Orange Website Showcase

Orange Website Showcase

Color Wheel Pro says:Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Nevertheless, orange is not as aggressive as red. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Orange is the color of fall and harvest. In heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.

Orange has very high visibility, so you can use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your design. Orange is very effective for promoting food products and toys.

Dark orange can mean deceit and distrust.
Red-orange corresponds to desire, sexual passion, pleasure, domination, aggression, and thirst for action.
Gold evokes the feeling of prestige. The meaning of gold is illumination, wisdom, and wealth. Gold often symbolizes high quality.

    Nice websites! Traffik is my favorite, I love the way the “bokeh” background moves.

    Great roundup and excellent examples. I’m always afraid to use orange in my designs, thinking its going to be too overpowering (although I still always want to.) This is great inspiration and guidance for creating my next orange design!

    I think Orange sites are best for SPA or even shopping sites. This is my personal opinion.

  21. Transport mobila said on August 9, 2010

    I know it might seem orange is not good for all kind of sites, but you give a bit more time in choosing the exact orange you want, it’s going to be very easy to remember by your visitor, and very calm as well.

  22. Hostess said on November 9, 2010

    I don’t know if I recommend it. I do not know if I ever saw an orange website. I mean with a few colors including orange, of course but only orange and white or black. I don’t see it.
