25 Websites Designed with a Limited Color Palette

Read the full post

As one of the main design principles, colour is an important factor to consider when building a website, especially since it’s one of the main tools that allows you to add character and relate the site to a specific brand. Sometimes the best designs only make use of a select number of colours, providing consistency throughout the whole page. Today’s web design roundup showcases 25 well designed websites that are all created with a limited colour palette, these sites use just 3-4 colours throughout the whole design, reusing the same swatches from the colour scheme for backgrounds, text, and titles.

    Really neat set of websites, Never though about the importance of color choices till now, next design we implement, we will have to definitely think about going minimal set of colors.. 3- 4 colors looks great to associate with a brand.
