|A professional theme with hand-picked & bold colours for your VS Code editor and terminal. The theme is heavily inspired by the Pantone colour of the year 2018 and the Outrun aesthetics. However, colours are on the pastel side to help provide contrast and highlight what is essential. Color choices have taken into consideration what is accessible to people with colorblindness and in low-light circumstances.|

Outrun aesthetics profoundly inspires this theme. The colour choices for the theme were made also taking into consideration accessibility for those users with colourblindness.
The theme consists of a reasonably dark background and popping contrast colours.
I also made decisions to allow for meaningful contrast for reading comprehension and optimal colour-popping
|USAGE||COLOUR HEX CODE|
Accessibility was kept close in mind when designing this theme. The colours were chosen such that they would be acceessible to folks with colourblindness.
The font in the previews is Fira Code. Editor settings to activate font ligatures:
"editor.fontFamily": "Fira Code", "editor.fontLigatures": true,
The preview image for the Python syntax is using Bracket Pair Colorizer, a cool extension that highlights matching brackets. Using this extension can help reduce unwanted errors.
I defined the following colours in my
"bracket-pair-colorizer-2.colors": [ "#f18fac", // soft pink "#facd49", // golden "#c56cf0", // bright lilac "#f85e9f" // hot pink ]
