Brands have their famous logos, of course. And these logos are designed in a way that will represent a brand's image, integrity, and identity. But more than that, these logos also stand for the company's ideals, values, and principles. Yes, that might sound like such a huge deal to put in a "simple" logo design, but it's actually not.

See, the logo is what will represent the company and its specific brand. If they're not represented well, then it will be such a waste to have people remember their name only. The graphics will always be an added attraction and visual for people to remember them by. People are mostly visual in thinking. That's why branding like this works. And the most popular and successful companies know this, all too well.

Thus, it's no surprise that in designing the logo, the color has to be decided as well. Colors come with their own psychology and emotion, therefore it is necessary to have people feel something whenever they see such brand logos.

So, are you familiar with the colors of these very popular world brand logos? Then take the quiz and (color) chart away!
