Package for my Masters thesis colour scheme using ochRe

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc0068e5f08>

Hi everyone, I was asked to share this here. I used the ochRe package to slot my own colour palette in for my thesis plots.

What did you do?

I wanted to define a colour scheme to use throughout my Masters thesis. The scheme is also used for plots, diagrams and presentation slides, and is inspired by a French fashion brand called Jacquemus. I became sick of porting these palettes around different script files so I decided to make a package. I heard about ochRe when it was released and used it a couple of times, and liked how it was very simple and functional. I simply downloaded the ochRe script files and used them to make a package, only changing a few things. I made a qualitative palette, a diverging palette and three gradient palettes.
