The Color Of Success

As a veteran graphic designer, I’m always aware of the importance of color in creating a mood, making a bold statement, and establishing a distinctive brand. Consciously and unconsciously we all rely on color to provide order in a sometimes chaotic world (stop on red, go on green!).

Time and time again, it’s been shown that strategic use of color can be instrumental in establishing and reinforcing a brand. Writing in “Marketing Insights,” an American Marketing Association publication, market researcher Jeri Smith paints a clear picture of just how influential color can be in the mind of the consumer and in the life of a great brand.

Coming Home To Clarity

I can’t remember when I’ve looked forward to a vacation more. A whole week off with time in the big city and on the beach. Last week’s whirlwind visit with friends and family in New York and New England was a long overdue reunion with people and places we love. It was also a welcome break from the frenetic, day-to-day pace of operating a business, a chance to step off the merry-go-round for a bit, to recharge and re-connect.

It was only on the long drive home that I began to realize just how much I missed the routines I’d been so eager to escape. There’s a kind of comfort and security that comes with repetition, and as much as I like to think of myself as a free spirit, I’m more a creature of habit than I care to admit. According to Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Charles Duhigg, author of “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business,” that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    “When it was time to do our television show, Karen Cronin and I had already done a lot of CD packaging and books and side projects together, so I knew that the set for the TV show was just a matter of turning the wheel in yet one more direction. We had one conversation, and I knew Cronin Creative had it covered. I’m spoiled.” – Marty Stuart
