Colour Poetry
As a way of improving my work, I used to do spend time researching Adobe's
Kuler website.

Since I've been there, I could realize that some people had the
talent to create more than just beautiful color themes. Indeed, they used
the themes as a way to communicate feelings and sensations, just like
poetry. I became amazed with how the themes were a beautiful translation
of their own names.

So, I decided to start a project called "Colour Poetry" to show it in a
collaborative way.

The first thing I did was access Adobe Kuler's website and collect
some examples of what I call Colour Poetry. Then I found many
beautiful themes. After that, I also did some designs just for fun.

While I was making mine, I realized that I could transform the designs
into a platform by inviting others to collaborate on the project
instead of creating my own color themes.

The overall idea is to create a collaborative project and give the credit to those
whose made the themes, so every design will be signed by the person
who made the themes on www.kuler.adobe.com.
