When it comes to web design, one of the first things you will decide on is the colour scheme. From company colours, to Pantone’s “Classic Blue” colour of the year, there are a number of different colour choices to make. Generally, you should never use more than 3 colours on a website, using one colour for the background, and another for the key features, or accents. Although the year has only just begun, there are several different emerging colour trends for 2020 already. But what are these colour trends? And how can you use them? Well, here at Pumpkin Web Design Manchester, we are Manchester’s leading web design professionals. We work with a variety of companies across Manchester, and the North West, including those in Blackburn and Chorley, to provide high quality web design solutions. And this is our guide to everything you should know about effective colour trends for the year ahead.
What are the emerging colour trends for 2020?
Some of the most popular emerging colour trends for 2020 include:
- Combining mint green with navy blue- this is a very stylish colour combination that can allow you to create stunning and striking accent features. The deep navy blue has long been associated with reliability and stability. While the mint green speaks of fresh growth and embracing new twists. Combined, this can have a very powerful effect on your company branding and marketing. To get the most out of these two colours professionally, you should consider using navy as the predominant background colour, with mint as the secondary accent colour.
- Black and lime green- deep, dark colours have been establishing a foothold in effective wed design over the past few years. But the most effective results always combine dark colours, with lighter, brighter more vibrant colour choices. Like black paired with lime green. The brightness of the lime is toned down by the depth of the black, which gives this colour combination a sophisticated, professional edge. This works effectively with either colour as the predominant feature, although for websites with more of the background exposed, the black background can be a better option.
- Orange and teal- the colours of summer are back with a passion this year. It’s no secret that orange and teal have been used extensively across Instagram especially, over recent years. But for web design, this colour combination is a first. And by taking the orange colour, and using a deeper, richer, more burnt tone, combined with a more minty green shade of teal, you can bring a fresh edge to this colour combination. This is because this makes use of more earthy tones, which are set to be very popular throughout the year ahead.
