A Light Colour Theme for Beamer Poster

(Yes it’s been a while. I’ve started working and adapting to the new pace!)

Hence I started tinkering around with the colours, and finally settled on this light, subtle palette:

  1. @Ignasi, sure, here are the extra colour definitions for the greenish and reddish blocks:

    definecolor{k4}{HTML}{21304D}
    definecolor{DirtyGreen}{HTML}{CDDA70}
    definecolor{WinterSkin}{HTML}{EFE4CA}
    definecolor{Smak}{HTML}{790800}

    { % green title background + dark blue title text
    setbeamercolor{block title}{bg=DirtyGreen!40!white,fg=k4}
    begin{block}{…}

    end{block}
    }

    { % reddish background + text
    setbeamercolor{block title}{fg=Smak,bg=WinterSkin}
    setbeamercolor{block body}{bg=WinterSkin!40!SoSleepy!30}
    begin{block}

    end{block}
    }
