ACJ’s Colours

A lot of things I do involve colour to some extent. This page is only about projects, et al. that are specifically about one colour, or colours in general. For more work, see my portfolio.


The objective of this project is simple: To create images with one pixel for every 24-bit rgb-color (there are 16,777,216 of them); not one colour missing, and not one colour twice.


Color-themed artworks.

An Internet/domain artwork from 2013 that consists of one colour, being #a00ade. This is the colour you get when Web browsers interpret my first name (Alexander) as an html color.
Hope For Minimal Abstract Art Part 1 - 7
A digital heptaptych by former artist/designer duo Miktor & Molf for which I did the technical realization. Every website is represented by one of the seven main rainbow colours. (Currently offline.)
An Internet/domain artwork from 2013 that continuously changes colour. The exact colours and intervals are random. The title is a portmanteau of Dutch words for randomness (willekeur) and colour (kleur).


Some hexadecimal color codes show typographic similarities with words. Coincidentally, some of those words could be associated with the color that is represented by the code. Here are some I like for said reasons:

d31d33Leetspeak for the name of my company, deIdee. Used for details that compliment the main color scheme of the corporate identity.
f00Leetspeak for foo. Happens to be a color useful for examples.
1c3Leetspeak for ice. Happens to be a cold color.
a55A color that looks like ass?

A whole different kind of colour hack, (ab)uses a parsing rule in visual Web browsers to interpret any text string as a colour code. This causes the string alexander to be converted to #a00ade. See #A00ADE and view its source.
