Dark backgrounds

There is a long ongoing debate on whether dark backgrounds are a good thing for webpages. However, they are making their way back again.

If you can pull it off, it can make for a very stand out, cutting edge look. It will also make sure and pops of colour shine through, making it perfect to show off products.

If you have ever visited Apple’s website lately, you will have seen how sleek and sophisticated it can look. They have been using it instead of white since the launch of the iPhone X.

Pastels have been popular all around lately. ‘Millennial pink’ and the winner of Pantone’s 2019 colour of the year, ‘Living Coral’ are examples of hugely popular colours. So, it is no surprise that they have blossomed into web design, too.
