COLOURlovers in TIME’s 50 Best Websites of 2008

2008 has been a great year for us so far. We reached several milestones like 1,000,000 named colors and 100,000 members and we received some pretty major recognition...

We were honored by the Webby Awards as one of the Top 5 Web Communities for the second year in a row. The Web Visionary Awards gave us the Application, Community and Best of Show awards...

And TIME just named COLOURlovers one of the 50 Best Websites of 2008!


Thank you all for being a part of our community and for helping us grow as one of the best places to share some of your time online. We have more big ideas planned and look forward to ever increasing the amount of color love in the world.

This is really, no surprise. COLOURLOVER is the best community I have ever joined. I can always count on endless love from this site. I am so glad this site is being reconised. Would love to get my hands on a copy of that TIMES.

Wonderful news ... hope the server can handle the newbies...

Time is probably one of the top 50 magazines, so that is well deserved. .... goes off to see
Although the site caters to design professionals who want to show off or share ideas about color and pattern, it's fun for lay people too.

Me = lay person...?

This is great. But it was pretty self-evident this place was brilliant. ;D But I can't believe CL doesn't have a Wikipedia article! I thought they document anything...-.-
