25 Beautifully Colorful Websites – Part 2

A few months ago I posted a collection of beautifully colorful websites, and I wanted to follow up with 25 more sites that provide excellent inspiration when working with colors. The 25 sites displayed here use a wide variety of design styles, but all make effective use of color to create a fabulous look that leaves an impact on visitors.

    I quite like a few of them, which is strange for me. Colourful is very easy to go overboard with or get totally ‘wrong’ and the majority of colourful sites do this. It’s great to see a collection of sites that get it right!

  • Pasquale, May 13, 2008

    Cheers for the feature!!

  • Fubiz, May 13, 2008

    Congrats.

  • Shanna, May 13, 2008

    another great list!! Thanks for putting these lists together.

  • Lisa, May 13, 2008

    Definitely websites that my eyes are drawn too. Keep up the great work!

  • Mepho, May 13, 2008

    Nice group of websites! Keep up the work~!

  • Pierce, May 13, 2008

    Thanks :)

  • Kelly, May 13, 2008

    A very nice group. I especially like Cottonseed Oil, Sharpcast, and Radu Cueca. As Mothership said, colorful can easily be too much. These are bright and cheerful, but still restrained enough to be appealing to a wide audience. Well-chosen!

    Regards,

    Kelly

  • Alen, May 14, 2008

    Amazing collection, Steven!

  • Bagrep, May 14, 2008

  • Louie, May 14, 2008

    Moshimonsters will nicely fit this category. :)

  • adelle, May 14, 2008

    Nice selection you have here!

  • exfatguy, May 14, 2008

    That is some great web design templates. Wish I could hire someone to do exactly like those sites. Anyone?

  • Warren, May 15, 2008

    thanks for posting these. Always nice to find some new inspirational design.

  • JD, May 15, 2008

    Beautiful Websites.
    So many web designers are using great fresh color in their graphics designs.

  • Nastya Manno, May 16, 2008

    This excellent compilation of inspiring sites. Thank you very much!

  • VeraBradley, May 16, 2008

    Honestly, i dislike a website that uses too many different colours. I’m not sure how many percentage of visitors are like be, but a uniform and clean webpage that uses less than 5 colours stands out better in terms of legibility and professionalism.

  • zohai, May 16, 2008

    Some of it really is great but some are too colourful and to my dislike. Eg: Casio Exilim Lab

    But using multiple colours surely won’t make a person bored and gains the audience’s attention. And it caters to the younger generation IMO

  • traveler, May 16, 2008

    fusion looks great! nice simple stylish!

  • Eshop, May 16, 2008

    I would pink Mostly Lisa’s page the best because i has a blue eyed girl picture in front that is most probably Lisa. hahaha

    Always nice to find some new inspirational design.

  • HostV, May 19, 2008

    Wish I could hire someone to do exactly like those sites. Anyone?

  • fatsgone, May 19, 2008

    Wow so colorful! Kind of psychedelic and makes my head spin. Agreed, too much color is not a good thing. But when done with restraint, it an be a very potent source of attraction to potential viewers.

  • Ant Sir Pest, May 20, 2008

    Awesome post! I like seeing sites that use alot of color, but don’t look corny or overdone. Very nice list. Thanks.
