Color

Color is a fundamental element of visual grammar and is a very incisive tool of cominctive immediacy.

The human perceptual system tends to associate each color with certain moods and sensations that act in the observer at an unconscious level.

  • Red: energy – strength – excitement – stimulation – strengthening
  • Yellow: carefree – generosity – liberation – detachment
  • Orange: relaxation – relief – pleasure – joy
  • Green: safety – satisfaction – protection – relaxation – balance
  • Blue: introspection – gathering – seriousness – peace – privacy – perseverance
  • Violet: tension – melancholy – renunciation – restlessness – dissatisfaction
