    hi there,

    i am writing my dissertation on the use/ effects of color and it's subliminal messages in graphic design and advertising. phew!

    any info on that topic anyone? good sites, books journals, articles in mags? also any good brand case studies that anyone can think of? i know all mega brands use consumer manipulation through colour to some extent, but i need some juicy sh*t to make my research more interesting.

    any help would be muchos appreciated.
