Color Introduction

In this series of three posts, we’ll look at colours in R graphics produced with ggplot2: what are the available choices of colour schemes, and how to choose a colour palette most suitable for a particular graphic? In kindergarten, choosing a colour was easy, palettes were limited to a few classics. As cool kids grow older and use R, the spectrum expands to present us with overwhelming choice of millions of colours, most of them with poorly defined labels such as “#A848F2” or “lavenderblush3”. Inasmuch as scientific graphics resemble a paint-by-numbers game, R can help us design more elegant palettes with pertinent colour choices based on the data to display.

Typography Typeface Weights

// In traditional typography, a font is a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. //

// code light

// code bold


The problem with 960gs is the gutter space and content width. Minus the margin space, the actual content area is only 940px. It worked well back then because most designs are set at 12px font size.

The Grid System

For several years now the 960px grid system (960.gs) has been designers’ favorite pick to help structure and design web layouts. As screens and resolutions have gotten bigger, I’ve found that the 960 grid system does not always fit my needs. 20px gutters and only a 940px content area is a bit too small for the modern web. While designing Themify, I found a new grid layout that works quite well for designing in this day and age. If you’ve never heard of 960 I’ve detailed both it and this newer gird system below.

The grid that I use on Themify: 978px, 12 column @ 54px with 30px gutter space. I find it works quite well. It is still optimized for the 1024 x 768 display. I took out the left and right margins to maximize the content
