Use of Colour in Marketing and Advertising

Use of Colour in Advertising and Marketing

All of our work involves colour. Whether we’re creating silicone wristbands, lanyards, trolley coins or car air fresheners, colour is one of the most important elements. We use the Pantone colour chart in our work and most of our products can be matched to a Pantone colour or mix of colours.

We’re often asked about the impact of using this or that colour and so we’ve put together a useful guide by curating some of our favourite articles on the subject. The articles cover colour psychology, marketing, advertising and branding.
