Via Lifehack, I found a link to a brief discussion of color psychology. When I was in design school, I took a class in color psychology and found it utterly fascinating. Little did I know then that the class would prevent my becoming a rape victim -the man outside my door was wearing a green tie so I didn’t let him in. Green -in a business context- can mean one is not trustworthy (there’s a reason green business suits are rare), blue is its opposite. If you read the psychology of color, you’ll learn why this site’s colors are red, white and blue. My color selection wasn’t based on my personal color preferences; it was deliberate and intentional. Hopefully I continue to portray the values represented by the colors I chose. You can find more on color psychology here.
