What role does colour play in web design? Can it determine the effectiveness of the message and the manner in which it’s perceived? Through the years, we’ve figured out that colour is one of the biggest web design essentials.
We’ve been giving our clients access to quality web design services for some time. Recently, we decided to go through all of our projects and pick a few of those to demonstrate how colour can be used to deliver a certain message and to influence the audience in a particular way.
Presented under the motto GFR Pro is more secure, user friendly and fool proof than the system you’re currently using, this website’s message is fresh and vibrant. The website is dedicated to an innovative product, which is why the web design has been kept clean and trendy.
Colours were chosen to make the motto even more noticeable and to create the right type of brand identity. The logo itself features three tones green, blue and pink. These have been tied in the homepage design, making the corporate identity thoroughly consistent.
ICMI Speakers and Entertainers is a corporate website that comes with certain gravity. When looking for web design services, the client emphasised on the corporate image, the quality and the sophistication of the service being offered.
To deliver this message to the audience, we chose a colour scheme consisting of red and grey. Grey is a neutral and serious colour. It’s not obtrusive and at the same time, it gives every website a bit of sophistication and seriousness. The red stands out and it has a regal undertone. Needless to say, the web design and the colour selection were both a huge success with the client.

We’ve chosen dark blue as the main colour for several reasons. Blue is a ‘serious’ colour that many people tie to successful corporations.

The background has been kept clean, allowing the main colour to stand out.
