Take a minute to picture a tree in autumn. You’re likely envisioning colors such as red, orange, green, purple, and yellow. But, what do colors have to do with your company? EVERYTHING. Your brand is comprised of your mission and vision statements, value propositions, logo, and even the color palette you choose. Let’s take a minute to talk about your color palette, as this element can either make or break your brand.
Choosing Your Color Palette
Your color palette further defines who your company is. You’ll use your brand colors in your logo, on print materials, and on your website. When you choose what colors to use, you should consider what message you want to convey to your target audience. For example, the words in parenthesis are the common color associations in Western culture:
- Black: (fear, secrecy, death, luxury)
- Blue: (tranquility, peaceful, reliable)
- Green: (health, power, tranquility, nature)
- Grey: (sophisticated, neutrality, uncommitted)
- Orange & yellow: (creativity, invigoration, unique, energy)
- Purple: (beauty, wisdom, respect)
- Red: (urgency, excitement, passion)
- White: (perfection, purity, wedding, clean, virtue)
We suggest limiting your selection of colors to three, as you don’t want to overwhelm your audience.
