Neutral Colors

Book: Refactoring UI
  • Neutral colors are shades of grey

  • Greys are good for human interfaces

    • Ex: Text, backgrounds, forms etc
    • 8-10 shades are needed.
  • When filling in grey:

    • Select the darkest and lightest colors
    • One heuristic is to see if it looks good as text colour and background respectively
    • Then fill in the remaining slots
