Colors. A Key Element in Your Brand. – Written for tba | PR + Advertising

Colors evoke emotions and feelings.

What influence they have on a consumer is not always easy to determine without keeping in mind demographics and your product or service’s messages.

According to a marketing study from the University of Loyola, Maryland, color increases brand recognition by 80 percent! When developing brand identities for our clients, we always evaluate the use of color knowing how important it is in the success of a brand and its identification in a crowded marketplace.

As a reference, I have indicated basic color meanings below. Note, these are not rigid rules, just general associations to keep in mind:

Blue = depth, stability, trust, masculine, tranquility, security

Red = intensity, energy, war, danger, love, passion, strength, energetic, urgency

Purple = soothing, calming, royalty, power, nobility, wealth, ambition, dignified, mystery

Yellow = optimistic, youthful, joyful, intellectual, energetic, cheerful

Green = nature, growth, fertility, fresh, healing, safe, wealthy, relaxation

Orange = aggressive, warmth, stimulation, enthusiasm, happiness, success, creativity

Pink = romantic, feminine, idealistic

Black = powerful, sleek, intimidating
