Green sites showcase

This is the third article of our color series of articles. Back in July we had an interview with Igor Asselbergs, renowned color expert with over 20 years of experience who blogs on livelygrey.com and is the current CEO of Colorjinn, a company that develops digital colors tools.

We then had a beautiful showcase of red websites, emphasizing what we previously discussed about red with mr. Asselbergs. It is now time to move forward. Therefor we will now talk about green nuances and we will also showcase beautiful websites that use such color tones.

Green. What about it?

Green is not a primary color, but is created by combining blue (cyan) and yellow. The complement of green is magenta, which is a combination of blue and red. We chose for this article green exactly because it is the complement of red. It is an additive color which combined with blue and red will produce white light.

Green is generally used to point out validity, permission and alike. This is exactly the opposite of red, which is generally used to point out errors, forbidden actions etc. If contrast is powerful enough, the best bet would be using green for call to action buttons, emphasized links or in forms while validating data.
