Daily Discoveries: So you want some fancy colours for your graph?

Just came across this awesome website for generating optimally distinct colours for plots. Not only does it provide the user with a palette of distinct, yet complementary colour choices, it also generates distinct variations of the same colour and allows for the user to manipulate the colour space for a light or dark background. Of course, it gives HEX numbers for all selections, which means that your colour palellte can be utilized when creating plots in R.
