Pantone Electric Pastels article and palette

Recommended Posts

Nice colors, William. The Pantone website gives the RGB values for each of those pastels, and I have attached an .afpalette file for them. (Note - the colors in the palette are a match for the colors on the website, but only if the starting point is a document using sRGB as a color profile. Otherwise, they will start out too saturated.)

Thank you.

So how do I use the palette please in Affinity Designer?

Are these the colours labelled as for Fashion, Home and Interiors or the ones labelled as Graphics?

With an earlier palette I tried to make a greetings card using all of the colours in the palette.

William - In response to the other question you asked, the RGB values were taken from the "Fashion, Home and Interiors" swatches. The "Graphics" swatches looked a bit too dark and saturated to my eye, and less like "pastels" (even electric ones).

Thank you. That is good. I will try to think up a design for a greetings card that uses all of those colours.
