On occasion I look at websites as a request from other web designers. I am far from perfect myself, but I like to think at least my choice in colors are either:
1. Not clashy and farfetched to put together
2. Do not hurt anyone’s eyes
Now, when I look at a website and my eyeballs want to bleed because the text or some images were too bright, I think that the web designer is:
2. Still discovering color combinations
3. Totally clueless
When using color on a website, especially bright colors, it is important to take the time to carefully choose what colors your site will have and if you are not sure if colors go together, get a second or third opinion. You must consider that some of your users may have eye problems where some colors may wreak havoc on their sight. Here are 7 bright color combinations I recommend avoiding in web design. They are merely color palettes as I did not want to embarrass anyone who might be using them. However, I have seen these used together. I apologize if your eyes bleed on a few of these.
Are there other bright color combinations that you might suggest avoiding?
