Choose A Colour That Suits Your Brand

There are many things to think about when you create a website. One of the most important is the look and feel you want to create. How the website looks affects the person visiting it.

Once you’ve decided the tone and style of your website or blog, it’s time to choose the colours that reflect this. This handy image shows how basic colours affect people.

When you choose a template for your website, make sure you’re choosing the correct one for you and your audience.

At Writers Write, our motto is: Write to communicate. This means that we want to keep it simple. We do not have an elaborate, flowery style. It makes sense that our colours are black and white. This also works for the saying ‘in black and white’, which means ‘in writing’.

You will often see blue used in logos and websites because it projects trustworthiness. Companies like Coca Cola use red for energy and excitement. Apple has chosen white for simplicity.
