View and copy colors from the elementary brand palette

elementary uses a set of bright and friendly colors. Easily access the entire official color palette on your local device, see examples of usage, and copy any variation of each color to paste into your own projects.

Handy features:

Palette also sports a handy dock-like Mini Mode! Shrink the window down while keeping it always-on-top when you need to constantly reference colors, but don’t want it in your way. Mini Mode keeps all of the functionality with a more streamlined workflow.

Get it for $6 on AppCenter

Get Palette and more on elementary AppCenter, the open, pay-what-you-want app store for indie developers. Every app is open source and has been reviewed and curated by elementary to ensure a native, privacy-respecting, and secure experience.
