I was less concerned about the advertised product (Nippon Paint) and more interested at the message on the role of color. It’s true, color can indeed change your feeling. Because different colors carry different meanings.
In branding, color makes a world of difference. I’ve covered this subject plenty of times, some of the titles include: “The role of color in brand-building… beyond mere eye candy “; “The Role of Color: contradiction or complementary is a matter of culture“; “Culture & Brand-Building: The Role of Color“.
On a final note, however, is it me or I see a certain female anatomy in this print ad? You be the judge. Turns out the lemon got it right… except for the reddish tip.
