  • Elegant or Boring? Gray Color in Website Design

    Did you know that the human eye is able to distinguish something around 500 shades of gray? The range of gray lies between two non-colors – black and white. The darker a gray is the more black-like it is, and the lighter tones of gray are growing into white. Depending on the intensity of the color, it has been loaded with various meanings. Light gray shades are very neutral, they are perfect for a background design. Usually, light gray doesn’t evoke negative emotions, and, to be honest, it feels emotionless in most cases. On the other side, dark gray symbolizes mourning, depression, grief – strong emotions. The wide range of gray shades and their associated effects allow us to claim this color to be one of the most versatile and unpredictable.

  • WebComponents.org: All About The Future of The Web

    Web Components were the craze for a while. As with all standardization projects, as time passes, the effect wears off. In 2012 standardization of the web components specs felt near.

  • Red Color in Web Design: Provocative or Attractive?

    The color red is the most sexy, passionate and provocative. In the color psychology, red symbolizes energy, love and emotions. A man gives red roses to a girl he is in love with; when a girl is in love she secretly draws red hearts in her diary. Another positive meaning of the red color is appetite stimulation. It is nothing but suitable for a food industry to use red, as for example red accents in the interior design of a restaurant or red colored tableware. Red has also a negative meaning: it is aggressive, it symbolizes anger and hatred; it is the color of war and blood. Still, if to think negatively and be pessimist, one can find bad side in everything. Let me ask you one primitive thing: don’t men like watching girls walking on the street in hot red dresses? Aren’t red lips tempting and magnetizing? This is how red turns to be provocative, but in a good sense of it.
