The importance of color

After graduating from the University … Web: www.loudthought.biz Details Drug company studies have shown that the color of a pill affects a patient’s feelings about taking the drug. For example, patients with acid reflux are more reluctant to take medication that is bright green, a color most people associate with acidity and sourness, preferring a soothing pink pill.1 Color TrendsFirst, you see it on fashion models in New York City, Paris, and Milan. The alluring purple of a fresh orchid. Soon, you notice it popping up everywhere – on linens and dishes at Target, as a popular new paint at Sherwin Williams, as a background color on TV commercials.How does this happen? Color trends. Who makes it happen? Color trendsetters.One of the most prominent color trendsetters in the world is a company called Pantone. Pantone was founded in 1963 to create “an innovative system for identifying, matching, and communicating colors to solve the problems associated with producing accurate color matches in the graphic arts community.”2 Since then, Pantone has expanded its color matching system into every other color-intensive industry including fashion, interior design, architecture, product design, and more. Pantone’s profound expertise and research, coupled with their influence in a variety of industries, makes the company a world authority on color.Pantone’s Color Institute® was formed to “study how color influences human thought processes, emotions and physical reactions, furthering its commitment to providing professionals with a greater understanding of color and help them utilize color more effectively.”3 Twice a year – in May and November – the Pantone Color Institute holds a closed-door meeting in Europe. The meeting attendees are a hand-selected group of individuals from a variety of industries.4 Their names are never revealed to the public. The walls of the meeting room are pure white to prevent any interference with the colors being viewed by the committee. By the end of the meeting, the committee has chosen the “Color of the Year”, a distinctive hue christened by the committee with a memorable name such as Tigerlily or Radiant Orchid. It doesn’t take long for designers to pick up the “Color of the Year” and start weaving it into their work, first in the fashion industry and then trickling down to everyone else.

About PANTONE, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, http://www.pantone.com/about-us?from=topNav4. The Business Of Color: Company Sets Fashion Trends, Ilya Marritz, http://www.npr.org/2011/02/10/133636541/the-business-of-color-company-sets-fashion-trends Our world is awash with color. In a single day, we see thousands of different hues that our brains interpret as robin’s egg blue, fuchsia, or olive drab, to name a few. Nature employs color with unparalleled artistry, making sunsets more breathtaking, flowers more exquisite, and wildlife more captivating. Though few compare with Mother Nature, designers also use color in a meaningful, emotive way. Whether it’s an interior designer choosing a color palette for a new restaurant, a graphic designer crafting a brand for a new company, or a product designer finding the most desirable color for his new product, a tremendous amount of care and thought goes into the selection of every color.The Emotion and Meaning of ColorsPicture your favorite color. Is it a calming green? A vibrant yellow? Classic black? How does seeing that color make you feel? We don’t always realize it, but color is closely tied to human emotion. Even our language reflects this. We are “tickled pink”, “seeing red”, or “feeling blue.”To Americans, the colors below typically represent the following emotions or characteristics:Industry Color ConnotationsColors can also have a positive or negative association within a specific industry.Because being “in the red” is a negative financial term, most banks avoid using the color red in their brand and marketing materials.Young children prefer bright colors, so toy manufacturers steer clear of grays and subdued shades in their packaging to make the items more appealing to children browsing the toy aisles.Studies have shown that the color yellow can increase the severity of nausea; therefore airlines avoid using the color on the interior of commercial airliners.center_img Contributing Author: Erin Ortiz Finding the Right Colors for Your BrandAs a branding company, we see it far too often — businesses selecting brand colors based on personal preferences, rather than through careful examination and strategy. Perhaps the CEO has an affinity for orange or the Marketing Director hates the color blue. By taking this route, you could be sending an inaccurate message to prospective customers every time you flash your brand, misrepresenting who you are and failing to reach your intended audience. Picture the Dodge Ram logo in hot pink. Does hot pink communicate ruggedness, the outdoors, diesel, and horsepower?Take-AwaysColor and emotion are closely tied. Understand the meaning behind every color before you choose colors for your brand.Consider your industry. Are there positives and negatives associated with specific colors?Color trends are set by color experts based on research and forecasted consumer preferences.Put personal preferences aside and select colors that effectively communicate who your company is, what you offer, and the benefit you provide your customers.last_img read more

Colorado credit union sues Federal Reserve Bank

first_img continue reading » The Fourth Corner Credit Union asked a Colorado federal judge last month to force the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City to issue a master account that would enable the Denver-based state chartered credit union to serve social groups that support legalizing marijuana.The credit union’s civil complaint filed Sept. 29 in U.S. District Court in Denver argues federal law “unambiguously creates a non-discretionary statutory obligation” that requires FRB-KC issue a master account to all depository institutions. The lawsuit alleged that FRB-KC has “invoked an illegal discriminatory procedure” by requesting information from the credit union that the FRB-KC is not entitled to receive from any depository institution that applies for a master account. The credit union is asking a federal judge in Denver to render a declaratory judgment and grant a mandatory injunction that would order the federal reserve bank to immediately issue the master account.TFCCU initially applied for a master account with FRB-KC in November 2014 after it received a state charter to serve the legalized recreational marijuana industry in Colorado. However, the credit union has since changed its business plan to serve social groups supporting the legalization of marijuana. The credit union also said it would not serve marijuana-related businesses in the state until there is a change in federal law that would authorize financial institutions to serve the pot industry. 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Everything he’s done in the game is just admirable alone.

Pieters sinks Magpies

first_imgStoke boosted their hopes of a top-10 finish and increased the pressure on Alan Pardew with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Britannia Stadium. The Potters have never finished in the top 10 in the Barclays Premier League before but are now only three points behind Newcastle in ninth and four points short of their record tally of 47 points. They needed a stroke of good fortune to seal the win, though, with Erik Pieters’ 42nd-minute strike certainly intended as a cross. Press Association Steven Nzonzi tried his luck at the other end in the 26th minute with a shot from the edge of the box that was deflected over the bar by Fabricio Coloccini. Peter Odemwingie had a similar opening soon after when he was well found by Arnautovic but he miscued his shot horribly. Then in the 42nd minute Stoke made the breakthrough, Pieters floating his cross just beyond the despairing reach of Krul. It was undoubtedly tough on Newcastle, who tried to respond before the break through Chei ck Tiote but his fierce long-ranger was well held by Asmir Begovic. Like the first half, the first chance of the second period was a Crouch header from Arnautovic’s cross, but this time the striker could not quite get over the top of the ball. And Crouch threatened again in the 61st minute, this time with a header from Geoff Cameron’s deep cross, but Krul was behind it. Shawcross showed his value at the other end with a block from Mike Williamson’s goal-bound shot, leaving the Newcastle defender with head in hands. Charlie Adam entered the fray as a 66th-minute replacement for Ireland and wearing a mask to protect his nose, which he broke in four places in training this week. The Scot is due to have an operation on Monday but did not want to miss the game. And he almost made the points safe when he ran onto Arnautovic’s clever pass but pulled his shot past the far post. Begovic had been largely untroubled in the second half but Vurnon Anita spurned a great chance to equalise five minutes from time when he headed Ameobi’s cross over an empty goal. Boos from the travelling fans greeted the final whistle, with a ‘Pardew Out’ banner displayed. Newcastle have taken just 13 points from 16 games since beating nine-man Stoke at St James’ Park on Boxing Day. It was the Dutch full-back’s first goal for Stoke and his first in any competition since he played for FC Utrecht six years ago. Newcastle have now lost four successive games, conceding 12 goals and scoring none, and there were calls for Pardew’s head from the sizeable travelling support. The visitors were boosted by the return of goalkeeper Tim Krul from injury while Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross became the first player to make 200 Premier League appearances for the club. The hosts, watched by their biggest crowd of the season, have lost just twice at the Britannia Stadium in the league all campaign and they should have taken the lead in the 10th minute. The dangerous Marko Arnautovic swung over a perfect cross but leading scorer Peter Crouch headed against a post from five yards. Two minutes later it was Newcastle’s turn to miss a golden chance as Shola Amoebi’s flick found Dan Gosling in front of goal six yards out but he could only slice the ball over the bar. Most of the pressure was coming from Stoke but Ameobi and his strike partner Papiss Cisse were causing problems for the hosts. The latter wanted a penalty after going down under a clumsy challenge from Geoff Cameron but referee Mike Jones was unmoved. last_img read more
