    1. Dark gray is one of my favorite colors. Most of the pants I wear to work are dark gray. It is also the color of my favorite suit. You may have noticed that the background color of Brain Drain is dark gray, while my personal website’s is an even darker gray. To me dark gray is looks simple, clean, and professional. That’s the image I want to show others.

    2. I think McDonald’s is a company that uses colors well in their logo. McDonald’s is a fast food company, and their logo has a large yellow M against a red background. Red and yellow are both warm colors, so they make customers feel comfortable and cheerful. The colors can even remind customers of their food. The red makes me think of a hot hamburger with ketchup. The yellow makes me think of golden French fries and cheese on my burger at McDonald’s on a bright, sunny day.

    2.I think Coca-Cola’s is a company that uses colors very nice in their logo. Coca-Cola’s is a drinking water company. Their logo has a script white Coca-Cola against a red background or a script red Coca-Cola against a white background. Anymore they release a script black Coca-Cola against a white background or a script white Coca-Cola against a black background. Red is passion color. Their purpose is to make customers feel powerful and cheerful. Coke color is similarly red or black. These days their purpose is to protect nature. So which country makes white color coke. Anyone likes Coca-Cola is so sweet and delicious.

    I want to introduce my favorite company, LEGO. LEGO is a toy company, and their logo has big red square, yellow, black, and white letters.
    First, red is warm color, so it makes people feel cheerful and gives a stimulus in a short time. Second, yellow and black complement each other, so they can highlight and catch everyone’s attention. Last colors like white convey reponsibility and confidence for consumers of all ages.
    So when I was little, everyday I pastered my parents to buy it and I don’t think it’s just my experience. Thus I think LEGO uses colors well in their logo.

    Homeplus is a department store. Their logo has red word “Homeplus” and red highlight under that word against white background. I think white is clean and peaceful , red is warm and intense. So Homeplus looks like something kind , clear and luxurious . And this logo leaves strong impression on me. So I use this familiar homeplus frequently.
