Colours always have a meaning behind them that we instantly connect with. It can stimulate us, unnerve us, inspire us and cause tears and happiness. One of the more emotive colours is yellow.
The Positive and Creative Impact of the Colour Yellow
Yellow stands out from the crowd as an uplifting colour of happiness and all round positivity. It is a warm colour that inspires a creative reaction from those who surround themselves with it, building confidence and co-operation, original thoughts and a thirst for knowledge.
It is a colour that really does link to clean thoughts, clear images and a thought process that wants to be creative and think of something brand new.
When linked to the colour coding of our products and equipment, the freshness of yellow corresponds nicely with the fact we use yellow colour coded products to clean clinical areas, such as Jangro Medical Sanitiser to help prevent infection. Yellow sits nicely within the thought of a sparkling, sanitised clean surface.
