In the magical world of design, colors play a very important role. When creating a brand guide for your business, it's essential to pick the right colors early on. Understanding the psychological effects of colors is a great starting point.
Color plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live. Color can sway thinking, change actions, and cause reactions. It can irritate or soothe your eyes, raise your blood pressure or suppress your appetite. When used in the right ways, color can even save on energy consumption.
Colour is part of everyday life. It will affect all of the senses, sight, touch, taste and even hearing. It can be emotional, exciting, stimulating, calming, soothing. Colour arouses many feelings and memories, good and bad, it can make us happy and sad. It is so much part of our daily life, that often we dont see it.
