Choosing a colour for your logo is a very important part of the logo and corporate identity design process. Colours can convey a huge amount of subtle or no-so-subtle information, and re-enforce a message or even evoke a feeling.
It is therefore vital to choose well and appropriately when choosing colours for either your logo or your whole brand identity. Get the colours wrong and it could have serious consequences for any business.

This serves as a concise starter in the whole process of logo and brand design. The science and psychology of colour matters, really not just for the big corporations and giant businesses, but also to local and small businesses and entrepreneurs.
