  2. Definitely interesting approach. I’m thinking of ways to bring this approaching into a style guide.

  3. Thank you Justin - this is a very useful way to think about color.

    When designing, we often use transparent layers of color on top of each other to come up with a starter palette of mixes, as well as their tints and shades. Doing the same thing in the browser feels like a logical next step, and would allow for better communication between designers and developers, when they don’t happen to be the same person.

  4. Great article, thanks!

    I’ve found myself using mix recently where I would have previously (and unnecessarily) using rgba or opacity (or colour picking from a psd). A much better approach especially if your mix colours are variables, eg

    background: mix($c-background, black, 40%);

  5. Mix is a really cool use of manipulating color. I’m actually doing it at the palette level, as explained here:
