Springtime > Colorful Conclusions

Colorful Conclusions

Whether you are designing for personal or professional reasons, it’s best to start by understanding your message and the audience to whom it is directed. With that information in hand, you are far more likely to make color choices that serve to enhance your message.

Springtime is an excellent example of color design that is completely appropriate for the goals it is meant to achieve: express the transition from winter to spring, bring a touch of calm optimism to the visitor, and ensure that those emotions are expressed to a global audience, which the CSS Zen Garden most assuredly has.

Note

Many people continue to design using the “Web-safe” palette. However, since the majority of computers available today support millions of colors out of the box, following that convention is no longer necessary unless you are designing for a specific demographic. Readers familiar with the Web-safe palette will notice that the colors used in Springtime are well outside the 256 colors it specifies.
