There’s nothing like a pop of color to welcome people to your site.
It takes a good designer to create an bold and colorful site – choosing the wrong color palette or hues that simply don’t match can leave your site looking gaudy and tasteless. And too many colors can leave your visitors confused, especially if they can’t easily find what they are looking for.
But when used wisely, color has the ability to affect the mood of your visitors. Makes people feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed with blue hues or sell your sales pitch with an aggressive shade of red.
Whatever color scheme you choose, a great deal of creativity goes into designing a bold and colorful theme.
To get you inspired, I’ve gathered a collection of stunning WordPress themes that make great use of strong color. Many of the designs feature flat design and responsive layouts – both hot trends right now.
