The Color Code

If you’re like most people, you are subconsciously influenced by color. Psychologists have long known that color has a strong impact on mood and is a driving force behind behavioral and decision-making processes. Advertisers are aware of this too, and use color to their advantage when promoting products and services. Opinions vary on just how strongly color influences purchases; some surveys have shown color to be the primary motivator in 85 percent of buying decisions and at least a partial factor 93 percent of the time, though personal reactions are highly subjective.

Since the early 1900’s, the American Advertising Federation (AAF) has been unifying the voice of advertising and connecting professionals across the nation.

In 2016, Evergreen Media entered into our local chapter’s American Advertising Awards — one of the industry’s largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 35,000 professional and student entries each year across the country. We walked away with a Silver for an external client project and knew we would be back.

This year, we are honored to announce Evergreen Media has won both a Gold and Silver ADDY for two client projects we’ve had the opportunity working on this past year.

Entries that receive the coveted Gold ADDY for being recognized as the highest level of creative excellence are automatically forwarded onto the next tier of the competition. Follow along on Facebook as we hear more details!

Although that was the first encounter I had with Rick the Owner and Publisher of Evergreen Media, I knew Rick the Dedicated Coach long before that. I grew up living in the world of softball, and spent many weekends watching and learning from Rick, as he coached my sister. Since my time here at Evergreen I have realized Rick the Dedicated Coach, and Rick the Owner and Publisher of Evergreen Media, aren’t that much different. He took a chance with me – just as he did with the many girls he has coached over the years.
