Apply colors to grids

Adding colors to a grid is an easy and effective way to make text stand out. It’s one of the simplest tools you can use to deliver your message.

To add a solid color to your grid:

  1. Click the grid you’d like to fill with color.
  2. Click on the color tile on the toolbar above the design.
  3. Click on any color in the color palette to apply it to the section of the grid.
  4. To choose another color click the + button to open the color picker.
  5. Drag the circle to the color you’d like to add.
  6. Click anywhere outside of the popup to continue designing.

tip: Choosing the right typography and color contrast can make all the difference. If you fill in a section of the grid with a dark color, opt for white (or light colored) text. If you choose a light colored background, go with a dark-colored text.
