Graphic Designing - Psychology of Colors TheTemplateWizard

Colors speak volumes and your going through this content confirms that you are aware of the emotive power of color. Colors are capable of communicating meaning, triggering emotional associations, eliciting evocative memories buried in our subconscious minds. Colors can persuade or dissuade according to your efforts.

Stanford Web Credibility Research in one of its publications mentioned that about 46% people determine the worth of a website on the basis of its overall visual appeal! Suggestive, isn’t it!

Properties of Color • Hue : Hue simply means name for the color. It helps assign a certain color to a main hue • Value : Value is nothing but the relative degree of lightness and darkness of a given hue. • Intensity or Saturation- purity and brightness

Do you feel anxious in a red room? Does the color purple make you feel calm and assured? Graphic design artists and interior designers have long understood the amazing effect of colors and how they can dramatically affect moods, feelings, and emotions. Color is a powerful communication tool and can be used to trigger action, influence mood and cause physiological reactions.
