Colors play a major role in how customers perceive and connect with a brand. They influence the purchase decision of a customer. Marketers understand the psychology of color before designing their brand or logo. Brand is a word that communicates the idea of a company, its products and offerings. An image is perceived much faster than a lot of words. This is where color and design of the brand plays a huge role.
Companies use their brand to send a message to their target market. For example, red and yellow are two colors that are known to stimulate appetite, and you can see many fast food brands using these colors to attract consumers.
On the other hand, blue is known to curb hunger, and is not used in many fast food brands. Blue is a color that builds a sense of trust. The major social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn all use blue as their brand color.
