Colors & Themes
In the world of data visulaisation colors are a hidden superpower. With a single value they can convey good or bad, large or small, important or superfluous, professional or personal, expensive or cheap. But colors can also be deeply personal, cultural or inaccessible.
Every novem visualisation has a color theme, the theme dictates which names gets mapped to which color. By default all visualisations use the standard novem color scheme which is outlined below. For professional and up novem also offers the option to create your own, custom, color schemes.
Every novem color scheme offers a few different color names that will be translated into a color. Each name has one light and one dark mode version. Below is an example shoing the default novem color names along with their light and dark colors.
