❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💗Colour and our emotions 💗💜💙💚💛🧡❤️ What’s your favourite colour?🎨✨ Red is the warmest and most dynamic of the colors—it triggers opposing emotions. It is often associated with passion and love as well as anger and danger. It can increase a person’s heart rate and make them excited.
Orange enhances a feeling of vitality and happiness. Like red, it draws attention and shows movement but is not as overpowering. It is aggressive but balanced — it portrays energy yet can be inviting and friendly. -
Yellow is perhaps the most energetic of the warm colors. It is associated with laughter, hope and sunshine. Accents of yellow help give your design energy and will make the viewer feel optimistic and cheerful.
Green symbolizes health, new beginnings and wealth. Green is the easiest on the eyes and should be used to relax and create balance in a design. -
Blue evokes feelings of calmness and spirituality as well as security and trust. Seeing the color blue causes the body to create chemicals that are calming. It is no surprise that it’s the most favored of the colors. -
Purple is associated with mystery, creativity, royalty and wealth. Lighter shades of purple are often used to soothe or calm a viewer, hence why it is used in beauty products. -
Pink represents femininity and romance, sensitivity and tenderness. It’s inherently sweet, cute and charming.
Brown creates a sense of stability and support. It’s warm and friendly, practical and dependable, and can also represent the old fashioned and well established.
Black evokes power, luxury, elegance, professionalism and simplicity. It’s bold, powerful and a little mysterious.
White evokes purity and innocence and creates a minimalist aesthetic. It can be very simple, clean and modern.
It’s interesting to see what meanings can be hidden or evoked in our everyday lives and routine with colour. Think to yourself why companies target certain colours towards you! Think about why certain colours appeal to you and what they make you feel and why you might be connecting to those colours. ❤️
