Color is an important aspect of web design. Good web designers choose color carefully to serve a purpose. Sometimes that purpose is to be bold and get people’s attention, and yellow happens to be an excellent “attention getting” color. Yellow is a high energy color that can evoke mental activity and bring on cheerful thoughts.

For your inspiration, we’ve selected 50 web designs that use yellow effectively. You will notice that some use it to highlight the most important parts of the design, while others use it more abundantly for a bold effect.

    I think this is a really good selection of designs using the colour yellow. Yellow is a really bold colour to use, and i think the best designs have incorporated white and dark grey in well. itswhite.co.uk has used a clever piece of photography in the main design which i think is really good.
    There are some really creative solutions including sebdesign.eu which is one of my favourites.

    Fantastic article!
    I like yellow and it’s good to see what can be done – loving the black/yellow for contrast.

    @ Jordan Walker – don’t eat yellow snow!

    Yellow happens to be one of my favorite colors… that said, not all of these are pleasing to the eye. Some of them actually cause pain to look at. Super-bright yellow is just not a good choice for the dominant color scheme of a website.

    The ones that are softer or more golden in color are much nicer. Bright yellow is also nice as an accent. Only about half of these showcased designs did not make me cringe. My favorite among these designs is WakeSomebodyUp.

    Sometimes it is about knowing how much (or how little) yellow to use. Here’s one for YellaTerra where we kept the yellow to a minimum, for more impact: http://www.yellaterra.com/

    Some really great designs here and good use of yellow – the black and yellow contrasts are very powerful. Yell.com is another brand that does this.

    Those samples of yellow web page designs are really unique if we really compare it to the familiar look of a website which is not that fancy right but the main thing which I have notice in all of those samples is their similarities of being a fancy design site. Is yellow really for intended fancy? Anyways thanks for sharing those inspirational web designs.
