Color Schemes

What is Color Schemes?

Color is such an intrinsic part of our day-to-day experiences that it’s often easy to take it for granted. However, if you took the time to slow down and assess your emotional response to color, you might discover that certain shades affect your behavior more than you’d think.

The psychology of color can help your business establish trust and familiarity by eliciting the right emotions. It’s no surprise that the most popular brands in the world have a strong association with their logos. Their colors tend to reflect their branding, even when they don’t involve any text on them.

According to some studies, 87.3% of consumers say that “color” is their primary reason for buying a specific product. That means companies choosing their brand color palette have a big decision on their hands.

As a marketer, it is useful to explore how the psychology of colors can send the right message to your target audience. Your brand’s colors should be integrated across your site, your landing pages, your logo, your product, and any other collateral that you’re creating.

Here’s an overview of what differentiates each color and how your brand can pick the right mix of them.
