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. :)

Agreed that any color can look good if done right. I think orange is easier to screw up than say blue or green.

That being given, I’m a big fan of orange when done right.

Especially when done right, orange can really make things “pop”. It’s warm, smooth, and nice to look at.
