The Power of Colors on Workplace Harmony

  1. 1. THE POWER OF COLORS ON WORKPLACE HARMONY Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions. - Pablo Picasso - Color is a visual experience. Gender, age, culture and other biological factors affect how color influences individuals’ moods, behaviors and feelings. Color allows designers to summon specific sentiments that leave an emotional impact on each individual. RED Fire, passion, power, love, energy, anger, blood. The most physical color in the spectrum. Associated with the heart and blood, the color red has been proven to raise the heart rate and energy level. In interiors, red is used to make a bold statement. It is often used in restaurants and in food logos since seeing red is known to increase the appetite! ORANGE Excitement, tropics, vibrant, caution & safety, fun. Orange is known to encourage activity and stimulate conversation as well as enhance a feeling of vitality and happiness. Like red, it draws attention but is not overpowering. Often associated with “rebirth,” orange gained popularity in Renaissance paintings. YELLOW Happiness, light, sun, playfulness. Beyond being directly related to the sun, yellow is the easiest of colors for the human eye, although too much can be overwhelming. Different messages can be conveyed through various shades of yellow – light yellow communicates warmth and softness, while bright yellow raises emotional temperatures and increases liveliness and innovation. GREEN Nature, money, growth, prosperity, environment, luck. The color of nature, green is the most seen color in the world and can provoke a multitude of moods, from environmental awareness to fertility to growth. In interiors, green is meant to soothe and encourage mental relaxation. BLUE Water, calmness, soothing, tranquility, cold, relaxing. Seeing blue causes the body to naturally calm itself. Overall, it is the world’s preferred color and is associated with many religious practices. Blue is a symbol of rest and is often found in healthcare design and in bedrooms. PURPLE Flowers, horticulture, power, luxury, royalty, deception, pride. A combination of blue and red, purple’s emotional impact is a balance between the two. It is often used to calm, hence purple’s wide usage in beauty products. Incorporating purple can convey luxury, wealth and, in lighter hues, romance. a
