I found this article very interesting. I had never known the different meanings around the world for different colors. For example, in the United States, we wear black for a funeral but in China and Japan, white is the funeral color. I also found out that yellow is the first color the eye sees. The charts and examples this reading gives is very helpful and good to know when designing because you don't want to offend anyone by simply using a color that has a different meaning to them. It was interesting to read about the history of the color theory and where it all started. I had no idea that Sir Isaac Newton invented the color wheel either. I know I will use this article for future references.
