Triadic harmonious colors in hex
Category:
Here's an interesting small trick to quickly get triadic harmonious colors when programming or writing HTML:

Take a hex representation of a color, e.g.
#778899:
Then rotate to the left to get the first triadic color:

And rotate once more to get the second one:
#997788:

Easy, isn't it ;)
