FORGOT TO MENTION IN THE VIDEO: Every color has a code. These codes are always a # sign followed by numbers. If you have brand colors that you use, you will want to just type the color code into this section under the color picker. Or if this is the first time you are choosing this color, you can copy the code and use it in other places.
