Some two weeks ago guys behind Bootstrap front-end framework released Bootstrap 3. Since I was using Bootstrap 2 before for several of my projects I decided to give it a try to build some test project. I didn’t have a lot of idea what that could be as most of my effort these days are around WordPress themes. The very first thought where to build Bootstrap 3 powered WordPress theme but after quick research I dropped this idea. The thing is that there are so many Bootstrap powered themes that it would be pointless to create another one.
I dropped the idea for Bootstrap testing for some days until I started to work on new theme where I decided to use Metro UI style and Metro Colors. I did some Googling and found that there are no one good resource where information about Meteo colors can be found. This led me to new beta project.
I gathered 18 Metro colors and created a document that contains all the information about these colors starting with short description all way up to binary RGB codes. The main goal of Metro color directory is to keep all the information about Metro colors in one place so designers can easily find these colors and use them for their work. Personally I already found this directory very useful when creating my WordPress themes and I hope other will too.
Meteo colors were introduced with Windows Phone and Windows 8 and become very popular because of entire design concept which involves flat design elements alongside nice looking colors. Microsoft has received a lot of complaints about drastic changes they have made in Windows 8 but people are slowly getting used to it and flat Metro UI style and colors are trending in web and graphic design.
