Paletton started as pretty simple online utility in 2002. Later it was named Color Schemes. It existed for several years and only several people knew about it, though they liked it and used it mostly for web design. In 2009 there was a major improvement, brand new UI and new name ColorSchemeDesigner. This version became popular among many designers and color fans around the world. Even bigger change was in 2014, when the application was completelly rewritten, named Paletton and got a new domain paletton.com.
