The colors of your brand can reveal a lot about your business, as the psychology of color can invoke specific emotions that help establish trust and familiarity. Major brands with strong brand recognition often have a close association with their logos, and their colors typically reflect their branding, even without any accompanying text.

This is because colors hold significant power in terms of increasing brand recognition by eliciting desired reactions. Research has shown that a customer’s purchasing decision is influenced by a product’s color by up to 60-80%. Therefore, choosing the right color is crucial as it can not only reinforce brand association but also potentially impact sales.

As a marketer, understanding how the psychology of color can communicate the right message to your target audience is critical. It’s essential to integrate your brand’s colors across all touchpoints, including your website, landing pages, logo, products, and any other marketing materials. Strong branding can significantly increase the impact of the right use of colors, resulting in a positive impact on your business.

So let’s get into it,

What do your brand colours say about your business?


Red evokes a passionate and visceral response. It is a colour that increases your heart rate, makes your breath faster, and is generally associated with energy, excitement, and passion. It’s one of the colours that is attention-grabbing, while it can also be provocative and excitable.

Brown represents the earthly simplicity and it is usually preferred to reflect stability and strength. It’s comforting in its simplicity and is preferred by brands that want to be classical and trustworthy, without proceeding to bold moves. Brown is associated with the earth and can also remind people of dirt, so there needs to be a careful use of it, especially if it stands out as the main colour for a brand.
