Small business website mistakes: Colour overload

When it comes to creating a website, it can be tempting to cram in as many colours as possible to make it eye-catching. Although bright colours can look great, there are many sites on the web which overdo it. Take a look at the examples below and see what to avoid when designing your small business website.

Who got it wrong:

Penny Juice


This web designer seems to have crammed in every colour they could think of. The site is for a child-related product so can be forgiven for being a little bright, but the rainbow effect has definitely been overdone.

Who got it right:

Mother Goose


This is another child-related site, created with bOnline. Bright colours are still used, but they are much more subtle and easy on the eyes. It just shows that your website can be eye-catching and fun without going overboard.
