Colour in Web Design – Green
Green signifies nature and the environment. The word has even taken on a brand new meaning; an attitude of being environmentally friendly and socially responsible, subsequently resulting in a whole host of websites making use of the colour green to portray such a consumer friendly image.
The colour green is also synonymous with peace and renewal, again making it a popular colour with designs that aim to reflect on this green movement that the world currently seems to be experiencing.
Conversely, harsher tones of green can represent jealousy and envy whereas more vibrant tones can create a slick, exciting feel to a design. Such tones are best used in moderation for emphasis whilst lighter, more natural shades can be very effective when used in high volume, as this wonderful collection demonstrates.
