That sounds awesome, I also like the hand/sharing idea. I'll see if I
can make something work! (If you already have something specific in
mind, feel free to grab the .svg and go to town!)

Good point. I was still looking for a kind of "warning" color.
Something to offset the blue is needed, because, well, otherwise it'll
turn into a TRON poster, as you can see here [1].

Now if you look for the complement of our blue-green buddy here,
you'll get purple. However, if you use the RYB color wheel instead of
RGB, you'll get something like this [2]. I realize "don't like the
resulting colors? change color wheel!" isn't exactly a scientific
process, but hey, if it works!

I tried those two out and I think they'd work well with error messages
and other urgent things. They're still muted enough to be used near
images, but can also grab attention when used in the right places. [3]
