Structured, Routine | brown
Diligent | blue

After reviewing the connotations that should be represented in my color choices for my story, Taylor and I listed the connotations from the colors I had previously selected. From here, I realized that my all but 5 of my color choices were almost the opposite of what they should be to accurately represent my story. From this point, I need to create a completely new palette that is vibrant and cheerful.

New Color Palette

The new color choices (shown left) have a better quality overall and more accurately represent the idea of my story. However, I feel that the way I have combined them within the icons still needs improvement. From these palettes, I need to select a more mature color combination to represent the character of my story.
