The woman in this advertisement is wearing a green T-shirt and a yellow skirt.This is interesting because yellow and green are both positive colours.Yellow represents warmth and wisdom and can also remind you of a warm,sunny day.Her T-shirt is green.Green represents engery and nature.Maybe the woman feel tired and decided to wear green because this colour can make her feel more energetic.
The woman’s shoes are blue.Blue represents trust and it can also make us feel calm.
Maybe the woman is a bit stressed and that is why she wears blue. I think this woman is cheerful and friendly.She prefers warm,energetic and calm colours to strong colours.I think she must be very happy because yellow can remind you of a warm ,sunny day and green can give you lots of energy. I like this advertisement because it makes me feel wqarm and reminds me of the summer holidays.
The man in the advertisement on the right is wearing an orange T-shirt and blue trousers.This is interesting because these two colours have different meanings.Orange represents success and can cheer you up if you are feeling sad about something.I think success is important to him,but he also looks like he needs to calm down.
His shoes are white,which represents clam and peace,but his glasses are black.Black represents power and passion.I think this man has trouble making decisions.He seems to be moving very fast and doing many things at the same time. I do not think this is a good advertisement because most people would rather relax and feel calm than be very busy like the man in the picture.However,red is a good colour for the phone because red represents power and strength.People who enjoy being busy also like to feel strong and powerful.
