One of the first questions I ask my clients who are either starting a business or re-branding, way before we even look at brand colours, is why did they decide to go into business, what is their Big Why. Surprisingly most say it isn’t something they even thought of.
It’s the end of another year and I’m always excited to see which blogs were the most popular with my readers. Checking Google Analytics below is the list of the 10 most popular posts.
It’s really interesting to see what my blog readers found of interest. There’s a great mix of business interiors, business branding and of course the Olympic games… yet all relating to colour! So from 10 to 1 here they are…
Yesterday, 1st December, Australia became the first country in the world to have a law come into effect forcing tobacco firms to sell cigarettes in plain packets. This was to remove any ‘perceived’ glamour from smoking and prevent young people from taking up smoking.
One of the most common questions I’ve been asked during this month of 30 blogs in 30 days is can you tell me if my business brand colours are right?
Naturally as business owners we all want to be attracting our ideal clients not repelling them so it is no surprise this has become a somewhat frequently asked question.
Without doing a full brand analysis which to answer a question like this would require, instead I’m going to set out a several tips you can follow to help you become more aware, and more concious of your colour choices.

Colour is an integral part of every business and every product and is often the most important part of a design, so understanding how to apply colour effectively is critical to business success and our own performance and well-being.
When you choose a colour or colours for your brand, do you know what they are saying? Businesses that choose yellow as their primary brand colour, are they all expressing a personality of happiness, optimism and friendliness? And when yellow is incorporated with another colour or colours, you can completely change the meaning of your brand identity without even realising.
If you watched the UK apprentice on Wednesday night you would have seen Tom Gearing and Ricky Martin go through to the final for winning this week’s task.
The brief was to create an affordable luxury product range. They were then asked to present their range, along with their business model, to Lord Sugar and to leading industry experts.
Companies who have a staff uniform are looking to gain maximum brand recognition and brand awareness, and it helps the staff be easily identifiable. Those companies who wear pink uniforms are looking to instil the feeling of being helpful in a caring, nurturing way. This not only instils these positive characteristics in their staff but to project this to their customers too.
A great way to increase brand recognition is by using your brand colour within your client face areas within your store, boutique or office interiors.
