Below you will find html color charts, design tips and links to helpful websites.


Design colors have changed over the years.  Dark blue used to be the "go to" color for websites, but now we are seeing websites in every color of the rainbow.  The charts on this page are very useful for picking out the perfect colors for your website or blog.  The colors you choose say a lot about your personality and style.   Blue is often associated with stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, and intelligence.  Dark Blue is still a great color for a business looking website, but other colors such as olive green (shades of green are seen as tranquil and refreshing) or steel gray (Gray is timeless, practical and solid) can have a positive effect, without looking like every other business website out there. 

Color choice is more than picking out your favorite color. The use of color is the most important aspect of aesthetically pleasing website and graphic design. This also extends to other fields such as colors in logos and retail display. When placed next to each other, complementary colors make each other appear brighter. On an artistic color wheel, complementary colors are placed opposite one another. The complement of each primary color (red, blue, or yellow) is roughly the color made by mixing the other two in a subtractive system: red complements (blue + yellow) = green, blue complements (red + yellow) = orange, and yellow complements (red + blue) = violet.

Color Wheel

A color wheel (or a color circle) is a visual representation of colors arranged according to their chromatic relationship.

Begin a color wheel by positioning primary hues equidistant from one another, then create a bridge between primaries using secondary and tertiary colors.

Don't underestimate the power of a stark black and white design with splashes of bright color. There are several neutral shades of gray that can compliment any color scheme. Don't forget the use of "white space", which can be a major design element in itself.

CMYK Colors for Print

Commercial printing presses print with ink instead of light, and therefore produce a different range of color. Because of this, it is necessary to convert all RGB colors to the 4-color printing process, also called CMYK - Cyan (C), Magenta (M), Yellow (Y), and Black (K).
