Week 2

Most of week 2 had a lot to do with color.

  • The color green for example has many associations like heaven in Muslim culture and luck in Ireland. The green fertility god from celtic myth evolved down to the green m&m being sexy.
  • Red is the color of passion, it raises blood pressure and your adrenaline.
  • The color orange makes people happy and is not seen often so it is used for items that keep us safe.
  • Yellow is highly visible and used for anything that wants your attention.
  • Blue can be calming or it can show trouble ahead, it all depends on the shade of blue.
  • The color purple is also a color not used much and for that reason it a great color for power. 
  • White in the western world is the idea of clean and purity but in chinese culture it is the color of death.
  • Black is the color of evil and death which gives it a sense of power.
