Colors

Colors are prefixed with c- (eg $c-w100), and can be used directly in Sass with their variable names. In HTML, add bg-c- for backgrounds, t-c- for text color & border-c- for border color (currently limited to greyscale & Azure blue).

Heads up!

DreamHost is committed to the WCAG AA standard for contrast ratios, which improves usability for users with low vision. When choosing color combinations, make sure they have at least 4.5:1 contrast ratio. This handy contrast checker can help.


Web Application Palette

The DreamHost palette is primarily derived from blue and white. The secondary palette consists of red, green, orange, and yellow. These colors are used across all web apps at DreamHost. Also included are dedicated background and grayscale classes which are derived from blue.
