    What do we call this new color palette that sites like this, Dropbox, and others such as https://www.emcap.com/ are using?

    They're kind of earthy and fleshy, and not very saturated.

    I'm still trying to decide if I like this color trend. It makes me think of paint?

      Good question, a name for this would be great. It's kind of like natural vs synthetic pigments, like they use in dyes. This palette is like the one you could make from organic materials, like when people would crush up bugs and stuff to create pigments.

        That is fascinating, although I'm not sure the designers will appreciate if I call their color palette the "crushed bug palette".

        I do like the idea of natural dyes. It's being used in relatively "flat"design but brings a much less digital feel to it.

        I call it "color blind"

        Although emcap does a much better job because their color pairings aren't all muddy.

        Diarrhea green background with piss yellow text isn't a good combination.

        It looks like you guys updated the colors in the hero section from the other day though, which looks much better.
