"Choosing colors should not be a gamble. It should be a conscious decision. Colors have meaning and function." ~Verner Panton For those of us who have been blessed with the gift of sight, we are able to see various kinds of colors all around us. We are very fortunate to have this gift. However, how many people are able to recognize the value of a given color? What is the attribute that constitutes a color's hue or its saturation? All of us who have this gift can say that we enjoy the ability to see all of these colors, but how many of us really know anything about what constitutes a color? As a Computer Graphics Design student I was not sure if I really knew enough about color. For example, I often question whether or not I have the ability to make a good color choice for a book cover or a poster design. As such, it made me want to do more research about what these beautiful colors mean to everyone and what other people's color preferences are. For this application, I provide background knowledge concerning color physics and incorporate the concept of "color preference" for broken down by age group. Users are able to interact with various colors and also have the ability to share their preferences of colors to other users.
