It is used logically throughout the departments to improve perceived affordance across complex applications and dashboards. 


UI Palette

You can also use a selection of UI colours to enrich your mockups or use it for specific features. This palette may be found in all brands and applications. The main UI colours are used for action buttons, alert messages, and form elements. Input fields, for example, may contain positive and negative feedback, whereas alert messages may provide feedback or warnings.
