Core ansarada palette
When cut we bleed PMS 376. Colour is very important to ansarada, it is how we’re recognised and remembered by our people and our customers.
Green is our primary colour and it sets us apart from our competitors. While it is the most prominent colour in our printed communications, we use it sparingly in the product to attract attention or to indicate status.
Charcoal is our secondary colour and is used to enhance the clarity of green. It is a prominent colour in our printed communications and is the primary colour for typography in the product.
Silver is used to compliment the cool tones of green and charcoal. In the product silver is used to de-emphasise less important elements.
Black is used minimally where charcoal is not appropriate.
Without white there is no colour.
Extended product palette
User interfaces are tricky and they need a few extra colours to perform their magic tricks. These colours are unique to our product and set us apart from our competitors.
Fuchsia is a primary colour used only in the product. It is derived by manipulating the hexadecimal colour values of green which makes it a perfect partnership. Fuchsia is only ever used to add emphasis to an error or dangerous action. Handle with care.
Charcoal and Silver Tints
Tints of charcoal and silver are mostly used in interface elements to indicate different states like resting, hover or disabled. The tints can also be used to create the visual structure that organises each page.
Can’t see the forest for the trees? Forest is only ever used to maintain the legibility of green text in body copy and messages.
Choose wisely as all colours are not created equal. To make text legible we ensure the contrast of foreground and background colours comply to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
