How Would I Use It?
Usually, the Color Palette would be set up with the color label set to the same as the color itself. So, for example, if the color was blue the color label would also be set to "blue". Instead of limiting the Color Palette in this fashion, apply a color label that is appropriate for the component. For example, if you have a particular color you want to apply to the company name, apply a color label of "Company Name" and designate a color for the color label.

So your Color Palette should be set up as follows:

With a Color Palette set up in this fashion, you can apply the color label to the appropriate components and then adjust the color of the color label in the Color Palette and all of your components using that color label will be changed.

For example, if you changed the color of "Logo Text" from yellowish to grayish...

... any component that has a color label of "Logo Text" applied to it will have the color changed universally.
