Understanding Colour Psychology

Colour Psychology

Understanding colour psychology is essential if you want to improve brand awareness. Today, packaging is one of the most popular ways to market your brand and if you are using the right combination of colours then you can easily influence the buying decision of consumers. In the recent years, we have noticed that companies are giving more attention to product packaging. Companies are investing in packaging designs to make their product stand out. We relate different colours to different things and that’s why understanding the message a colour conveys is very important. For example green colour is often associated with the eco friendly products likewise blue colour is associate with tech industry. If we look at the logos of popular brands we will see that the colour selection is done as per the product or service they offer.

Packaging is very important to protect the products from any physical damage during transit. Packaging should be durable, eco friendly and attractive. Ecommerce industry is growing at a rapid pace and as we can see companies try different methods to influence the mind of buyers. Now, if we look at it closely we see that they are focusing more on product presentation. Customers can’t feel your product if they are buying online but to make them buy your product and to make them think what you want them to think can only be achieved through packaging. Simple packaging is not going to help you here. You need to be creative and if you know what colour will attract your customers; you can create a pleasurable buying experience.
