We often assume the more detail we put into our website designs the better they will be, but great design doesn’t always have to include all the bells and whistles. This post showcases a variety of sites that are based on solid colour backgrounds. You won’t see a gradient, texture or pattern but all these sites boast great design.

  1. Very nice examples! Shows that it's possible to make the whole website appealing by just using few colours :)

  2. Sam Jones says:

    Nice showcase, I love that combination of green and orange on Jacob Lee's site.

  3. Vinay Bhat says:

    I'd like to add another website to this list:

  4. E.Meechie says:

    'like Kicksend – thought the shade of blue that it used can be too strong for the eye, but, no …

    Great collection, as usual. Thanks!

  5. Hello! I miss one… stunning solid red color background with amazing illustration in unique 4 columns design, worth to check out =)

  6. Love the thinness of Tim Potter's site

  7. Really cool showcase! Living proof, not every website needs absolute detail. Less is more. :D

  8. Really great collection of simple, solid-color web design backgrounds. They're all nice.

  9. Seo Surrey says:

  13. Jason says:

    Man. This is why i always strive of minimalism with clients…
    Oh and Tim Potter's site was pure madness…and by madness i mean awesome

  14. One thing that interests me is that these websites make single solid colors look like gradients.

  15. I really like Kenneth Cachia's site. The transitions between pages are nice and the change of colour on scroll is a neat feature I've not seen before.

  21. I love Fuzzco Design Style.. Especially for those images

  22. Deb Esling says:

    I think the design for NAKS is spot on. For a site offering "totally naked food," having a streamlined website is perfect. Thanks for the list. Lots of creativity!
