    Default Website Color Combo

    Hi,

    Could anyone suggest the best option for designing a website with the following combo:

    00FF00
    FF0000
    FFFFFF
    00BFFF

    Apologies if the colors seem a bit weird. This combo was requested by the client, and my skills are more leaning towards the development side, as opposed to creativity and design.

    Thanks

    Ashish

    What do you mean by "best option"? which colors go best together?

    00FF00
    FF0000
    FFFFFF <-- this one
    00BFFF <-- and this one, imo.

    If you're asking something else, please be more specific.

    Your question is unclear.
    Please provide more information, and be as specific as possible.
    • What do you want to accomplish?
    • What have you already tried?
    • What problems did you encounter?

    Please be sure that you have included all relevant code and/or a link to the page in question.
    You might also consider making a reduced test case using an online tool like jsfiddle

    Yes I agree with traq. The blue and white has a more corporate/calming feel (especially when white is used as the base, with blue for menu bars, header, footer, etc), but then again, it depends on what your client does and what image they want to portray. Amongst the blue/white, red could work well for links to make them stand out? (that's very similar in fact to one of my older sites: http://www.pennyacres.derbyshire.sch.uk/ ). Of all the colours, the green seems most off-at-a-tangent, although maybe you could make a small nod to it in icons, or a:hover, or something else discrete.
