Color Usability (part 2)

Back in October 2008 I wrote about color usability, and recently during my lunch break on one of my business trips I noticed the below packets:

Mayonnaise & Ketchup Packets

Mayonnaise & Ketchup Packets

I had just put Mayo on my fries and Ketchup on my salad!!!, A white Ketchup packet and a red Mayo packet… how creative! According to the Gestalt theory, the mind easily views the whole of the object without really going into details, and according to this without reading the text, I assumed red=Ketchup, white=Mayo…

I would love to know if any of you have similar or related examples to both Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, drop me a comment if you do…
