The psychology of colour: Red

I’m continuing my recently started series on the psychology of colour with a trusty design staple we’re all getting slapped around with during this saccharine Valentine season. I am of course referring to the colour red.

This hot colour is associated with exotic tastes, passion, love and romance but also with danger and all that is forbidden. After all, one does not just run red lights willy-nilly. The use of red pigment can be traced all the way back to Ancient Egypt where it represented vitality and celebration, as well as evil and destruction. Scarlet is a tint of red traditionally worn by cardinals in the Catholic Church, symbolising the blood of Christ and Christian martyrs. Meanwhile, if you add some brown to red, you end up with maroon, a colour associated with Buddhism and therefor spirituality, wisdom and the sweater Mrs Weasly knits for Ron’s Christmas present every fekking year. In the Fortune 500, there’s a clear link between the food and retail industries and a red logo. Personally I’ve always loved the white Coca-Cola logo on it’s bright red background. For some reason the other colour schemes they use for some of the Coca-Cola variants don’t make me feel quite as thirsty.

After all that, I imagine some of you will now be quite thirsty for the credits, so without any further ado…
