Like many trends, color trends begin with the experts. Folks in fashion or design circles choose their favorite hues, and gradually, they spread to other industries. One day, cool, sleek colors are all the rage. The next, it’s bright purples. Studies on color psychology show that color truly does influence our subconscious emotions. That’s why you need to make smart color choices for your brand.
