When selecting uniforms for your company, you may simply consider the style of the uniform and whether or not it suits the function of the job. But when you do this, you may be forgetting one integral piece of the puzzle of appearance and function – color. Considering color psychology in the selection of uniform colors is key to company branding.
Many large brands and corporations utilize color psychology in their uniforms. Think of the green aprons at Starbucks or the yellow logo shirts at IKEA. Every company has a color scheme they follow to invoke certain emotions and feelings in their customers to be associated with their brand. But when you only have these colors on the surface, you miss out on the true opportunity that uniform colors offer to your business: the perception of your customers.
