55 Colorful Web Designs to Inspire You

By / Mar 1, 2010 / Inspiration

We’ve already presented here a showcase of clean white web designs, and we’ve also shown you a collection of inspiring dark web designs. Now it’s time to get inspired by color, and by “color”, I mean a website “full of color” – a site with many colorful elements or even just using one or two bold and eye catching colors.

In this selection, we are presenting 55 colorful web designs to inspire you.

    A wonderful collection of design templates. few of these designed are of the same kind but most of these are really unique and has a separate identity. Really a rich resource for the professional web designers as well as for the novices.

    Very inspirational collection ! I like many designs from here :)
    Thanks for sharing with us Gisele !

  • Glen

    This is just what designers need. Visceral impact in inspiration. It’s not until you see a colourful site done well that you understand just how well it can add to the user experience.

    The new billboard site is a good example of colour done well on a corporate level.

  • http://www.ronniesainidesign.com Ronnie Saini

    Really Colorful and Really Inspiring! Great Collection!

  • http://ilovecolors.com.ar Elio

    Thanks Gisele for featuring I Love Colors and thanks also for the list, since there are some great sites that I haven’t seen before :)

  • http://www.simonday.com Simon Day

    Visually these are quite impressive but from a usability perspective they are pretty much all dreadful!

    I look at the page for most of these and I’m left wondering what are they actually about. I think Jakob Nielsen would have nightmares looking at this lot :)

  • http://www.bigtunainteractive.com Adam Hermsdorfer

    Thanks for the inspiration! Simon, most of these sites don’t follow web conventions at all. However, their goal is to showcase their creative abilities. Its from these types of sites that major innovation develops for the rest of the boring web to use.

  • http://instantblueprint.com Hoxxy

    Great list thanx

  • http://baneydesign.com Adam

    Great list! I love color!

  • http://www.crearedesign.co.uk/ Rory

    Very weird…I was reading a blog yesterday showcasing the best in BLACK web design and I claimed I preferred the darker site to colourful ones…HOWEVER seeing some of these I may have to eat my words. Haãfe & Haph is an awesome website.

  • http://www.sjlwebdesign.co.uk Shane

    These sites look amazing. So hard to get the use of bright colours right, but they look so good when the colours work!

    Thanks.

  • http://www.hybridlava.com/ sarfraz raza

    really outstanding collection..amazing list..keep it up!
