Slightly redefining the palette #1195
I'd like to redefine the colour palette, just a little bit. Basically adjusting the hues of the green and brown and then adding other colours for more flexibility.

Basically, more vibrant colours and more choices.
Luckily the way our CSS is done, we can achieve that relatively easily.
These are the values our visual design needs to communicate, and in that context I think it's appropriate for the color scheme to be somewhat calmer than, say, Avaaz. That said, I do think we should add one or two more colors, to be used sparingly for emphasis.
I propose that we keep the existing grey/green/brown, and add an additional color or two, e.g.:
I like this new one I just composed: http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/2955419/Cheerful_tip
Also updated the project over here: https://layervault.com/gittip/Widget
I think things would feel stable(?) if we stuck to shades of the teal and brown hues (predominantly).
Getting a second neutral to work well with brown is tricky. And might force you to keep them less saturated than it seems like we are headed.
Design Seeds bases palettes on photos. We might do well at finding something that includes the grey and brown using nature-- with some tweaking of course.
