Thank you for sharing that but too bad it doesn't really explain why they changed the Dreamweaver icon color so drastically. I suppose it isn't really that important but I do know the answer to one thing for sure. I now have to "evolve" my work habits to stop clicking new Dreamweaver icon when I really mean to open InDesign. At least imho, the new Dw Icon has more in common with the old Id icon than the new Id icon does. Maybe it's just the old saying in action: Variety is the spice of life? 😉

I guess Adobe's branding agency needed to justify their existence.  

 

New icons from the Adobe Support Community page.New icons from the Adobe Support Community page.

 

Personally, I don't care much for the new Adobe "warmer red."  I think it has all the subtlety of a 5 alarm fire.  And if you ask me, the new borderless icons look anemic and indistinguishable. 

 

The high contrast green on green that we all know & love has been assigned to Aero, Captivate, Captivate Prime,  Connect & Dimension.   What do those 6 products have in common?  No idea. 

 

Pink on burgundy is the new color scheme for Adobe XD, Muse and Dreamweaver. 

 

While Animate and Edge Animate are frequently used for web projects, they share colors with video products like Premier.  Why?  No idea.

 

So if you're looking for a cohesive explanation for the new color choices, I don't think there is one.  Draw your own conclusions.

I think your first statement warrants further investigation. It would have been entertaining to be a fly on the wall when the design team expained their color choices and the benefits that outweighed breaking some fundamental UX/UI design 101 rules. 😉

'It would have been entertaining to be a fly on the wall when the design team expained their color choices'

 

It's some bull•••••• in an agency getting one over on a 'wet behind the ears' Adobe employee, probably holds a pointless degree in marketing, of course, been in the job all of 30 seconds, whilst they should really be starting in the packing factory. Been there, seen it.....you get much wiser to corruption and verbal bilge as you get older. I just used to let them entertain me, then  politely show them the door.

I'm glad you asked this; I came to the forum today to make a similar comment. I think the pink is a terrible choice. It's far too close to the InDesign color (especially since, for some reason, my InDesign icon did not update to the latest one even though I updated the app).

The instructions I gave are for Windows 10.

I don't have a Mac anymore, but I have used these instructions in the past to change icons for MacOS programs...

Since you mentioned getting into the application package I made up two icon replacement files. Both use the old colors and new shape in multiple sizes however one version has the border like before and one doesn't. Quit Dreamweaver if it is open and remove the icon from you dock or any aliases you have created for the app. Open the Dreamweaver app package and navigate to the Resources folder within the Contents folder. Look for and replace the file named "Dreamweaver.icns" with one of the files from the download link below. You may want to save a backup copy of the original just in case.

 

Download the new icns files here. Look for the download icon in the upper right corner and click that to start the download. Hope this helps.
