50 shades of black

Even when we refer to black, we will still think of many different hex refs other than #000000. There are innumerable versions of black, yet nomenclature for the color is inadequate. This library of black color palettes attempts to explore the many variations of black, taken from well-known design systems and inspired by fictional sources.

Grab the colors to use in your own projects as CSS variables or SCSS variables from the dist folder.

Thanks ❤️

This project was inspired by Colors, fun chats about color with the GitHub design team, and built with some helpful JS lessons from @jxnblk.
