IRIX

— Formerly known as Iris —

The definitive application for designers and artists to create beautiful color schemes

A single space to work with colors and unify multiple tools into a single one

Finally, someone took the time to create an actually useful color tool, vastly distinct from the 100's of palette picking clones online.

Any UI Designer or Product Designer should give this App a try, it's really affordable and if you are building out Design Systems for large product ecosystems, you are definitely going to need IRIX to design the color combinations in a meaningful way.”
