Adding branding (colors & fonts) to your account

Qwilr's brand editor lets you add your own set of brand colors and fonts, which will apply to all your team's pages.

In this article we'll cover account-wide branding. If you want to modify the style of an individual block or Qwilr Page, check out our styling tools.

Note: These settings are only available to account admins.

To set up your brand colors and fonts, head to the top right corner of the Qwilr dashboard. Click on your initials and choose Brand Setup.

Brand colors

The colors you select in Brand Setup will apply to all pages in your account. You can have up to 7 brand colors.

How brand colors apply to text

You can place your brand colors anywhere in a page, but the first two colors you set will show up as the default colors for specific elements. If there are colors you use a lot in your company collateral, setting these first can save you a lot of time.

First brand color in your set is the default for:

  • Headings (H1)
  • Links

Second brand color in your set is the default for:

  • Subheadings (H2)

To change any of your brand colors, click on a circle to bring up the edit menu.

Clicking a brand color to edit it

Choose a color from the menu or paste in your own hex color code. Then click Update Color.

When you're done adjusting colors, click  Update Brand to save the changes.

Using your brand colors

Anywhere you see the paint roller icon, that's a spot where you can use your brand colors. Click on it to bring up the menu. Depending on the case, Qwilr will add black, white, and silver to the color menu.

Note: There may be cases where Qwilr limits the selection of available brand colors in a block. This will only happen when a particular color would affect readability.

Note: In addition to your 7 brand colors, you can also add any hex color code to a block as a custom background color.

Brand fonts

You'll choose a set of 3 fonts, and these will apply to all pages in your account:

  • Heading (H1) font
  • Subheading (H2) font
  • Body text font

To change any of these fonts, click the Change button.

You'll have three options:

Note: Adobe (Typekit) fonts are available on all plans. Custom fonts are available on our Enterprise plan.

Using a single brand font

Once you've selected a brand font for H1, you can set it as the font for all text.  Enable the switch as shown below.

When you're done setting fonts, click  Update Brand to save the changes.

That's it! Your branding is now set up, and all your pages will have a consistent look that matches your brand style.
