As the title says, here are five awesome tools for web designers!

1. Trello

Trello is a fantastic tool for collaborating as you can create storyboards and invite other members to work on that project. This ensures that every project we manage has the right people working on it. Trello supports everything you could possibly need like; adding attachments; adding due dates to cards; visual representations of design elements plus you can also tag people Twitter style (@name ) You can assign your clients to join the board which keeps them up to date on the progress of their website which means less update calls and more time doing what really matters. Each storyboard allows comments (if a user is assigned the permissions) and so feedback either between the team or from the client is easily seen.

2. Color Hunt

Created by Gal Shir, Color Hunt collects beautiful color palettes for you to use in web design. The palettes can either be used as a starting point and customised or used as they are. From blue to pink to beige, if you need it, Color Hunt probably has it.

3. Random Color

Created by David Merfield,Random Color is a random color generator for JavaScript, but with a difference. Most color generators have dull shades of colors that just look a bit flat but Random Color only pulls attractive colors. You can out in a color and find variations or you can search by hues, luminosity or a number of colors to generate. If you like to start from scratch with your color palette then this is for you.

4. Coverr
