Notes on the Colors

  • Started with the Credly Badge Builder to create badges with appropriate colors. The Badge Builder will collapse Hex values into what it wants to display (bummer), so I found it better to generate the badge, and then read the resulting image to find out what color it displays.
  • This required more than one iteration because sometimes, "picking up the color" would not produce the fill color requested when put back into the badge. This leads to a value that you enter into Credly to get the desired color, and then a separate color that is what actually comes out for that Badge. (Ugh.)
  • After choosing a badge using the Credly Builder, the image will be loaded into BadgeOS's Media Library. From there, the file can be linked to other sites or downloaded for opening in an image tool to read it's color value.
  • The images below carry the reference colors (but not necessarily the correct icons).

Banner Color is a navy blue: #2A00B3 H: 254 S: 100 V: 70
