The text python is not changing color to dark blue...

  • What is tightemize? Can you provide a complete Minimal working example (MWE), starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document} (including only relevant packages). – Troy Apr 19 '17 at 0:48

This template you are using assigns a specific color (called primary) to the main font. This cannot be overridden by \color. You have to redefine the main font without that color. This way you can also include a fix for the missing bold font.

\documentclass{deedy-resume-openfont}

\setmainfont[
  Path = fonts/lato/,
  UprightFont = *-Lig,
  BoldFont = *-Bol,
  %Color=primary,
]{Lato}

\definecolor{DARKBLUE}{RGB}{8, 94, 179} 

\begin{document}

\begin{tightemize}
\item Designed and developed a \textbf{\color{DARKBLUE}Python} based script to web scrape and index over \textbf{1.2 TB} of news, patent and market data. 
\end{tightemize}

\end{document}

Alternatively, if you want to keep the default color, you can add your color via \addfontfeatures.

\documentclass{deedy-resume-openfont}

\setmainfont[
  Path = fonts/lato/,
  UprightFont = *-Lig,
  BoldFont = *-Bol,
  Color=primary,
]{Lato}

\definecolor{DARKBLUE}{RGB}{8, 94, 179} 

\begin{document}

\begin{tightemize}
\item Designed and developed a \textbf{\addfontfeatures{Color=DARKBLUE}Python} based script to web scrape and index over \textbf{1.2 TB} of news, patent and market data. 
\end{tightemize}

\end{document}
