    Colors of Success

    I am putting together a site and I want to convey success in achievment. "I just got what I REALLY ahve been working hard for..."

    I was thinking about red, but not sure about what to go with it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I strongly suggest a Salmon/Teal combination...that screams "I Just got what I've been working hard for.....and I also vomited all over myself".....

    But seriously, maybe a yellow/blue combo? The lighter side of blue and a darker yellow. I worked on a flash presentation for a large company and we used those colors to convey the same type of message.

    There's so many possibilities..... It's hard to say!

    I would go with a blue/gray color with maybe a khaki green or something like that...

    But yet, for more fun, I'd use a blue/gray with a very bright blue or ornage for punch of color. Depends if you want to say professionnal ou creative...

    Go with your gut feeling I woud say Good luck!

    well... colour is not a definite signifier, however it does emit certain frequencies which assist is emotional associations.

    red (&gold)... is seen in asian countries as a royal, 'happy' colour and would be very auspicious. however in western countries it can be seen to convey energy, violence, rage etc.

    royal blue (deep blue like ultramarine)... is a standard 'corporate' colour. very bank-like and safe suggesting stability.


    but personally i would suggest the primary use of a neutral colour (like grey), with the 'splash' of a strong bright secondary colour (say sky-blue).

    keep the design minimalist, as success is apparent and something you dont have to shout.




    cheers.

    upon reaching their goal, the most sucessful person typically gets a BLUE ribbon.

    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.

    I agree, I thought of Royal Blue and Antiqe Red. Also Gold and Silver. Think of the colours in an old cinema.
