    "I'm a fashion designer by profession so I always want to experiment with colors, I tried this service because it can be custom-made according to my preference. You need to make an account on their website before you can avail of a custom palette but they're responsive and the palette came out wonderful!"

    "It seems like this is only great for creating custom monocromatic palettes because the other color schemes look odd to me. Maybe it's just me"
