Studies have shown that orange tends to be the most disliked color in the Western World, so apply it sparingly and be careful using it in business. Despite its sometimes negative appeal, orange encourages self-respect and respect of others, relates to adventure and risk-taking. The youth market is especially drawn to this color because of the fun sense of adventure. It is often used in relation to athletics.

The invigorating benefits of orange mean we should use it in life every day, even if itโ€™s just using an orange pen or drinking coffee from an orange mug.
