Yellow in branding

Yellow is typically believed to convey:

  • Sunshine
  • Hope
  • Happiness
  • Positivity
  • Fresh
  • Enlightenment
  • Energy
  • Loyalty
  • Joy
  • Intellect
  • Select colors that represent your brand personality

    Businesses that want to communicate energy, hope, and optimism often choose a yellow logo. It can feel bright and cheery, and help to attract others to engage with your business or cause.

    Keep it simple

    In large doses, bright yellow can be overbearing and hard to read. Certain darker shades of yellow can also appear brown or muddy, so we typically recommend keeping your logo design simple and using a medium yellow — not too bright or too dark.

    Choose the right color combination

    Yellow and black can be used to grab attention and communicate a message about safety, while yellow and orange can feel much warmer and more welcoming. Want to communicate royalty and status? Try pairing yellow with a dark purple in your logo.
