The Psychology of Color: A Guide to Color Selection [ Infographic ] by RIPT Apparel

The Psychology of Color: A Guide to Color Selection [ Infographic ] by RIPT Apparel


Color theory and psychology queries on the World Wide Web bring up so many different infographics about color. We've posted about The Meaning of Color in Marketing before and way back in 2008 History Of The Color Wheel (does this still feel relevant?).

With infographics having taken on mass popularity, I notice there are only a select few worth actually spending time poring over. While this infographic by RIPT Apparel is directed as a guide to Designers, it can be awesomely relevant to keep in mind when applying color with anything in life.

The infographic itself is well designed with a beautiful layout that makes for easy reading. Not to mention it is quite attractive to scan down and catch each color block quickly. I don't know about you, but my sensory system is loving this. I could certainly see this made in to an 8 x 8 flip book for desk reference. Thanks RIPT for creating such an impressive piece of visual information. Oh and hey, RIPT, if you're reading this, note on the desk reference, I would be first in line to order one!
