A Certain Shade of Green


Apple Music is on the verge of being released (as of this writing) which truthfully seemed disinteresting to me up until a few weeks ago. I’m a happy Spotify subscriber and yes, that does mean I pay for it. And honestly I love it. It’s a great service with easy, integrated functionality that has made my transition away from ownership deadly simple.

Yet here I am ready to cancel my Spotify subscription on Tuesday morning.

Why?

This.

Do you see what I see?

If you don’t. Let me explain.

Twoish (that’s a word in my vocabulary) weeks ago I was happily being myself which doesn’t account for much. Going through the daily motions of my rather mundane life when I got an update for Spotify. “No worries” I thought to myself. After all, apps get updated all the time, it’s a part of the digital world we live in.

But that change in the logos color.

Two weeks later and it still makes my eyes want to vomit. Seriously, who was the moron who thought that that specific shade of green would be a good idea? Of all things too!

Like. Hold on. Let me fire up Photoshop.

So I found out that the name for this shade of green is “1ed760”. And while I was in Photoshop I decided that maybe I’d like to see a different shade of green. Browsing I came upon this green, 2bd71e.

And this is the result.

Personally I like it better.

Maybe if Spotify had any sense in color I wouldn’t be canceling my subscription for something less ugly.

Still Ugly
