Colors in Web Design

1552 Goldcliff Circle, DC (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- It’s fun to play around with a website, especially if you’re into the design part itself. The thing is it’s also pretty easy to lose yourself when you’re letting out your creative juices, your design might go beyond the purpose you need it for. Its fine to be creative when it comes to web design but you should still consider what your visitors might think when they land on your page.

Basically, a website is all about the content rather than the design, but of course you can’t disregard the design altogether. The design itself should compliment what kind of content your website would hold, if your website is about having an active lifestyle then make it in lively colors and show how exuberant life could be. If it’s about relaxation then do it in mild tones that soothes the eyes. Point is, in web design, your design and its colors should complement the main point of your website.

Speaking of colors, there are acceptable colors when it comes to web design and you can play with the more extreme shades but let me warm you it with caution since not everyone like being shocked with a rainbow on their monitor. According to a Los Angeles web design company, Crest Media Inc., a website should have a feel of harmony, if your color themes clash it may distract the visitor from the content or at worst irritate them enough to make them move on to the next website.

Color harmony isn’t that hard to do since there are plenty of other websites as well as programs that can give you a clue on what colors to mix and match and what combinations might hurt your eyes. Avoid striking colors that might shock anyone, this is especially true if you want them to look at text content. Bright colors can distract anyone and that’s not something you’d want when you’re presenting yourself to a prospective client. Anyway, it takes experience to mix and match colors like the websites on this Los Angeles web design company’s works that did a good job at giving their pages the harmony among their chosen colors.
