That's a very nice palette.  It's rare to find a palette where a cool color dominates and comes to the foreground.

 

One question I have is about the 2 percent yellow in the indigo.  To me, that's usually an indication of a formula derived by software from another colorspace, either RGB or Pantone.  But the other colors have nice round-numbered formulas.  Do you really find a 2 percent dot visible, and necessary?

 

Also, what are the uses of the two very similar greens?  I wonder if readers can distinguish them?

Hi Dennis and thanks for your positive feedback,

Always good to hear from others to encourage and motivate direction.

Let 2% read 20%, thanks. I use this CMYK for framing.

The original format of the map is 2.5 metres onboard ship signage, so the green textures are evident. I agree with you for smaller formats like the example below, only one choice of green would be relevant.

I wish you a pleasant and stimulating weekend.

Best wishes,
Kevin-Paul
