What is Colorize?

Colorize is a website that turns any word or phrase into a hex color. It works by using a search engine to find image results for the word or phrase, and then finding the average color across the approximately 25 image results. Because of this, there's usually a small delay when a word is searched for the first time.

What would I use it for?

If you've ever been drawing in Photoshop and thought 'What color is the sky', or have been designing a website and looking for that perfect 'purple' color, or just wanted to know what color sand is, Colorize is the tool for you.
