Examples of Purple in Web Design

April 27, 2011 in Inspiration

When you think of most websites, purple is the color you may think of the least.  Some designers have embraced this and made their sites stand out from the rest.  In this post I will share with you 17 websites that make use of the color purple.

    This is a really interesting and beautiful spread of purple websites. In my opinion the colour can fuse together the aspects of style and creativty remarkably well without compromising on the professional look and “feel” of a website.

    Although of course the mark of a truly quality graphic designer should be able to achieve this balance with whatever colour you opt for!

    Not to sound cliche or anything, but these make me want to go out and create a purple website!! haha.. Like you say, purple is one of those colors that people shy away from – possibly because it’s associated with frustration (or so i’ve heard)..
    Anyway, these designs are marvelous! Thank you for sharing!

    Mind blowing color friend..previously many thought pastel colored shade as the best for the their best. But it is the time to switch, BLACK, CHERRY RED are all on, but nothing is as good as our “PURPLE”..CremaLab is simply GREAT..and I liked the site of Wes Bos – http://wesbos.com/, but the second one is a bit clumsy (no hard feelings please)!!

    Thanks friend for the wonderful collection :)
