Does the colour of a logo determine how you feel about a business?

This is an interesting question.

Here is one of our Guild Buttons in different colours.

Which one apeals to you and why?

Social Media Today have an interesting article about emotional responses to colours.You can find the entire article here.
The black and gold are the actual colours of our button and when asked, our members agreed that it is luckily the one that they prefer. But how do the others make you feel?

The red and blue catch my eye the most out of all of them but they lack the professionalism and luxiousness of the black and gold. (In my opinion)

The yellow is bright and cheerful and the green nice and soft.

Which would make you want to find out more?
