Logotype // Graphic and color charter
Which color? … Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, grey, white or black…?
Each color has its own emotional, sociological and historical connotations. But we must imagine the intricacies and complexity contained in these three aspects. We decide which color to use based on color uses and practices, knowledge that we continually cultivate, generating and regenerating symbolism and emotional connotations. This is the case for the color green. And there is not one green, but many, as it englobes a multitude of interpretations that develop a very rich palette of nuances that speak to us of ecology, biology, humanity, modernity, medicine, etc. All of these aspects are important, essentially positive values that have been adopted by today’s society. Emotion is tightly woven into our conception of beauty. It’s a phenomenon, with a psychological aspect, as well. Beautiful colors that captivate us are difficult to identify because they relate to a very personal esthetic experience. Emotion is not necessarily linked to sociological and historical values. And that’s good news! Thinking outside the box is also a great idea.
