The Psychology of Color and How it Applies To Branding



Researchers have found that up to 90% of snap judgments made about products can be based on color alone, depending on the product. There is no arguing that, consciously or subconsciously, colors have a very powerful effect on the human brain. The emotions they draw are diverse, all-inclusive, and should remind us of how bland this world would be without them. Although colors have a wide array of emotional effects on people based on different variances, color psychology studies have found that there are some common associations and perceptions the vast majority shares. For this reason, color psychology and branding remain in a long-lasting committed relationship. Once you understand the importance of the two together, you'll be able to begin to truly architect reality by influencing and shaping consumer perception.
