How Do You Add a Color Library in Figma?

Adding a color library to Figma is a great way to ensure consistency across all your design projects. It can help you quickly access the exact colors you need for any project and streamline the design process. Plus, creating a color library in Figma is extremely simple and straightforward and can save you time and energy.

The first step in creating a color library in Figma is to open up the ‘Libraries’ panel. To do this, go to the top navigation bar and select ‘Libraries’ from the drop-down menu. Here, you will see all of your existing libraries. If this is the first time you have used this feature, there should be nothing listed.

To create a new library, click on the ‘+’ icon on the right side of the Libraries panel.

You will then be prompted to give your library a name and choose whether it will be shared with other users or kept private. Once you have done this, click ‘Create Library’.

Once your new library has been created, it’s time to start adding colors. To do this, click on the ‘+’ icon that appears beside your new library name in the Libraries panel. This will open up a window where you can choose which colors you would like to add.

You can add colors from existing projects or create custom swatches using either RGB or hex values. Once you have chosen which colors to include in your library, simply click ‘Add Colors’ and they will appear in your newly created color library.

Creating a color library in Figma is an easy way to ensure consistent colors across multiple projects while also simplifying design workflows. All that’s needed is an open Libraries panel, a new library name, and some colors of choice – either from existing projects or custom swatches created with RGB or Hex values – before clicking ‘Add Colors’ for them to appear in the newly created color library.
