The Power of Colors and Shapes

Wednesday August 20, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM PDT
VAOI Building 1901 Main Street Baker City, OR 97814

Colors and shapes communicate meanings on a subconscious level. "Sensation Transference" was discovered by a man named Cheskin of the Color Research Institute of Chicago. Colors and Shapes work together to communicate qualities about your brand. These qualities evoke subconscious associations.

For example: Shapes can hard or soft, stable or mystical. Red can mean danger or evoke the emotion of love.

Understanding the power of shapes and colors is essential to a total sensory package. Therefore, like everything else in your sensory package, whatever shapes and colors you use must be subconsciously compelling.

Light appetizers with paid $5.00 entrance fee.
