer but also a real colorholic. ColourLovers.com is for anyone who is really crazy for colors. Whether for ad campaigns, product design, or even in architectural specification: if you love colors you have to check this site.
Apart from news, articles and trend reports, interviews with creative professionals and examples of the way colors are used in the real world, ColourLovers also allows you to compare color palettes, submit news and comments and share your own color palettes and schemes.
I'll refer my wife to this post and we'll see if she can really use it for "inspiration for color by searching, sorting and filtering through keywords to a color scheme that interests you" as they promise.
BTW, apparently I did not invent the colorholic concept. This mobile phone made by LG is targeted for this sort of people but I suspect they did not have the guts to actually use this term for their brand and its more of a joke made by Amy-Mae Elliott who wrote this August 7 piece on pocket-lint.co.uk.
