Project Title: Color Palettes in Hex
BASIS Advisor: Rob Biemsderfer
Internship Location: GeneSiC Semiconductor Inc.
Onsite Mentor: Dr. Ranbir Singh
There are many details to consider when choosing the color palette for your new website. Whether it is an online store, a blog, or a photo gallery, the different colors have to be readable, well balanced, and eye-catching at the same time. It is easy to find your first color, but increasingly difficult to choose the rest of a well-balanced palette without concrete knowledge of color theory. In this project, I will attempt to use a quantitative approach to creating color palettes, generating palettes using their Hexadecimal code. This project categorizes and analyzes the composition of 100 most popular color palettes – found on ColourLovers, one of the biggest color palette review sites – in Hexadecimal. The result will use mathematical relationships between color codes to guide the generation of color palettes that are backed by both color theory and aesthetics.
Hi everyone, Thank you for supporting me through my Senior Project! The link will be posted below by Admin. No prior information is needed to understand the project. The presentation covers all of my blogs and much more! There is a fun game suggestion at the end, feel free to try it out! All figures […]
V1.Color approximation: This part of the program analyzes what colors are in the palette based on patterns within Hex. This approximation is based on odd digits only, and based on the relative difference between each digit. Each digit and the difference between digit has to be in specific ranges in order to be classified as […]
Hi everyone, This week I am doing data processing. Data: 100 palettes, each with 5 colors are obtained. Each 6 digit code represents a color, #8C867A, #AB9F77, #8B628A, #A879AF, #B4A3CF The code is cleaned up, and only odd digits are concerned, since the base 16^1 = 16, and 16^0 =1. the even digit (16^0 […]
Hi, I mainly focused on collecting and analyzing data this week. I gathered hex values of the first 100 ranked color palettes created by color lovers Ran through some programs I wrote and imported the processed data into R for further analysis and presentation I encountered some difficulty while creating my program.

Hi, My brain seriously have trouble not fighting against the additive color system. In real life there is no way you can mix red and green to get yellow. Since I am working with Hex, #ffff00 does indeed make yellow. Its causes trouble when I see #ffff00 and think that must be brown. In preparation […]
Hi everyone, great to be back. First, Thank you Audrey for supporting my mental-health! For the past few weeks, I have not updated anything as my time commitment needed for my internship increased substantially. I was finally able to get back to the senior project research. Though I could not talk about my internship […]
Hi everyone, this is the second week of my remote internship, developing website themes from scratch. Last week I went over HTML in preparation for learning CSS. This week I continued to improve the functionality of my website theme. Navigation wise, I fixed the drop-down menus, added a sidebar, and a blog function […]
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, I continued to work from home for the second week of my internship. I have been learning theme development in WordPress and built the basic interactive web pages and menus. It was funny yet frustrating when I tried to spend hours debugging only to realize that I forgot to […]
Part I If you don’t have time to read the entire post, Please jump to Part II Hello everyone, The first week of my internship went well! I was introduced to the group that I will be working with and met people throughout the company. I engaged in exciting discussions with computer technicians and HR […]
Hello everyone! My name is Tina and welcome to my Senior Project blog! As a student interested in both art and science, I am fascinated by the properties of paints and inks and their underlying interaction with the surface. The two most common components in paints are the pigments in its dispersed phase and the […]
