Description

About

Inspiration for this project came after reading Okabe's & Ito's article on Color Universal Design (CUD). I strongly recommend reading this article, as it contains valuable information about color blindness in general as well as a range of advice and examples on how to make your charts, maps etc. more accessible for color blind people.

This palette is a work in progress. I will add a few sequential schemes in the future. I may also rearrange the layout, drop or incorporate some schemes. Feedback is highly encouraged and valued!

Cheers!

Note

LibreCalc save correct color values only to ods formats, whereas Writer saves the values correctly to odt, doc and docx.
