What colors mean to people? Let’s talk about orange and pink

As a friend of mine or a client of apfelgruen you know that I’m in love with colors. Colors is an essential tool because it has an impact on how we think and behave. Color directs our eye where to look and how to interpret something. It helps us decide what’s important and what’s not. We don’t all react the same way to colors, as we all have previous experiences with colors from significant events, cultures, people, and memories. However, there are a few generalities about how people respond to color, and that’s what we’re going to look at.

My favorite design in my collection is the clothes Sunset with bright orange and pink flowers in a light green setting like apple green. What does orange and pink mean to us?

Orange has a very interesting psychological meaning as it combines red’s power and energy with yellow’s friendliness and fun. The mix makes orange a good representation of physical comfort in our warmth, food, and shelter. It even stimulates our appetite so watch out if you’re hungry! Orange is also known to be a color of motivation, lends a positive attitude, and general enthusiasm for life. Overall, orange is great for bringing comfort in tough times, and creating a sense of fun. Orange is commonly seen: Fruits, sporting events, and board games.

Pink is a softer, less intense version of red that creates a sense of compassion and unconditional love. While it’s a very physical color, it soothes rather than stimulates, making it a perfect color for caring, understanding. Pink is a sign of hope. It is also known to be very romantic as it shows empathy and sensitivity. If too much pink is used, it can be very draining, show a lack of power, and even immature. Overall, pink can be a great counter-option to the color red when used appropriately. Pink is commonly seen: Cancer patients, little kid objects, and bathroom products.
