When working on a new website, getting the client to narrow down their choice of colours is a great place to start.
There are many online resources for designers to explore, tweak and download great color combinations for their projects.
Playing with complementary, analogous, monochromatic and other combinations opens us to exciting possibilities, and there’s no shortage of freebies.
Choosing colors is the first step in the website design process. Adapting them to fit your design requirements is just as important.
What looks good in a sample may not work well on a web page—but that doesn’t mean you have to return to square one.
Color plays an important role in how people absorb content. Whether a design is reserved or loud, friendly or sinister, warm or cool, visitors to a website are immediately influenced by the tone set by the layout, typography, imagery and, of course, the hues and values that comprise its color scheme.
Choosing colors can be the most subjective job in web design. Some colors work well together; others, not so much. Some combinations appeal to certain people. More than one set of colors can suit the same design.
Fortunately, many resources exist to help. Color palette generators such as Color Scheme Designer, Adobe Kuler, Aviary Toucan and Daily Color Scheme are among the great places to find combinations of color that effectively set a mood. But finding a palette is only the first step. Any color scheme’s potential effectiveness can be compromised by the way it is applied.
What better way to start the New Year than with a great story like this about a new addition to the Peak Support family!
We’re due a huge congratulations to our very own Dan Broatch who is now proud father of Emmie Broatch, a beautiful little baby girl. It was apparent from the moment she was born that she’d make an excellent addition to the Peak Support team, her face showed interest in anything technological. She showed signs of aggression towards Apple’s (pun dearly intended, of course) and everytime you say Microsoft; she smiles! No, we’re only kidding but really from all the Peak Support Team we would like to extend our congrats and blessings to the family and hope them all happiness in the future.
