Color is considered one of the most useful and powerful design tools there is. People respond to different colors in different ways, and these responses take very often place on a subconscious, emotional level. Color symbolism can vary dramatically between cultures. Research has also shown that most colors have more positive associations with them then negative.  So, although some colors do have negative connotations (such as Black for a funeral or for evil), these negative elements are usually triggered by specific circumstances.  Peoples age also has an effect on how colors are perceived.  For example, children tend to like bright, happy colors.
