Does Red Make You Mad?
Did you know colors bring out different emotions? Different colors create a different reaction from our subconscious. We use colors to get the message across on the signs in order to grab attention. The attention we desire begins at the subconscious level of our brain and the conscious part takes over to make sense of why we feel the emotion of the moment. In order to market anything the first concern is to grab the publics attention. Of course the colors are the beginning of the design process. So which colors do we use and how?
First we must know which colors invoke which emotions. Here is a look at the colors and the emotions involved.
Red: Color of Fire and Blood. Associated with energy, anger, danger, power, determination.
Orange: Mixes the energy of red with the mellow feel of yellow. Creates a feel of joy, sunshine, and the tropics. It also represents enthusiasm, fascination, creativity, success, and stimulation.
Yellow: Sunshine, joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.
Green: Color of nature. It invokes the thought of growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.
Blue: Sky and sea. Depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, and confidence.
Purple: Combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple also is associated with royalty. (Power, nobility, luxury)
White: Light, goodness, innocence, cleanliness and virginity. It is considered the color of perfection.
Black: Black is associated with power, elegance, formality. Yet it also represents the dark side, evil, and mystery.
As sign designers, we take all this into consideration along with the desires of the client to convey the message the client wants to portray to the public. Our intent is to catch the emotion of the subconscious first and let the public's conscious thought take over to understand the message we want to get across.
