In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on the realm of color psychology and how it may play a role in your mouthguard selection. Colors have more of an impact on various psychological areas than you might think, and those may be important to you if you're looking to "psych out" opponents or otherwise include these themes in the mouthguard you choose.
At Damage Control Mouthguards, we're proud to offer a huge range of custom mouthguards for any sport, including custom-fit options with specific designs or colors on them. Here in today's part two of our series, let's discuss a few more specific colors and the kinds of themes they may invoke if you use them in your mouthguard.
Yellow is known to represent themes like warmth and radiance, happiness, intellect, and freshness. It's often seen as a very positive color and is frequently used in branding for products or companies that want to come across as young, fun, and exciting.
If you're looking to psych out your opponents, using a yellow mouthguard may be the way to go. It'll communicate energy, liveliness, and a zest for life that may be intimidating, as most people associate this color with positive things.
Green has long been associated with both wealth and health, and also represents nature and growth. It's often seen as a solid, dependable color that indicates staying power and longevity.
If you're looking to create the impression of strength, durability, or even eternal life, using green in your mouthguard design may be the way to go for you. While each person will have their own associations with colors like this one, it's undeniable that these kinds of shades have a strong impact on us, so you can use them to your advantage in a mouthguard.
Similar to yellow in many ways, orange is a vibrant, radiant color that communicates energy and liveliness. It's often associated with happiness, fun, and excitement, making it a great choice for a mouthguard if you're looking to come across as outgoing and positive.
Like yellow, using orange in your mouthguard can psych out your opponents by giving them the feeling that you're having a good time and that you're confident in your abilities. It's also a great choice if you want to feel more positive about your game or come across as approachable and friendly.
Finally, purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, creativity, mystery, independence, wisdom, magic, and ambition. Depending on the shade of it you use, it can be overwhelming, calming, or even depressing (especially to the eye).
If you're looking for a mouthguard design that'll communicate ambition and drive, using purple may work. You could also use this color to your advantage if you want to suggest air of mystery or mystery -- assuming nobody knows what you're planning!
