Tints & Shades Per Color

  1. Stack the Tint & Shade Range, Per Color
  2. Name Tints & Shades by Brightness
  3. Limit Tint & Shade Quantity
  4. Tell Me How To Transform: Hand-Pick or Functionally

Secondary Palettes

  1. Define Meaningful Sets Like Feedback Colors
  2. Illustrate Theme Variety
  3. Define How Theming Works
  4. Avoid Guiding on Color-Mixing Until (At Least) Dust Settles

Contrast & Accessibility

  2. Explore Accessible Color Choices Across Ranges

  4. Use Color to Provoke Broader Accessibility Awareness

Seize the opportunity to advocate for accessibility. Always be probing a collaborator’s knowledge of accessibility (or lack thereof) and educate and advocate all you can.
