Today (08/03/18) is International Women's Day, and to mark the occasion, our Managing Director Angela did a Facebook live video to discuss the This is Milk brand, where the colours came from, and why we won't be removing the colour Pink from our brand colours.
What's in a colour?
Well it doesn't and we relished at the opportunity to buck the trend, stand out, and more importantly create a brand that represents who we were as people as well as professionals.
Why does corporate have to mean boring?
Creating the This is Milk brand was both painstaking and liberating, allowing us to build a brand that the whole team could get behind, be a part of and be proud of. It stands for progressiveness, empowerment and a vision to bring a new age of consultancy to the Scottish market.
but... there are some people that just don't like us using the colour PINK! It's too feminine, it's too delicate, it's not a colour that the corporate world wants to associate with.
Well this is exactly what Angela has to say about that!
"I would love for you to have a watch, share, discuss this topic, and even come talk to me! Let's all work towards a world where we're human - whatever that means to you."
The science behind the colour
It's a colour of compassion, understanding and insight. It's empathetic and hopeful. It is a positive colour inspiring warm and comforting feelings and a sense that everything will be okay.
Sounds exactly like This is Milk!
