Colour is such an important part of our visual world. Without it our lives would lack an exciting element there would be no Red Arrows • Red or dead • Red faced • In the red • red blooded • Red deer • Red hot • Red Letter days • Red Herrings • Red Cross • Red Hot Chili Peppers • Red Rose • Red meat • Red Indians • Ninety nine Red balloons • Simply Red (!)

Red is the most emotionally intense colour which stimulates the heart and breathing. It is the colour of love.

Simply seeing the colour red enhances the human metabolism by 13.4% and on a survey of children's favourite colours RED came top. To be bold use Red in any campaign that wishes to exude passion, warmth, power and efficiency.

Danger signs are usually always red - red lights alert us to stop, and in the animal world various species of animals use red to announce mating season, or to issue a warning to the oncomer - sex and/or death, an interesting choice.
