This got me thinking and I was hoping it might spark some discussion...
I'm making a system at the moment which has a very prominent background. It's going to be rolled out to call centre agents to be used all day (8 hour shifts I think)
At the moment we have backgrounds consisting of colours, gradients and film scenes (it's for a broadcast company) but I was hoping to make a theme which will animate from colour to colour. Making a shaded animation that lasts a few minutes is easy enough, but the other UX guys and I were hoping to introduce a theme with an 8 hour colour animation which will transform throughout an agent's shift.
Unfortunately my knowledge of colour psychology is limited to "red mad green calm"
I'd be interested to know what kind of colours people think would be best for the agents, and why. Also, if the shifts were at different times would one expect users to desire different colours? (like a night mode in 24 hour use systems)
