Shades of Grey. Orange Is The New Black. The Scarlet Letter. Colours are clearly important in marketing. We know. And you have also probably noticed that a lot of companies use blue in their logos.
To prove that internet companies are a little out of control with the blue, though, and that we all subconsciously love it, web designer Colin Gourlay created the quiz site Name That Blue.

Preen your peacock feathers and then take a stab at it. [Name That Blue]
