I want to buy a new Timbuk2 Large Messenger but I can't decide what colors I want. Please help me design a custom one!

With a tiny bit more information, I'd be happy to help. Really, all I'm asking for is (for instance)
- are there any colors you don't want?
- what are your favorite colors?
- is this for work?
- are you color blind?
- are you a female steve or a male steve?
- what fabrics would you like?
- etc.

But hey, I'll take a guess anyway and say you should get a blue one.

The colors of the flag of your favorite country.

Use colors from your family crest/shield.

First letters of the color names stand for an interesting acronym.

I would suggest making the inside a high-contrast color - one of mine is yellow, and one of mine is light grey (the outsides are combinations of blue/black/purple). This way you can't lose pens, etc, in the bottom against a dark color.

What's your favorite color? You could use that for the right and left panels, with either a more neutral color in the middle (black, grey, maybe one of the specialty fabrics) or a slightly different shade (lighter/darker) of the same color in the center. You could also use your favorite color in the center, and then use either a darker or lighter shade in the right and left panels. If you decide to go with three distinct colors, the suggestions above are great. I'd also consider using the colors of my favorite sports team or the colors of a favorite band's logo. Happy shopping!
