Create Custom Theme Colors


All of our amazing templates come with a wonderful pre-designed color scheme. For Business and Enterprise users, you can create your own Theme colors in the My Brand area and create Theme colors which allow  you to adapt a Visme templates color scheme with one click of a button!

In the Dashboard, navigate to the left sidebar and select My Brand.

Select Styles from the My Brand menu. This screen shows your previously created Theme Colors, as well as an example of how these colors will look in context on the Canvas of your Project (Headings, Titles, Graphics, etc.)

To create a new custom Theme Color, select any of the color icons listed to edit the individual colors. You can select a hue from the color wheel, the gradient sliders, the opacity slider, as well as enter a custom hex value for your color.

Note: Color choices are incredibly impactful in design. There are many great resources out there to help you choose the perfect colors for your brand themes, including:

  1. Visme article resources: Why Colors Matter, How Colors Affect Marketing and Psychology, Choosing the Perfect Color Scheme, Color Theory For Presentations, and How To Pair Colors
  2.  Visme’s FREE Course for Making Memorable Presentations – specifically Chapter 5, “Choosing the Perfect Colors”

When finished selecting your colors, click + New Theme Color to add your Theme Color to the list of swatches below.

Brand Assets provides another way you can create Theme Colors, as well as setting your Primary and/or Secondary Colors for your brand. These colors will appear in the color palette window of any object you edit for easy access.

Add your colors by clicking on the Plus button first, then selecting a hue or entering a custom hex value. When finished, save these colors to a theme by clicking Create Theme Color.

Additionally, you can click +Have Secondary Brand Colors? (or + ADD COLORS if you’ve already created a secondary set of colors) to create another swatch of colors for easy access. You can set any swatch as Primary or Secondary colors by clicking the checkmark, and also rename the swatches to anything you like.

Using your Theme Colors

To access your Theme Colors in the Editor window, open your Project from the Dashboard, navigate to the left sidebar, and select Theme Colors. The default color scheme for the template will remain accessible at the top, your brand’s Theme Colors will appear below.

When you select a theme color, notice how all of the objects on the project adjust to the theme in one second!

If an object doesn’t have the right color, you can edit it by selecting the object individually on the design and clicking the Color tile at the top left. The menu lists your Recently Used colors, you brand’s Primary and Secondary colors, and Theme Colors, in order.

To return your project to the default theme, select Theme Colors from the left sidebar and click Default.
