|Color is powerful: it triggers emotions|
Harman discusses why color — or visual stimulation when done correctly — is so important when your objective is engaging an audience.
Color is powerful — because it triggers emotions.
Home builders, for example, want to take home shoppers on an emotional journey when they’re considering a home purchase. Correct color selection, in sales office design and marketing collateral, can do more than create a mood.
Consider developing a color strategy as a result of evaluating the message you want your audience to know. And, color strategy considerations get more involved than knowing there are cool and warm colors!
