Specific Colour Associations
Blue is best for ‘building a stable and calming environment that helps people stay focused’.
Green is great for working long hours and this is partially because it doesn’t cause eye fatigue the way other colours do.
Yellow is a sunny colour and is known to promote optimism and stimulate creativity.
Red is great for tasks that involve physical labour as it raises heart rate, increases blood flow, and evokes emotion.
