Your brand colors can draw customers in or turn them away. So finding the right hues for your logo or promotional products is crucial to your bottom line.
How colors influence and impact people is a science that’s been studied since the 1600s. Our reactions to certain colors are often linked to our experiences and culture. It can be subjective; not everyone agrees that blue signifies loyalty or that pink promotes kindness.
But color psychology is real. It’s a known fact that warm colors like red and cold tones like blue evoke emotions, behavior and mood. That’s why it’s important to use a color psychology chart in your marketing strategy.
