Choosing the right colour

Choosing the right colour

The process of choosing the right colour for your website design should be seperated into four major steps:

1. First, define the goal and mood of your design.
2. Then choose the colour that expresses best the particular mood.
3. Afterwards, play with the swatches and create colour themes.
4. Finally, refine your options down to the best possible scheme.

If on the other hand, you do not have the time to experiment on the best colour scheme you can use for your website, there are alternatives. There are many colour resources online. You can mix and match your colours easily by using one of the following urls:

    It will depend on the way you look at it and where you will be coming from on the subject really. In the long run beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I’m with you on this one.
