The Effect of Color Harmony on Creative Cognition and Perceived Innovativeness of Brands

Color could also impact creativity through the disfluency of moderately disharmonious color combinations. This research demonstrates that using moderate disharmony is more effective in prompting creative thinking than any one color in isolation.
