Post by Alison Knott | Last Updated: May 11, 2021

Who doesn’t love to learn more about colour in web design?

The fine folks over at SatelliteWP asked me to weigh in on the topic as a guest blogger.

Indeed, we all tend to take colour for granted, especially our skills in working with it. However, a few designer trade secrets can turn your colour efforts from ‘meh’ to ‘holy wow’. Especially to help with conversions. “Looking good” should never overshadow the need for content that converts, and my article outlines a few ways to use colour for maximum return. Some topics I cover include:

  • Neat, free tools you can use to dive deeper into colour selection and use
  • How to tell if your colour combinations are doing your site a disservice
  • Tips on what parts of a website to apply accent colour to
