Picking Colors for Your Podcast

It is no secret that I am inflicted with colorblindness. Colorblindness affects 1 of 12 men in the world and 1 of 200 women.

While my dreams of being a fighter pilot were dashed at a young age, it hasn't stopped me from doing things like building websites or photography. There are tools out there that make these tasks a little more accessible for people like me.

Adobe created a website called, "Kuler," sometime around 2010. They then rebranded to Adobe Color in 2014. The site allows you to find color combinations that look great. You can explore trending colors. It gives you the ability to upload an image and it will then give you a number of different color sets that would look good with that image. It is a really powerful tool for everyone—colorblind or not.

How does this affect podcasting? I thought you'd ask. Adobe Color is great for any branding projects. Whether you're creating new podcast graphics, cover art, social graphics, a website, or basically anything for your brand, you can use Adobe Color to find a color palette and then save that palette so they're always handy.

It also imports your palettes - or "libraries" - into Photoshop, Illustrator, or Adobe Express. If you use Canva, you can easily copy and paste the color hex codes into your brand kit so that your color use is consistent there, too.
