In web design, there’s a variety of approaches that can be taken when it comes to a web site’s background. For some designs, it might be appropriate to use a pattern or a large image. While on others, a single solid color makes more sense. So for your Monday inspiration this week, we’re showing you web designs that take a simple approach when it comes to backgrounds. In this collection, you’ll see how a large dose of a single color can have a dramatic effect.

    I just love “Red Bowl challenge” design, how everything falls into place with the background, I really like this type of websites, the message is clear, the design is absolutely unique and well done.
    Too bad more sites are not deigned like that, especially in Israel.

    because dramatic effect? I think this is a good collection of site. Some are beautiful examples like “oink” “350 gram”. For me i usually alternate sites with layouts with unique colours or images or gradients. Depends by the client. Thanks for sharing

    How are sites with gradients getting in here – thought it was about single colours!? :D

    The jaypegams.com site looks like a bit of a rip-off of Elliot Jay Stocks’ old site.

    thenewlofi.com uses a crazy bright yellow background but it works really nicely.

    Great stuff, I look a bit of inspiration from similar sites when creating my own online protfolio (illustrationbooth.com – if you want to see the results), but these are on a whole other level! Loving 350gram and Arcade Creative especially.
