Nix for:

Graphic arts

Everyone can spot Ferrari red, Home Depot orange, Pepsi blue and many other countless brand colors. In an increasingly digital world, it has never been easier to scan a surface or object in real life to find its digital color codes. Nix has created a real life equivalent to the photoshop eyedropper tool. A must for any detail oriented professional or enthusiast in the digital design field.

A powerful tool for everyone

Graphic designers

Quickly get the exact digital color codes from any object or surface, and use them in your digital designs. Ensure brand consistency from the digital world to your prints.

Digital artists

Scan colors from the real world and implement them into your illustrations. Compare your prints to your digital work and take inspiration from the world around you.


Use a Nix device to compare colors from the real world to colors in a photo for a true to life representation in the editing process (perfect for product photography).


Survey potential shoot locations for optimal color matching and styling. Match costumes, furniture, and other textiles to achieve a unified cinematic experience.

Use with your existing software

Bring your scans into your favorite software workflow. With digital values available in multiple formats, you’ll be able to work with whichever color system works best for you. Available color systems include: CIELAB, RGB, CMYK, HEX, LCH(ab), and CIEXYZ.

The Nix Toolkit app is also capable of scanning and matching to industry standard color libraries. Take the guesswork out of matching by eye and simply scan and find the closest match using your Nix color sensor device. Available libraries for subscription include RAL, Pantone® FHI, Pantone® PMS, and NCS. Learn more about our premium database options here.
