    Agree! We’re a proponent and a practitioner. Blacks and dark gray can be an elegant way to stand apart from the crowd. And when you do use a bright color it’s like a ‘subtle pop’.

    These are nice and some are stunning, but I still find it hard going to use, as distinct from view, these dark background sites. The contrasts for text run from too hot to almost indistinct.

    Love these examples of dark web page designs, especially the textures and shadows which are used to make the designs much more interesting.

    I think dark web designs are great if your going for a dramastic yet sleek approach, and agreeing with John using a touch of colour definitely gives that “subtle pop”.

    A wonderful collection of light challenged designs. I really like the Pointless Corp website. Maybe its just their logo, something about a bear on a bicycle. Thanks for putting them up. ~ Chris

    This goes to show that dark websites look great when designed properly. I really like the background of the East Village Eatery, and its something that is easy to create. I will definitely use these as an inspiration towards dark websites.

    The Night Owl Interactive got my attention! Black goes nicely with other different colors in one page, as it makes the colored image, fonts, etc stand out.
