Hi Bernhard, all,

Could you provide better color tones for the lighter greens (and others?).
Even if it would be possible to change them later too, the sooner the better
for everybody using these colors for her/his artwork and design.

I have uploaded a second (high resolution) draft showing a possible
color scheme [1]. The current LibreOffice green is the same. My
suggestion is to have one 'off' color for each set to add some flavor.
So, for green, there's lime, for blue it's something light headed
toward aqua, for maroon it's pink... whether it works or not is for
you all to decide :)


The Impress mimetype symbol needs consideration (you had a rounded
rectangle), as well as what to with detail when the icons get larger
(more detail would be nice, and that's the case with the new OOo
mimetype icons... but I don't have the time to work on it now). The
symbols are an important part in the icon design and probably another
discussion in themselves.

and since the colors at [1] already correspond to
application colors: blue for writer, green for calc, etc, it'd be nice
to get that continuity in the color pallet (though that might make
people think that Calc is the main program in the office suite :P).

That has been the main reason to propose to add the Yellow (now included in
the color table). I think LibreYellow1 is too brownish and therefore too
near to LibreMarron1, that's why I used LibreYellow2 as Draw color.

BTW: I don't think that having one sub-application in the main color is a
real problem - having three different blue tones in OOo (logo color, main
icon and writer) caused some problems there...

I agree, I just thought it was interesting :)
