Goals

  • All colors shall have adequate use
  • Provide general color for UI design
  • All colors will be beautiful in itself and harmonious
  • At the same brightness level, the perceived brightness will be constant

Note

  • All the color is tested on deuteranopia and protanopia mode. The process will soon be published in the article.
  • The colors are subject to change in the future. Thus, using an Open color as a main identity color is not recommended.
