COLOR 101 - RED


My boyfriend always tells me that I am a marketers dream. I buy into EVERYTHING. When I see coupons, or signs like H&M's FINAL SALE, I immediately say OK time to shop! However one of my resolutions this year is to not spend much money, to save for big purchases in my future ... like a house!

Anyways ...

Red is the color that makes us all stop dead in our tracks. The color that is most commonly associated with red lights, stop signs, and retail signage. Some of the top brands out there, utilize this color to draw attention such as Target, Verizon, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, and H&M.

Red is an emotional color, commonly associated with love, bravery, success, and sometimes even anger. When red is associated with business it is often looked at as symbol of power. Just think about it... when you wear red how do you feel? Personally, it always makes me feel confident & successful, giving off the "I can do anything" attitude.

The color red is also most commonly associated with Valentines Day, Christmas, health, emergencies, love, evil, stability, aggressiveness, danger, and high energy. No matter how you look at it, it's a powerful color that always grabs attention.

What do you think of the color red? Love it? Hate it?
