I saw an infographic the other day titled, “What Your Web Design Says About You” and it talks about how the color Orange sparks more controversy than any other hue. There is usually a strong positive or negative reaction to the color.
So I ask you, Orange, love it or hate it?
Personally I love it!
Honestly, it depends on how it’s used. I do like all colors, but it’s all about placement. Also, about serif fonts being used – well, as you can see, most “newspaper” type websites use serif fonts for headings, which is pretty normal.
Any color can look great if done right. Orange can look great and Gowalla is a testament to that.
Especially when done right, orange can really make things “pop”. It’s warm, smooth, and nice to look at.
Good to know I am not the only one who really likes Orange in designs.
