These photos were taken by “Stand still photography “ for our engagement photos two years ago.
The photos turned out super creative, fun and messy. I am inspired everyday by colours that are bright and fun!
But can we use the combination of these colours in design/illustration?
Here are some interesting facts about these colours, I know the red and yellow are not quite as the pure-original form, but they have similar descriptions
-Red is the best colour if you want to capture attention. It provokes the most response with people
-It is one of the most visible colors, second only to yellow
-It is a symbol of high energy, passion, importance, danger, anger, excitement, being bold, strength
-Yellow represents youth, happiness, sunshine, joy
-It is a cheerful energetic colour. It’s used in children’s toys and clothes
-It stimulates mental and physically activity
-Orange is the energy of red and the happiness of yellow
-It represents fire, the sun, fun, tropical
-Its associated with autumn, healthy food, strength
-White is associated with innocence, safety, and cleanliness.
-It suggests simplicity in products and safety in medical products
-White makes you think of peace and a new beginning
The combination of red, yellow and orange is a little risky. The all are warm and strong colours trying to get all the attention. These colours only work great, because there is a lot of white. Also they are meant to transmit the energy, fun, joy from the photo shoot. Use these colours only if you have more white than these colours combined; your eyes will be thankful to have all that white to break up the space. Use it if you are working with a concept that involves movement, energy, or just a simple message of having fun! The best audience is children, and creative young adults.
