Hi everybody,

I will start off with I know how to create a customized color ramp in ArcMap 10. My question is what colors do people like to use. My manager is not a fan of the ESRI color ramp selections and would like something that isn't hard on the eyes. I create several heat maps showing population by zip code so I will use between 8-10 colors.

I am also interested in knowing what colors other users use, what colors they like to use and what colors they don't like and would never use on a map.
