50 Gorgeous Color Schemes From Award-Winning Websites

50 Gorgeous Color Schemes From Award-Winning Websites | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it

Color is such a fundamental part of the way we perceive the world that we often take it for granted. Think about it: From the youthful and vivid orange on someone’s attire to the gray and gloomy sky above us, colors have the power to mold our perceptions of others and even the circumstances we find ourselves in.


This is why one of the most powerful tools in a designer’s arsenal is color. It can either make or break a design; it can be the determining factor in engaging viewers or sending them promptly on their way.


As a non-designer, I often find it difficult to find just the right colors for my amateur projects. Whether I’m creating a simple image to support my content or more elaborate projects such as a slide deck or infographic, I frequently spend a good amount of time looking for the perfect color scheme. I ask myself questions like: Do I want my design to be inviting? Provocative and bold? Or intelligent and elegant?


Unless you’re a seasoned designer, it takes time and effort to find a color combination that works, which is why the design team at Visme decided to provide our users with a handy list of beautiful color schemes from websites that have been recognized by Awwwards, the most prestigious award for Web designers and developers....

Say Cheese for These 7 Free Stock-Photo Sites | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it

Whether you promote content that is fresh or seasonal, evergreen or topical, your endeavor will be meaningless if it doesn’t make your readers sizzle and pop with excitement. How do you capture the attention of your audience without crafting content from scratch?

Perhaps all you need is a high-quality photo. Not a bland, lifeless image, but an attention-grabbing picture — one with a story behind it. Maybe you need a series of compelling images if you’re marketing a lengthy content piece.

Research shows that:

  • Color visuals increase a person’s willingness to go through a content piece by 80%.
  • Posts or articles with images receive 94% more views than posts or articles without images.
  • Understanding of content jumps from 70% to 95% with the integration of images....

John Dalziel's curator insight, July 28, 2016 5:29 AM
There’s quite a few apps and services out there that make it easy to convert colour photos to black and white or to retain just a splash of colour. But what if you wanted to go in the opposite direction and add colour to a black and white photo? There aren’t many easy ways to do this, but thanks to a new service from Algorithma, it just got a lot easier. 
Users can... 
► paste an URL of a black and white photo available online (make sure the URL ends with .jpg for it to work) or 
► upload an image from their computer 
...and then hit the "Colorize It" button 
NOTE - The colourisation definitely varies from image to image. With some black and white photos, users will get a very subtle, sepia colourisation that makes it look like a vintage photo with subtle hints of colour. 
 With other photos that have a large amount of sky or grass in them, they'll get an impressively accurate rendering. 
Well worth trying...
