20 Powerful High Contrast Black & White Web Designs

Read the full post

Designing a website using just black and white provides the highest contrast possible between text and background elements. Combined with black and white photography, this produces powerful designs that grab the attention of the viewer and draws them in with their seductive qualities. In today’s showcase I round up 20 beautiful examples of monochromatic website designs that master the use of black and white in their interfaces.

  2. ZAM says:

    Thats indeed a very rare set of design inspiration.

    While doing a redesign for my portfolio(http://www.terminalalterego.com) I too had something of these sort in mind. The power of black and white and the contrast it creates for the content.

  3. Very inspiring and attractive list of websites.. Black and white colors make for each other because black and white color is attractive look to anything..

  4. Jim says:

    When did it become a rule that all creative agencies have to use the line “WE ARE ___________” as the banner on their websites? As soon as I see that line I always assume they aren’t really that creative after all.

    Thanks for the roundup! What really captured my attention was the first two examples. I love that the composer website made use of a well-chosen grayscale background image to immediately tell you what the site is about. The Centralway “Numbrs” was a head-scratcher: it didn’t look like a banking app to me. They probably went to modern / minimalist with this one.

  12. Courtney says:

    At risk of sounding like a total nob, I think that black and white has such elegance and modernism to it. I don’t know, I’m pretty minimalistic myself but I feel like you can do no wrong with plain ol’ B&W

    I’m loving this return to the ‘back to basics’ attitude towards design. For too long we’ve had too many colors, shapes and way too much noisy content. Black and white designs in the main look very contemporary and creative. Loving the Tobias van Schneider site…

  19. i think the colorful PLAIN would be better

  20. Arbaz K says:

    Hello

    black and white contrast is nice but I think you can create contrast by other colors too , such as blue and red for example to make a website more cheerful.

    Thanks
