Monero Integrations is an open source project started by Monero community member ‘serhack’ with the goal of making it easy for merchants to accept the Monero cryptocurrency on their ecommerce online shops. Digital stores use a variety of Content Management Systems (CMS) such as Woocommerce and Prestashop, and making plugins for easy installation is imperative for the adoption of Monero.
The goal of combining the new ideas of integration and accessibility with the existing branding of Monero was realized after looking at the project from a different angle. Rather than borrow Monero’s established color scheme, we opted to go with a novel palette, with cerulean blue color as the foundation. This was to take advantage of the color’s inherent calm and even electric features, to give a feel of the power of new technology made simple and easy.
Along the same vein, we opted to stray from the sharp corners and distinct sectioning of Monero’s logo in favor of a more fluid and connected look, signifying an easy flow of business and money from point A to point B.
