Design Tools to Help You Create Your Next Project- Part 3

Coolors

Coolors is a super fast color scheme generator. You can explore thousands of pre-existing color schemes (each one features five colors). Or, you can generate your own in a matter of minutes. Once you go to the “generate” page, hit the space bar to start with a different color scheme, and then you can adjust each color’s hue, saturation, and brightness accordingly.


Web Gradients

Web Gradients is a collection of almost 200 background gradients, created by the itmeo team. You can use each of these content backdrops for any part of your website. You’ll find a .PNG version of each gradient, as well as easy-to-copy CSS3 crossbrowser code. Bonus: there are even curated packs for Sketch & Photoshop.


On Color Hunt, browse through countless palettes, comprised of four colors each. You can browse and sort through the list based on what’s hot and popular, or just pick “random” and see what comes up. Create your own and share it on the site.


Color Palettes

Need to create a color palette for your latest website or project? It can take a surprisingly long time to create a color scheme from scratch. Make the process easier and browse through these sites for color palette inspiration

Illustrio

Get ready to spend a lot of time playing around with icons on Illustrio. There are hundreds of icons to choose from, and each one is highly customizable—get each one in 16 different styles, and make each one any color you want.



On the Swifticons site, you’ll find more than 2,000 high-quality icons, which you can download in six editable styles: outlined, filled, colored, jolly, flat, and pattern. You can download the entire pack of icons for under $100—or opt for the activities pack (152 icons), which is yours for free.

Microsoft launches a new AI startup program at Station F in Paris

Microsoft is rethinking its strategy when it comes to startup acceleration in Paris. The company is going to focus on artificial intelligence. This will lead to a new program for AI startups at  Station F . Microsoft has had a startup accelerator in the Sentier neighborhood for a few years now. When Station F opens at the  end of June , the company is going to focus exclusively on artificial intelligence with a partnership with  INRIA  and move everything to the startup campus. “We think that we’re first going to select 5 or 6 startups that can foster an ecosystem around INRIA and themselves,” Microsoft France Developer Experience leader Christophe Shaw told me. “The idea is that we’re eventually going to have a hundred startups in this club.” And the first startup joining this program is  Recast.ai . This French startup has been building a service that helps you build, launch and manage chatbots. The company also takes care of hosting those bots. A few big French companies hav

Making telescopes that curve and twist

New computational tool automates design of telescoping structures that provide compact storage and rapid deployment.

Credit: Chris Yu/Carnegie Mellon University A new tool for computational design allows users to turn any 3D shape into a collapsible telescoping structure. New mathematical methods developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University capture the complex and diverse properties of such structures, which are valuable for a variety of applications in 3D fabrication and robotics—particularly where mechanisms must be compact in size and easily deployable. The research, "Computational Design of Telescoping Structures," led by Carnegie Mellon Professors Stelian Coros and Keenan Crane and PhD student Christopher Yu, will be presented at the annual SIGGRAPH conference, 30 July to 3 August in Los Angeles. The conference each year spotlights the
