THE LESS TALKED ABOUT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BRANDING AND COLOURS


One of the most thrilling things about movies and television series is the emergence of love interests among the characters. Fans of these movies and tv series automatically turn the duo into a headline.

They are often talked about on every space and suddenly everyone turns to some kind of sailor with a chant of "Ship them" falling in very angle. 

Relationships are beautiful to watch as they blossom. While some of us like to raise our's like flag and some like to keep it on the low.  The good thing remains that you are living, loving and laughing. 

One relationship that is not often talked about remains the one existying between your brand and colours. Most people have a general idea of the effect colours can have on you. 

You might have heard that a kitchen should never have too much blue decor because blue ruins your appetite. You have probably also heard that red can raise your heart pressure. In all actuality, there is truth behind these ideas. Colour can have a large impact on they way we react to certain situations. 

Colour can be used to give your audience the subconscious feeling you desire them to have, so decide on this first before choosing your brand colours.  An understanding of colour psychology can help give your brand an edge over the competition.

Remember, that these are the colours we see when we see your logo, we get handed your business cards, when we see your branded take-out bags and letter head papers. 

Be smart about your choice of colours;

Blue 

A popular color whenever you want to make people think of security and serenity.

That makes blue a good choice for background and conversion elements on websites that deal with intrinsically scary things like finances, medicine, insurance or even your favourite Facebook.

Blue is the color to open the flow of communication and open your mind to learning new things. 

Black

The brands that use black to good effect are luxury or high-end brands, retailing to a mainly male audience. Rolls-Royce. Lamborghini. 

Check out any high-end luxury brand with a male-oriented clientele and you’re likely to see a lot of black. For instance, Rolls Royce.

Orange

Orange is a bright, bold color that doesn’t have red’s heart-palpitation urgency. Orange features heavily in many websites, where it’s used for calls to action and buy buttons. 

It stands out clearly against a lot of different backgrounds, and some of its success may be down to the fact that it’s a comparatively rare brand colour so an orange button is often the only orange thing on the page.


Red

Red triggers action. If you’ve already primed someone to buy with great design (that isn’t all bright red), and solid copy, then your red ‘buy now’ buttons can work great.

  • Choose colors through the lens of your customer, and those that reflect your company’s brand, industry and product or service.
  • Leverage color combinations to enhance their impact. A color like grey which doesn’t make a significant statement could be paired with a more energizing or relaxing color.
  • Be cognizant of how colors are interpreted in different cultures, particularly if you have an international customer base or sell your products/services abroad.
  • Don’t choose colors based on your own preferences. Your favorite color may not be sending the right message.
  • To maximize your opportunity to stand out, avoid choosing colors that are too similar to your competitors.

Have fun! explore and study more colours that will portray your brand's mesage effectively.

WHY I WON'T BE BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN FOR A LIFETIME

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…

CHIOMA VANESSA : A FASHIONPRENEUR MOTIVATED BY PASSION AND CREATIVITY TO CHART A PATHWAY

Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 
"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 


"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues.
