Power of Color
The most powerful tool in branding is COLOR. Color can transform a logo into the desired emotional experience for your target audience. It can attract your attention, or change your mood; it plays a major part on how we see or define things. Color has the power of persuasion. Use it wisely.
Studies have shown that the color of a product influences up to 80% of a customer’s purchasing decision. Color is the first thing a consumer will notice about your logo. So, choosing the wrong color could cost your company in the long run.

Our brains prefer recognizable brands, which makes color very important when creating a brand identity. Consumers’ reaction to color appropriateness in relation to the product is far more important than the individual color itself.
A color can have very different meanings — it’s not the colors themselves that have a meaning, but that we have culturally assigned meanings to them. Color choices are critically important for the success of a brand or product. Choose wisely.
