Hey everyone! I’m going to provide a monthly update to cover the main things have happened at Patreon and are coming up. I’ve heard feedback from creators that it’s tricky having so many places to check for news from us; this way you only have one thread to come and check Let me know if you have any other thoughts or suggestions.
Here we go!
1. Pick your own colors for your Patreon page
Meet the creator brand color - a new way for you to customize your page! You can choose a custom color in your page editor and it will be applied to certain elements on your creator page like the “Become a patron” button and the “Join Tier” button. It will also be added to certain elements throughout the pledge flow for patrons. Keep in mind that the color must be within 3.5 WCAG recommendations for accessibility reasons, so if you choose a light color you will be prompted to pick a darker one.
