Humans and their Relationship with Color

Humans and their Relationship with Color


Humans have a very deep relationship with color, both on an emotional level and cultural level. Emotionally speaking, we think of "cool blues" and "warm yellows". Colors can either make us feel peaceful, or energized. Culturally speaking, for example, purple is a sign of royalty, and the bright colors of spices are often used in Indian food.

Understanding the meaning of the different colors is very important in all design. People who use color in advertising and logos go to great lengths to consider the psychology of the colors behind what they are creating.

 

Let's take a closer look at them.

RED

Red creates a sense of urgency. It's very popular in price tags, sale signs, error messages, and stop signs.

ORANGE

Orange symbolizes energy and enthusiasm.

YELLOW

We think of yellow as being bright and happy. In nature, many animal show this color to warn predators of danger.

GREEN

Green tends to be calming. It is also associated with prosperity and success. In nature, we attribute green to freshness and fertility.

BLUE

Blue is a calming color that evokes a sense of trust. It is definitely a favorite amongst American politicians.

VIOLET

Violet is the color of luxury and royalty. This color represents wealth and is often used for high-end products.

Know that you know some of the psychology behind colors, how will you incorporate them into your designs?

Hues, Values & Saturation

Hues, Values & Saturation


Continuing with last week's theme of color theory, I wanted to dig a little deeper and look at the difference between hue, value, and saturation. These are the three dimensions that humans are able to view color.

The Munsell color system was created by Albert H. Munsell and provides a great visual of the three dimensions.

HUE (COLOR)

Hue is the main property of color. Blue, red, yellow, orange, etc. are all hues.

VALUE (LIGHTNESS & DARKNESS)

Value refers to the spectrum between light and dark colors. You can imagine the spectrum  as having white at one end, black at the other end, and greys in the middle. White is the presence of all color, while black is the absence of all color. Value is the luminosity of a specific color.

SATURATION (INTENSITY & RICHNESS)

Saturation is also known as Chroma and refers to a color’s richness and intensity. Washed out colors are located toward the center of the spectrum, while the richest of colors are located toward the outer edge. Saturation refers to how intense or how week a color is.

Why don't you look more closely now at some of these amazing backgrounds and patterns. You can use your newfound vocabulary to talk about the beautiful colors.

Core Concepts in Color Theory

Core Concepts in Color Theory


There is no right or wrong way to use color, but it is important to learn some general concepts and theories to gain an understanding about how colors work together. Humans respond to color in a very unique way. Color can affect our mood as well as our behavior. It's interesting to examine color theory by exploring color relationships and color schemes.

COLOR RELATIONSHIPS

The color wheel breaks down color relationships into three basic categories: Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary.

 

PRIMARY COLORS

These colors are: red, blue, and yellow. They cannot be created by mixing other colors. However, almost all visible colors can be created with these three colors.

SECONDARY

These colors are created by mixing together two primary colors:

  • Red + Yellow = Orange

  • Yellow + Blue = Green

  • Red + Blue = Violet

TERTIARY

Tertiary colors are created when you mix one primary color with one secondary color:

  • Red + Violet = Red-Violet

  • Yellow + Green = Yellow-Green

  • You get the idea!

 

COLOR SCHEMES

A color scheme is a combination of colors used to convey a particular mood or theme in a design. It helps to create an aesthetic feeling or mood. The most basic color scheme will use two colors, while more advanced color schemes will involve several colors. Color schemes can also help to influence typography and other web elements when designing a website.

MONOCHROMATIC

Uses a single hue and then a variety of its tints and shades.

ANALOGOUS

Uses three hues next to one another on the color wheel. The combination of Orange-Red, Orange and Yellow is an Analogous color scheme.

COMPLEMENTARY

Uses hues that are opposite each other on the color wheel. The combination of Red and Green arise a Complementary color scheme.

TRIADIC

Uses three colors that are equidistant from each other on the color wheel. The combination of the primary colors, Red, Blue and Yellow is a Triadic color scheme.

Check out the amazing resources at Creative Market where designers show off their knowledge of color theory in their work.
