Billboard: Colour codes
Blue is often used on the front cover of billboard symbolising positivity, peace, tranquillity, stability, harmony, unity, trust, confidence, conservatism, security, cleanliness, order, loyalty, sky, water, cold and technology. The blue on this front cover could represent a 'blue sky' quality in the music industry, the fact that there are no limits and that everyone has a shot at success. Yellow has also been used on the front cover which holds connotations of the sun, intelligence, light, logical imagination, cooperation, organisation, sunshine, joy, happiness, intellect, energy, cheerfulness, optimism, purity, enthusiasm, warmth, honour and loyalty. It is also opposite blue on the colour wheel, allowing the text on the page to be prominent.
