The Power of Colour

posted on 19th Apr 2018 by Xat Houatchanthara

The power of colour and its association with its country of origin cannot be underestimated. Think of green and its association with Ireland and St Patrick’s Day – a now global phenomenon with the go green initiative.

The colour of your jersey and the pride that is associated with wearing the colour of your country creates both passion and pride for both the wearer and the spectator.

In the same way colour can link and connect us to everyday brands.

Think of red and we can see Coca Cola and Vodafone. Think of purple and we see Cadbury’s. Black and “the black stuff “ Guinness, one of Ireland’s most iconic brands.

The association of colour with your brand can create strong competitive advantage and brand recognition. Which leads to the question for Dublin Bus – is this a missed opportunity?
