Choosing a good color scheme for your website could be a scary thing- especially if you’re not confident about your color coordination ability, or feel that you’re not a skilled designer.
My husband is slightly color blind, which makes him very nervous whenever he tries to pick a color for anything!
What about you?
- What color should you use for your logo or headline?
- Do you know how to pick complementary colors that combine well?
- Which part of your website should you use color?
Picking and mixing color can be a tricky game.
The result can look harmonious, or like a scene straight out of a horror film!
If you avoid any colors, your website can look uninspiring and forgettable. If you use too much color on your website, you risk making it look tacky.

To match my brand for my promotional website I will have to use my corporate colours that I chose to represent me through my monogram and visual mark, I chose these colours as they describe me, I am bright and happy and love the use of bright and bold colours. I love how the purple can be cerated by overlaying the two main colours, I actually did not know this until i accidentally laid them over each other creating this subtle purple colour. I also love this colour palette more when the transparency is turned down just a little, as the colours are bright and bold but subtle to the eye.
