I am orange and red. That is who I am. Strong willed and occasionally fiery. I have strong feelings and express myself passionately. I love these colors.
Red is one of the most powerful and emotion evoking colors. Red is one of three primary colors that evokes strong responses such as passion, stimulation, excitement, power and growth.
Orange is the harmonic marriage between red and yellow. It combines the passion and energy from the primary color with the sunniness and freshness of yellow. Orange hues tend to be balanced, energetic and inviting. It is associated with joy, sunshine and the tropics. It represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement and stimulation.
In design, both colors are great for splashes of color and accents. As dominant colors they can often overpower other design elements. They both are colors of very high visibility to be used to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your designed space.
