Our modern and unified color palette builds brand equity while solving for accessibility, inclusion, and iteration within product and marketing experiences. The primary QuickBooks brand color palette and proportion are shown below.

Guiding principles


Use color as a guide for the eye. Color isn’t just there to look pretty—it’s there to attract the eyes to the most important parts of a design.


When designing for digital or print, consider color contrast and accessibility. Don’t let poor color choices stand between your design’s message and a good user experience.

Colors have meaning

Colors have assigned roles, which hold a specific meaning based on how they function within the interface. Defined color roles make things easy to modify and customize later. They also have the same meaning across the color system to convey specific messages or feelings throughout all QuickBooks products.

Color palette

Within the full QuickBooks color palette (shown below), there’s also a primary palette with specific proportion (shown above). When using color for marketing materials, use the primary color palette. The full color palette is reserved for illustrations, and should not be used for general marketing materials.
