Color Symbolism and Colours That Go Together Color symbolism is the use of color to represent traditional, cultural, or religious ideas, concepts, or feelings or to evoke physical reactions. Jump right to one of the colors or color groups I cover in detail or scroll past the color list for more general discussion of color meanings and how color works.

Choosing colors based on symbolism can apply to everything from clothing to wall paint to home furnishings.

Then, through an act of grace and giving to all, she allows the materials to fall to the will of creation patterns.
Free All-in-One Graphic Design Starter Kit Graphic design has an amazing community. Comprised of both the vets from the pre-computer era to the newbies who were raised on the internet and computer-editing applications, there is a huge gamut of people sharing their work and expertise online.
