Make Premiere, Audition, and AE icons different colors again
Until this recent update, it was very easy to look at a file and know if it's a Premiere, Audition, or AE File because the icons were different colors. Now that they're all purple, it's a lot harder to tell what type of file I'm looking at, especially if it's a small icon. There also seems to be no benefit to the average user for this change. Please change icons back to their previous colors or any other colors that aren't exactly the same.

The most recent June CC update that changed all the program icons is absolutely unacceptable. Recoloring slightly to group programs together is fine, but changing Premiere, After Effects, Character Animator, AME, etc to all the same purple is EXTREMELY unintuitve and awful, workflow-interrupting design. PLEASE change back to their unique colors!

I'm all in for the change in design, but we still need a clear visual way of dinstiguishing the different softwares.
It doesn't even need to be the old colors, but different colors for the softwares that are commonly used together (Media Encoder / Premiere Pro / After Effects / Audition being the most commonly used for editors) seems really useful.
Please change the colors for the softwares that are commonly used together.

Change the icon colors back to what they were before. The new colors are confusing and make my desktop toolbar on PC and MAC look boring. For a company that makes software specifically for creatives, this is the worst, non-creative, and most frustrating design choice they could have made.

Wow, I noticed this too... I'm glad i'm not the only one.
I understand how a redesign in the icons was necessary, but changing the colors is really confusing.
Specially for people who needs to work at really fast paces...
hope they pay attention.

The new Premiere pro is so ugly, you should change them back, a huge company like this brings a new update and many of the new icons have the same colors, and its just text in a rectangle, instead of more detail like before, its a shame and it literally hurts my eyes looking at them.
