Colour Of The Week: Blue

The colour blue is one that fits into our lives in a variety of ways. While many remain resistant to its inclusion on design palettes, what cannot be disputed is its status as a primary colour. Not only is blue featured in the ubiquitous rainbow, it is also the commonly described colour of the sky and cleaner parts of the ocean. Blue has been adopted as the color of various sports teams, and even the name of the Auckland Super Rugby franchise and the New South Wales State of Origin team.

In addition, many buttons and logos for popular computer programs and graphical user interfaces are designed to be blue, though this can be modified. The classical colour of jeans is blue, though again, this is not a strictly enforced trend. On a darker note, ‘blue’ as a noun can be used to refer to a mistake, or ‘the blues’ as feelings of sadness or the related musical genre. In summation, blue is a versatile colour whose value cannot be ignored.
