ESRI Mapping Center has some Style

Take a minute to check out the ESRI Mapping Centers' ArcGIS Styles page and you will see that we have included graphics of the contents of the styles you can download. The center is easy to browse and you can download any style or symbolset to use in ArcGIS.  Ofcourse, some of the symbols will be a little hard to see in their full glory in these screen captures (for example, marker symbols that are bigger than the space allotted in the ArcMap Style Manager large thumbnail view.) However, you can still get a good idea of the contents.

Here's a couple examples to whet your appetite:

Gradients for Different BiomesElevation color ramps for different biomes. download ShadeMax

SubtleSet of light shades of a variety of hues. download Subtle Artist Light Colors

Color Deficient Set of colors for maps for the color deficient. download Color Deficient
