The color of what?  The indicator?  The color of the indicator will not tell you about the strength of the acid or base.  It will only tell you if it is an acid or a base.  The color of pH paper may, or may not tell you something of the strength.  Strong acids and bases will dissociate completely and weak ones will not.
