Minimal and Contrasty Color Schemes in Web Design

Making a web design with contrasty colors will allow for a better focus on certain areas of a web site. With a minimal color scheme, more contrast can be achieved and with the right complementary color, a unique and impactful visual impression is given.

Creating a web design with contrasty colors will allow for a better focus on certain areas of a web site. With a minimal color scheme, more contrast can be achieved and with the right complementary color, a unique and impactful visual impression is given.

We want to show you some great and inspiring examples of minimal and contrasty color schemes in web sites where only a few colors are used with a complementary additional one (or two). Enjoy!

    Thanks for the post, there are some really great sites here, making it difficult to pick a favourite one! I love the creativity behind Jim Hoskins site and the simplicity of Lynda Dongs site, this is by far the best round up of sites iv seen in a long time. Keep the good posts coming!

    The colors blend just right. Your collection reminds me of my professor way back in college. He told me that, I must use two to three colors when designing a website because it’s more neat, formal and simple.

    Great selection of sites, Mary-Lou. Some beautiful work out there! CL designz needs to change “produce” to “produces”, though. Howling typo!!
