  9. 9. SUMMARYEat Street’s current sign color palette (orange, green, & blue) does notreflect the vibe of the area, especially in the winter season. A paletteof light orange, burgundy, dark blue, and bright orange speaks a morecultural message that is more representative of the Eat Street area andbusinesses.The benches I designed use the color palette of the surroundingarchitecture. Eat Street does not presently have any thoughtfullydesigned benches, and I believe the colorful benches would bring afriendlier feeling to the neighborhood. The Red Chokeberry is an urbanplant which buds all year round. I believe having urban plants on theside of the benches would bring cheer to the dreary Minnesota winter.Using Koboyashi’s The Colorist to decipher color connotations wasa good learning experience. The messages color sends can seemsubjective, but his process makes sense, and I can imagine using it infuture projects.
