Color of the Web: Purple

Color of the Web: Purple

Today we start a series of posts called color of the web in which we will feature a different color every week along with a lot of web design inspiration. Starting out with the color purple, here you will see some purple color paletts and 20 great purple websites.

Purple is not close to being one of the most used colors of the web, that’s the reason why purple websites get an extra attention when they come around. We automatically recognize that as being something different, and that’s what a lot of designers seek when they use the color purple, in order stand out from the crowed as everyone else is stuck on the basic colors.

In human color psychology, purple is also associated with royalty and nobility which makes a purple website very elegant if well designed.

Here you can see some color pallets that work well having purple as the main colors:
