I have been unable to access email on my Outlook today so was going through some notes I have saved to use on my blogs and here's something interesting I found:
It's a list of colors and the causes that have adopted them:
Pink -Breast cancer Awareness
White – holocaust remembrance, peace
Yellow – support our troops
Black – Pow/mia
Red – HIV/Aids – American Heart Association
Burgandy – hospice care
Green – environmental protection
Lavender – caregiver appreciation
Red white, and blue – national support
Rainbow – gay pride
Light blue – pro-choice
And it got me thinking about colors and marketing. What the colors mean is just as important as what they represent.
Color Wheel Pro has an excellent explanation of the meaning of colors.
There are also numerous studies about color and the affects they have on us. Check out Color Matters for some very interesting insights about men, women and colors.
