I am currently working on webproject and responsible for the design. I have a list , where I shall display the trackingstatus of each list-item. For each step I have 4 possible outcomes. I wanted to use the main colors, we have defined in our applicaiton. My current situation looks like this:

For me it's just too much colors, yet I need to display the informations with using them.

Any alternative solution, you guys can think of? Or how do I accomplish to make the colors look not too childish?

    Apart from the fact that the two greens are very similar, I don't see any problem with those colors.

Marking the status of a list-item is definetly best with using simplest possible solutions, colors are the best in my opinion for that.

As for the alternatives you can always go for some icons related to the current state of the particular item. There are many ready-to-use icons such as Flaticon or Freepik and many more if you use your search-engine extensively.

However, I would definetly go for the color option. As it will be the easiest to comprehend for the user.

  • Well we use font-awesome. However they have not that many logistics-icons. Jun 30, 2016 at 9:24
