Standard Colours for OAC
We at the OAC User Group feel that implementing a standard set of colours would help OAC. It would make it easier to share data visualisations, such as graphs and maps if the groups were directly comparable by colour, and would give OAC a branded feel, bringing it in line with other commercial classifications.
As such, we have tabulated a colour set that was designed by Martin Callingham, and is currently in use by the people at localfutures. We recommend you use it, although of course you are not required to.
The colour specifications, in RGB, HSV, Hex and CMYK are available in the attached excel file, inputting these values will allow you to visualise OAC in a uniform way. We will look to harmonise all our future releases in line with these colours.
