The Colour Code: What Your Brand Colour is Saying About Your Business [Infographic]By Stephanie Dozie on May 6, 2014

Color selection is one of the key elements of building a strong brand. How a brand is perceived relies heavily on it’s colours because the colour is the first thing a customer notices about your logo.

Different colors evoke different emotional responses in mind of the the beholder. Yellow makes us feel sunny, cheerful, warm; Black is more powerful and luxurious; Blue is cool and understanding; Purple makes us feel royal and Pink? Well, more girly and soft. Your brand colors say a lot about your business and it is vital to ask yourself, “What emotion do I want my logo to encourage when people see it?” before you pick out the color of your logo. You want your logo to communicate a certain message to potential customers, therefore it’s wise to pick your colours more strategically and systematically and less randomly.

2. What color represents the personality of your brand?

Tip: Incorporate your colours across the board – in your logo, website, product packages, etc for optimum effect
