Colors, like music, symbols, or words, carry meaning. And when colors are mixed, the meaning can change entirely. Adobe Spark Post’s custom color palette creator is an easy-to-use tool that provides pre-selected palettes with trusted color combinations fit for any need.
As you get started with a design, think about what colors might be important. Are you creating a design for a brand that already has a selected color scheme? Are you creating something seasonal, celebratory, or sophisticated? Once you have a rough idea, toggle through our pre-selected palettes to find ones that resonate best with your design.
Once you’ve entered your Spark workspace, click on the “Colors” icon to open up the color menu. A pre-selected list of palettes is available for you to explore.
Is everything perfect except for just one swatch? Click on any icon in the palette to personalize the color. Hex and RGB values are accepted and you can even save your own brand colors to the library for easy access. Hit the “shuffle” icon on your palette to see different variations with the same colors.
Achieve ultimate color cohesion with the eyedropper tool. Using the eyedropper, click anywhere on your design or background photo to sample the color. Spark will match and add it to your palette.
Using color as a communication tool is much more ambiguous and intuitive than it may seem. Colors make us feel certain types of ways that we may find hard to explain. Have fun while creating your color scheme. Allow yourself room to play around with your palette, get creative, and feel inspired by what your design is communicating.
