Do you find it hard to choose color schemes for your Web designs? It is a question I get asked often. An effective color scheme can make or break your Web site. If it doesn't convey the personality you are trying to achieve, you may end up alienating the people you are trying so hard to get to notice you.
In my quest to design successful, attractive Web sites, I spend a lot of time picking colors. Making sure colors coordinate well with each other is not an easy task. But, with the right tools and a good sense of what looks right, you can achieve the look and feel you desire.
Color has the power to make us feel hungry, cool, warm, excited, sexy, joyful, sad. Can you imagine the world without color?
1. RED: warmth, love, anger, danger, boldness, excitement
2. ORANGE: cheerfulness, low cost, affordability
3. YELLOW: attention-grabbing, comfort, liveliness, cowardliness
4. GREEN: durability, reliability, environmental, luxurious, optimism, well-being
5. BLUE: professionalism, loyalty, reliability, honor, melancholia, boredom
6. PURPLE: power, royalty, elegance, artificial
7. GRAY: conservatism, traditionalism, intelligence, serious, dull, uninteresting
8. BROWN: relaxing, confident, casual, reassuring, earthy
9. BLACK: Elegance, sophistication, formality, strength, illegality, depression, morbidity
10. WHITE: Cleanliness, purity, newness, virginity, peace, innocence, simplicity, sterility
The above associations are not universal. Depending on the country, different colors can mean different things. If you are designing a Web site for an international audience, it is crucial that you pay particular attention to choosing your color schemes. Choosing the wrong colors may prove detrimental to the success of your Web site.
