Color combination

Bootstrap color combination

The Material Design color system can be used to create a color theme that reflects your brand or style.

The Material Design color system uses an organized approach to applying color to your UI. In this system, a primary and a secondary color are typically selected to represent your brand. Dark and light variants of each color can then be applied to your UI in different ways.

Primary color

A primary color is the color displayed most frequently across your app’s screens and components.

If you don’t have a secondary color, your primary color can also be used to accent elements.

Dark and light primary variants

You can make a color theme for your app using your primary color, as well as dark and light primary variants.

Distinguish UI elements

To create contrast between UI elements, such as distinguishing a top app bar from a system bar, you can use light or dark variants of your primary color on each elements. You can also use variants to distinguish elements within a component, such different variants used on a floating action button container, and the icon within it.

Secondary color

A secondary color provides more ways to accent and distinguish your product. Having a secondary color is optional, and should be applied sparingly to accent select parts of your UI.

Secondary colors are best for:

  • Floating action buttons
  • Selection controls, like sliders and switches
  • Highlighting selected text
  • Progress bars
  • Links and headlines

Dark and light secondary variants

Just like the primary color, your secondary color can have dark and light variants. You can make a color theme by using your primary color, secondary color, and dark and light variants of each color.

Alternative colors

The Material Design color system supports alternative colors, which are colors used as alternatives to your brand’s primary and secondary colors (they constitute additional colors to your theme). Apps can use alternative colors to establish themes that distinguish different sections.

Alternative colors are best for:

  • Apps with light and dark themes
  • Apps with different themes in different sections
  • Apps that exist as part of a suite of products

Alternative colors should be used cautiously, because they can be challenging to implement cohesively with existing color themes.

Theme 1

Yellow is used as the primary color for areas such as onboarding and choosing areas of interest.

Meaning

Color can communicate the meaning of different UI elements. For example, a weather app may display colors indicating current weather conditions, and a navigation app may display color showing traffic conditions, with roads colored red or green

Color should be used consistently in a product, so that certain colors always mean the same thing, even if the context changes. Attention should also be given to colors with local or cultural significance. For example, alerts may typically be colored red in some cultures, but not in others.

    Legend:

    '-->' means 'required'

    All free and pro files require files from 'core' catalog

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working

    All PRO components require 'pro/_variables.scss' file
