Have you ever looked at a logo and wondered how they chose the color? There’s a lot of psychology that goes into branding, right down to what colors they use. This is especially true of Unicorn companies- companies with a valuation of over $1 billion.
Snapchat is one of the top 10 companies with the highest valuations. Its yellow logo is meant to be cheerful and warm. Xiaomi and Didi Kuaidi are also in the top ten, and their orange logos can elicit feelings of excitement and enthusiasm. SpaceX and Flipkart both have blue logos, which can elicit feelings of calmness and serenity.
