“Reimagining our brand, we took a step back and identified our values,” explained Bitcoin.com Head Designer Andrew Todd. “With universal accessibility being our most important value, we set out to create a color palette that would not only resonate with people and help create a lasting identity, but would work seamlessly across devices and in different environments.”
