Red and blue are two of the most popular color palette choices used in branding and marketing – and for good reason!
In color psychology, red is attention-grabbing and symbolizes passion excitement, and energy. Blue, on the other hand, represents reliability, trust, and security and also conveys a sense of professionalism and stability.
When you use a red and blue color palette, you create a powerful contrast in color that can evoke strong emotions while still conveying a sense of balance. This is why you will often see red and blue used in flags and political campaigns.
And both colors just look so darn good when mixed together!
