eLearning Layouts with the 2024 Pantone Color of the Year

The Pantone Color Institute has released their Color of the Year for 2024- it’s a color called Peach Fuzz:

Every year there’s an Articulate eLearning Heroes Challenge for the color of the year, so I thought I’d participate in the yearly color challenge for the first time. I decided to create eLearning layouts rather than a sample course so I could have more flexibility for fun.

A Challenge

Besides not being wildly crazy about the color in general, my main concern when using it was color contrast. For normal-sized text, there’s not enough contrast to use the peach color on a white background- it’s just too hard to see!

Therefore, I decided to make a variety of layouts and used the peach color mainly as an accent, using it as text only when the font size was very large (and/or as a shade of the color rather than the color itself).

The Result

The eLearning layouts are nice and clean. They’re tied into the theme colors so you can easily swap out the peach color for something different. I used free graphics by Leni Kauffman called Fresh Folk in the layouts.
