Colors for your website
The 60 – 30 – 10 Rule, which has been used by designers for years.
Pick three colors and use them in ratios of 60%, 30% and 10% respectively.
- The 60% will be the primary color of your site and set the overall tone of your design.
- The 30% should contrast with the 60% to create a visually striking effect.
- The 10% is an ‘accent color’, which should complement either your primary or secondary color.
Here are the typical impressions commonly associated with some basic colors to help you start.
