Hi everyone, I've just sign up to this great site and this is my first topic. Can you suggest a few articles about psychology of color, with web examples if possible? I was googling for a while and have not found anything good so far.

I wrote an article on Colour Psycology on my blog a few months ago: How colours affect moods, how brands use colours for marketing all that kind of thing. http://explainafide.com.au/business-of-art-blog/2012/02/color-psychology/

I highly recommend James Gurney's blog. He tends to cover many many subjects related to many aspects of Art/Painting but he is very informative and really does know color. By the way he is good friends with Thomas Kinkade, they wrote a book together on sketching years ago.

I'll second the James Gurney recommendation. Also for some independent research, maybe look at films/paintings/photographs that have similar desired emotional reactions?

You can start by going here: Color Worqx

And go here for web design: Color Theory for Designers - The Meaning of Color

Here is a great documentary (podcast audio) from CBC Radio called "The Power of Colour"

Hello,

I have an idea about some social network (I don't want to specify it more ;) ).

What colour / color combination / palette you recommend?

Thank you for replies :).
