    Default ADVICE ON COLOUR SET UP

    I have been checking out differnt portals and see that alot of them have the same colours for the background. I wanted to use something different but am not sure thats the greatest idea. Do I dare to be different?
    I know I need to go with something that's easy to read and that the banners will bring alot to the site. I don't want my site to look to busy. I am useing graey back ground with white and 2 different shades of pink. What do you think?
    I hope to be online soon, like with in the week. (if godaddy can get their act together for some reason it won't let me online) Anyway I can't wait!!!!
    Thanks for all the help so far and an advance thanks for any help in the furture.

    Hi

    I did some research on colors and how they effect the viewer a couple of years ago.

    I will relate what I remember and take it with a grain of salt cause I might have remembered wrong

    it seems to me that they said a bit of orange would tend to trigger a buy out of those that tend to buy things on a whim

    lighter blue was a comfort color;

    too much red was bad, too much black was bad, except as a background

    gold gave impression of money (imagine that!)


    not much, but what I can offer

    good luck

    Hi Jeffey,

    Yep, color definitely makes a BIG difference IMO. We recently switched from a green web site to our current blue and the results have been MUCH better. (we did change the layout a lot too though)

    I am sure there must be some info online about colors and their effects on user emotions, I will have a look and if I find anything I will post it here.

    I guess the nice thing about the this biz is it is relatively easy to change your look and feel if it does not work

    Test, test and keep testing I guess

    Good luck with your site and all the best....

    Yes, I did a total rework on my site colours and added some extra banner space while at it
