How Do Colours Impact Your Audience?
What is 50% of your business design? Colour is a fundamental part of your brand, from your logo to your website and user experience. It affects the way people consider your brand without them even realising, and has been used by the majority of businesses to build their image inline with their values.
Let’s have a look at the impact of each colour, and the brands which use them:
Red is the universal symbol of passion, excitement and playfulness, and is a very popular colour in branding. It holds attention and drives a powerful statement. Brands which use red almost exclusively in their logos are:

This warm colour is ideal for brands who want to be seen as friendly and supportive. It’s a symbol of clarity and transparency with the user, which can also blend with affordability. Brands which use yellow extensively in their identity include:

How each colour works with a brand, can influence your choice of theme, whether for an event design or permanent interior or exterior installation. Blending the right colours in the correct proportions can influence the type of experience your visitors have, and will impact how they feel about your brand. It is no coincidence that one of our most popular event themes is the Jungle, which promotes widespread green colour to help connect visitors to the event and exhibit the harmony felt within such an event, and into which can easily be incorporated accents of red, yellow and other warm and energetic shades in the form of flowers and neon lights.
We have themes which lead with all colours, which can be adapted to fit your ideal brand experience perfectly. New tones and hues can be incorporated in the form of new decor or lighting, to fully realise your brand identity.
