Big and Bold – one of the growing means nowadays to catch the viewers’ attention. Bold colored websites are fast becoming a trend because of its ability to catch the attention of the readers due to their size and boldness. That is why websites that adapt bold texts using catchy taglines have become more and more prevalent.
How do designers achieve this? In the present trends, if you want to make a blindingly unforgettable statement, you need a few things:
- A saturated color scheme which is bright enough to catch one’s interest without blinding him or her
- An awesome and probably mind-blowing image (a photograph or a graphic illustration)
- A uniquely remarkable tagline.
Those, however, are not easily achieved. To attain a beautiful, bold color design, you need to think it through. You also need some design skills and a great deal of guts.

So, to cut the chase, I present you the examples of beautifully done bold color scheming designs. I hope that it will somehow shed us some inspiration on how to use these colors effectively.
Bold and big, these websites are genuine examples of designs that focus on the subtle and little things: colors, fonts and placement. These little things result into drastic effects in a design.
