If you’re using Illustrator to create a logo or other graphic design project, you’ll likely need to know the color code for various colors. In this article, we’ll walk you through how to find the color code for various colors in Illustrator.
To get started, open Illustrator and create a new document. Input a text or create a shape in your canvas for demonstration purposes then select it using the “Selection tool” from the toolbar.
In the toolbar at the top, click the “Window” menu and then select “Color.”
In the Color Picker window, click on the three dashes icon at the top-right corner of the window, then select the “RGB” color mode. This is the color mode where you can find the color code section.
You can find here a color palette. Click anywhere on this palette and the color code for that specific color you picked will be shown in the color code section with the symbol “#” beside it.
Finally, to save the color code for the color you’ve just entered, click on the three dashes button at the upper-right corner of the window and then select the “Create New Swatch” option.
