  5. Roni says:

    I see a lot of people stay away from bold colors such as red. I disagree with that! Bold colors can give a website the uniqueness and eye catching attention is is need to stand out.

    Thanks for this post,

  10. joe says:

    thank you for this post

  11. Debarpan says:

    Red is one of my favorite color and all of them red into their theme color.So nice.

  12. John says:

    Indeed such a great collection of sites..wonderful design.

  13. Kevin Oliveira says:

    Saber usar cores como vermelho para sites assim não é pra qualquer designer.

  14. Prestop says:

    Great compilation Chris.

    Few thoughts that came to my mind. Sites that are using dark red or red and black color palette looks better than sites with bright red and white color palette. For example Web Development Group and Paul Woods are both very disturbing to my eyes. I can barely look at their thumbnails here and cannot bring my self to open those sites to view them. These sites are so disturbing. I am not sure if it’s just me or this is the case with everyone. Why they used such a bright color?

  15. Renzo Chim says:

    Some of them are so simple and some are unique and some are a combination.. love all of these collections. It made me inspire to have do My best and learn more about web designing.

  16. Teelah says:

    I definitely got that wow factor with these designs, the boldness is great, I usually always add it as an accent color, but these designs had some brave designers.

    Thanks for the share!

  17. Emily Earhart says:

    Thanks for the amazing collection! Honestly, some examples are not that good, but, some of these are mind blowing. I would like to say one more thing here. Red is my favorite color! Hope you’ll share more examples like these soon with us.

  18. Mick Kennys says:

    My client wants a red design, but know I know that I can change his plans.

    It’s only me or I do not know, but… ARGH MY EYES! :P

    Themes are nice, but I would change it to calmer colors :)

  19. Marianne says:

    Some of these are very striking! But it definitely takes a certain kind of company to pull off this much red. Works for a lot of design companies and food too, but not much else.

  20. Anny says:

    Red is my favourite color.

  21. Bartek says:

    I really like it – great use of red colours .
    Second one is the best also Socialist is great .

  22. Tag Team Design says:

    Love these designs and how each one has its own shade of red. It’s amazing how much you can do with just a color

  23. Chris says:

    Some great examples, but none of them with the use of red give me a wow factor, warmth or interest to review the sites in detail. Some I clicked back in less than a second. Colour sure does play a vital part.

  24. pandita says:

    these are great! :D
