"success" greens in style guide are too blue
Open, LowestPublic


A green with more yellow looks more natural, and is far more common in other UI libraries

Hue 166°Hue 140°

I think a hue between 110° and 150° would be better (current hue is ~166°)

Note also that our blues and yellows have hues of ~210° and ~40° respectively so this would put the green closer to the midpoint between those (125°).

Some examples from other UI libraries:

Fortunately green is one of the less used colours from our styleguide, so there shouldn't be too many places to update.

@Esanders Are you specifically talking about Green90 or are you proposing shifting Green50 and Green30 accordingly? It's not completely clear from the current task description.

All the greens have a similar hue, so they should all be shifted.

From current description it's not clear, what the problem is. It's a color choice. Could you provide a clearer problem statement of why this choice is an issue?

Could you provide a clearer problem statement of why this choice is an issue?

It looks unnatural and jarring compared to what users expect of a success message.

This green would also be more distinct from our blues.
