TJ Mahr hinted to this Canva webpage on Twitter. It contains 100 beautiful color palettes including their hexadecimal color codes. For instance, these three below.
The great thing is that these color palettes are include in the
ggthemes package in R. Hence, the following code uses this Nightlife palette directly in an R script, resulting in the plot below.
aes(x = disp, y = mpg, color = factor(cyl)) +
geom_point(size = 6) +
ggthemes::scale_color_canva(palette = "Nightlife")
What’s your favorite color palette among these 100?
Picular.co calls itself Google, but for colors on its website. And not without good reason. On the site, you type in a color association (e.g., forest green), and it provides you an palette overview of associated colors and their hexadecimal (Hex) codes.
I don’t precisely know how it works, but it seems to work quite well!
