21 Breathtaking Examples of Minimal Color Usage in Web Design

Choosing the proper colors for a website is certainly a very important step of the creative process. So deciding to go with hardly any color at all can be a bold move, but if done correctly, it can pay off. For this post we’ve collected 21 Breathtaking Examples of Minimal Color Usage in Web Design. In these examples, you’ll notice that very few colors are used throughout. It’s mainly shades of grays, and a few desaturated colors here and there. This gives the designs a sophisticated look and allows what’s most important (the content) to get the attention it needs.

    I totally agree, like the idea of a minimal color usage in web design, so it could give more emphasis on the content itself for a particular site, simple yet sophisticated. Wonderful list! Thanks for sharing such a useful post.

    Thought this was a great article and with the collection one that will be very useful for me. What I like about this article was that it was about colour which is very important when designing and developing sites. I liked all the examples you have included but the one that stood out for me was the Eephus League Magazine. I love the use of colour in this site, how they have used the white space and then as you scroll down you get hit with areas of colour through the images which really make them stand out. I love everything about the site and through the design it really has that wow factor. This was a great collection and one that will be a constant resource for me for my future design and development projects.
