Branding matters whether you are planning website that might be more of a blog or even if it is going to be a multi-million dollar business brand. Let’s have a look at some of the associated elements that can make or break the future success of a brand:
Colours speak a thousand languages and words. Branding heavily relies on good colour palette. This should not be treated as aesthetics – emotions are stimulated and subconscious associations are carried to different characteristics and things.
Experts believe that one should study the effects associated with colours that they are about to finalize for their brand. Different cultures may look at certain colours differently and may associate them with things based on their beliefs.
For example, SpiralClick uses blue for its brand; the colour blue symbolizes stability and depth. It signifies wisdom, loyalty, trust, faith, truth, intelligence and confidence.
