Red is the color of passion, energy and excitement. Red roses are the language of love. In China and many other cultures, red is associated with happiness. Red is found in many national flags as it indicates courage. Las Vegas is the city of red neon – it excites people to take risks! We speak of “seeing red” when we are angry. Red has high visibility – you’ll find many shop signs and logos in red. A red light makes you stop on the road, and a fire engine is painted red – both signal danger.
Red is found in many corporate logos. A stimulating color, it suggests vigor, power and strength, determination and boldness. Combined with the neutral, calming qualities of grey, or the clean, pure simplicity of white, red is used effectively in many websites. Red and black make a striking and bold contrast – black conveys sophistication and power. Warmer reds like brick or maroon have a strong and comforting feel about them, while brighter reds suggest energy and appeal to younger people. Red is also used as an effective accent color in website design, especially in ‘Buy Now’ buttons that stimulate action.
Red elicits a definite reaction in the viewer. You will notice that different shades and textures of red are used in website design and red is teamed with white, grey or black so that the color red doesn’t overpower the website visitor, rather, it stimulates him or her to action.
