Cube – the ‘must-have’ device for creative professionals


We are pleased to announced the UK launch of Cube, by Palette. The ideal tool for creative professionals, Cube is an incredibly accurate colour capture device that makes it easy to record raw colour data with a simple tap.

Cube removes the guesswork from colour matching, seamlessly pairing with smartphones and desktops to save, store, and work with surrounding, real-world colour. Using an internal spherical light source, Cube picks up the desired hue in a controlled sequence and records the raw colour values for future reference.

With industry first functionality, Cube Link allows users to seamlessly import real-world colour directly into Photoshop.

“Cube was built to make colour digital. By taking the complexity out of colour capture and matching, Cube allows creative professionals to focus on what they’re best at – creating,” says Palette Co-Founder Paul Peng.

From colourful graffiti on the side of a building, to a beautiful flower that catches your eye, Cube can turn a brief moment of colour inspiration into the beginning of a new creative project.

Key features:

  • Highly accurate – Cube uses a controlled light sequence through an aperture to identify and capture colour accurately
  • Seamless pairing – Bluetooth connects automatically. No settings menus or confusing pairing rituals. Just open the Cube Companion App and turn Cube on
  • Instant matching – On either PC or Mac, use the Cube Link App to import colours directly to Photoshop and match to multiple colour libraries, including Pantone.
  • Colour, Your Way – Cube can output colours in RGB, CMYK, HEX, Lab, and LRV colour spaces, with support for multiple colour profiles.

The Cube team will be at 100% Design in London on 23 – 26 September 2015 to demonstrate the creative tools innovative features. You can visit the team at Stand L114 to get expert tips and advice on how best to get the most out of your Cube.
