4 Color Swatch Palette

4 Color Swatch Palette



5 for the creative use of 4 colours


Interesting stuff, the pattern and colours work quite nicely~ I like it, and I would seriously buy and wear this. I'm looking forward to your next submission.


awesome idea and execution. I think I would wear this.

Incredible & ingenius.

I like how it looks on Black better than the White. But: I'm having trouble giving this a high score right now. It's probably because I feel like the design is too simple. I know what went into creating the design, but I feel like it could have been done with just a web color conversion in photoshop.


It's neat to look at and its
swatches may show up
in futures designs.

way to go, Matt !


that's genuinely amazing! I looked at it and did a double take at first, it really looks like so many different colours! really cool $5

Cheers peeps, this is the first time a shirt of mine has had such a positive response!! Thanks.

Process wise - it was quite easy, due to using red yellow and blue, i was able to make a few patterns that changed colour really easy with minimal adjustment.

Lets hope we do see some of the swatches on future designs!

Thanks again, and i agree, the vibe here is getting better again.

wow... great idea. 5


I'm lovin' it. ;]


...but it doesn't have more than 4 colours. It would be great if you could now take this a step further a put together an image based design, using your swatches - the palette could be a tag on the bottom of your shirt.


First $5 of the day...this is so well done. it is also such a tribute the threadless competition much with so little...


this is nice. its the computer color swatch and looks cool far away and close. i likey

clever but ugly. in the wider world where the technology to print millions of colours actually exists the point of this would be entirely lost. i think it needs something extra like a title or label to make the point to random viewers that it really is just a combination of 4 colours.


i love it.
i hope soooo much that it's printed.
for me annnnd my graphic designer uncle and aunt


I agree - try making it into an image/design now. Clever use of four colors.

thats really cool, but i dont know if i would want to wear it on a shirt. Still, really cool stuff.


i definitely like it in the context of this site.
but like someone else mentioned, it doesn't make much sense out there in the real world.

but still, i like it...
