Coming up with the right color palette for a web design can be one of the most important parts of the design process, and also one of the most difficult. Usually existing branding has the biggest influence on what colors are used, but other factors can come into play as well. For example, the tone and mood you want to set for the site’s visitors is determined primarily by color. For this post, we’ve gathered a collection of sites that use color in a big way and are guaranteed to provide you with big inspiration.

    Great collection here. Having a bright color palette takes a basic website and makes it unforgettable. My two favorites here are Click BBO because of their mix of vintage-looking logo design and Brown Owl Creative for they way they subdue that bright pink by mixing typography in white.

    Pigeon one is nicely done. There rests use photos, which is kinda take away the idea of being colorful. But they are good choices. Awesome list.

    It doesn’t matter how great your website is, including profanity in the text (especially on the homepage headline) looks *very* unprofessional. I’m sure many clients would immediately hit the “back” button. I suggest Poppin makes a quick text change before it loses too much business.

      I disagree. Perhaps Poppin is not trying to be professional?. It’s a fun and productive to-do list app. It looks like they’re trying to be different and stand out from the crowd, and going by your response it looks like they have succeeded.

    Pigeon is lovely! I love bold use of colours in web design. I think ours can be a nice example too.
