As we look around the web, we see so many examples of designers who have brilliantly used color in web design projects to make the page or various page elements really pop. Finding the right color scheme for a website design can often be a real challenge. Bright colors are sometimes not favored by designers, but in the right situation they can be very effective.
The skillfull use of colors is a talent that all designers should possess. When used excessively, a design can look scattered, “rainbow-like”, and distracting. When used too sparingly, a design can look bland.
Below is a showcase of sites where the designers struck that balance nicely. From headers to backgrounds to calls to action and beyond, these bold and beautiful uses of color in web design are sure to inspire you to find interesting ways to wield this powerful element in your next project.
