Indigo in Business

In using indigo in business applications you need to understand the traits, qualities and mood of the color along with its psychological meaning.  The messages it sends to your customer base can have a major impact on your business success.

Indigo or deep midnight blue is a powerful color related to the right side of the brain. It resonates to the 'New Age' way of thinking.


Psychologically, it conveys integrity and deep sincerity and stimulates creativity and intuition. While it is connected to structure, tradition, ritual and ceremony, it can also transform people's thinking and beliefs into developing new insights and a pioneering spirit. It imparts a message of great responsibility and high ideals.

Physiologically, it helps broaden the mind and free it of fears and inhibitions.

Indigo is also the color of the fanatic and the conformist as well as the addictive personality. It can, however, be depressing and boring to some people.
