Seventh day of color. I should have started with a bunch more test layers. They’re way more informative than just squares. I’m going to pause work on color and move on to other parts of the project

I still need to do more testing, tweaking, and note writing, but everything "works"

Snapshot before creating the final styles, cleaning up the section. and writing the readme notes

A solid hour of working on color. The process is a little frustrating. The tools are so much better than they were a few years ago but… even with all the tools I’ve chained together, including the modest ones I’ve made, I still feel like I’m moving at a tenth of the speed and 90% of what I’m doing is busy work a computer should be handling

A little bit more color work. Night shift has gotten too strong, so I need to move on to something else tonight

Revising colors…

Trying to get the entire process in the screenshot, so this isn’t what it actually looks like, =

1. Set the general feeling in ColorBox
2. Use Leonardo to get colors at the exact contrast ratios
3. Add the colors to Figma
4. Create color styles and test

Color is the first thing I need to tackle when I get large blocks of time to work on DSSK
