Why Trademark Colors Matter
Colors can make people think or feel a certain way about a product. A color can be associated with products in a literal or an abstract way to produce certain psychological effects. Blue, for example, can be used for frozen, cool products, while green is often used for healthy or organic choices. Certain colors can be considered to work together or be particularly aesthetically pleasing. Green and yellow are closely related, so they appear to be harmonious.
