LONDON, ENGLAND, June 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ventas Central have highlighted why understanding colour psychology is important for business.

Reason one being that colours impact a consumer's interpretation of a brand's personality; for example, blue is associated with trust and strength, red is connected with excitement and youth and purple is linked with sophistication and creativity. Psychologist Jennifer Aaker has conducted studies on Dimensions of Brand Personality and her studies have found 5 core dimensions that play a role in a brand's personality:

- Sincerity - Domestic, Honest, Genuine, Cheerful.
- Excitement - Daring, Spirited, Imaginative, Up-to-date.
- Competence - Reliable, Responsible, Dependable, Efficient.
- Sophistication - Glamorous, Presentation, Charming, Romantic.
- Ruggedness - Tough, Strong, Outdoorsy, Rugged.

Sometimes brands can cross between several traits but they are mainly subject to one and this can be reflected in the link between the use of certain colours and a consumer's perception of a brand's personality.

The second reason is that colours can be used to attract a certain gender, the most common being pink for girls and blue for boys. Mentioned in Aaker's article, Joe Hallock created a study on this topic entitled 'Colour Assignments' his data clearly displays preferences in certain colours across gender. Showing that blue was the clear favourite among men with colours such as yellow, purple and orange being among their least favourite. With women blue was also the favourite, alongside purple that featured in men's least favourite. Understanding this is important to brands targeting a certain type of consumer.

Reason three is that colours that 'jump out' are more likely to be remembered and in turn make a brand more memorable. The psychological principle known as 'the Isolation Effect' states that if an item 'stands out like a sore thumb' it is more likely to be remembered. The Isolation Effect concentrates on the ability to recall or recognise something that you have seen before and proves that when something stands out from its surroundings it is more recognisable and easily remembered.
