    Pros: 

    Simple, easy to use, handy.

    Cons: 

    Some UX considerations (see below).

    I love single-purpose minimalistic apps like this!

    However, I'm having some issues:

    - When opening at login, it displays the main window.

    - Can't drag and drop assets into "choose file" dialogs.

    Unfortunately that last one is a deal breaker for me since I mostly use my assets in the browser :/

    Pros: 

    Fast, easy, looks great!

    Cons: 

    Not great on team management (yet)

    I loved how fast I could set up the brand and share it with the team.

Looks great, being as this is based on the Electron platform, are there plans to release it on other platforms?

Very simple and elegant, and always a good resource to have these assets digitally and not stored away in some PowerPoint or PDF. Nice work!

@justinotherjohnson Thank you, Justin! Yeah, looking for assets is no fun :) Cheers!

@justinotherjohnson I just implemented eps file support in the logo section if that helps :)

Justin JohnsonPro@justinotherjohnson · I've got a few things going on...
@nichlaswa Absolutely, I imagine folks would want EPS, SVG and some of the traditional static formats like progressive JPEG Files and PNGs with transparency.

@justinotherjohnson yeah, that's what I'm thinking. It supports all those formats now, so I'll leave it at that while I improve other parts of the app. You'll get a notification about the update next time you launch the app :) Todays changelog: - Support for EPS files in logo section 🎉 - Drag and drop field now works for logo and typography sections - Copy gradient colors by clicking the hex values - esc hotkey for edit mode now works as expected - bigger clickable area in brand list - When adding new colors or gradients, it now longer matters if you do it with a # in front or not - Made the start on login visible in dark mode 🕶🙈 And a lot of smaller improvements throughout the app!

This is really, really, really cool. 👍 I use another menubar color palette organizer but constantly have to bounce around through files to find logos and typefaces for all different clients and projects so this is a super helpful tool.

@thecontentcanvas That's fantastic! I would love to get your feedback once you've tested it. If you could message me/@ me on twitter that would be great. Also, regarding logos, I'm working on eps and pdf support, it got a bit delayed unfortunately - but you can upload SVG files for now if that works for you.
