Brand & Logo Design

 

People will typically associate colors with feelings and personality traits, but the color selection is also one of the most crucial aspects of brand design. Design colors must be consistent with the way you wish your consumers to view your brand.

 

“Research provided by Colorcom showed that it takes only 90 seconds for people to make a subconscious decision about a product and between 62% and 90% of that assessment is based on color alone.”
 

Now, there are no specific rules about what colors mean for your brand and if you should or should not use these colors in your design process, but there are guidelines that will help you better understand what your buyer’s perception will be.
