Color has a huge impact on our emotions, our perceptions, and our spiritual and physical well being. When choosing colors for your brand, color that will represent you, your business, and your message, are you choosing the right colors? Understanding the meaning behind color is important. When you understand the meaning and power a color holds you can leverage that to help you better communicate your message and connect with your clients and customers.
That is exactly why I am doing the Color Meaning Blog Series, detailing the meanings associated with colors such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, grey, black, white, brown, pink, turquoise, gold, silver, and beige.
