A great article in design trends for 2013, Posted by Luke Clum
Just like every other element of web design, color palettes follow fads that are constantly evolving. This year’s color trends are as diverse as they are compelling; brights and neons combine with greyscale to add some zing to clean, modern styles, while pastel palettes lend a softness to playful, cartoony designs. And from one end of the line to the other, color blocking in any hue has been enthusiastically employed.
What’s great about this new crop of color trends is that they all combine seamlessly with UI considerations, helping to distinguish important elements and break up sections as well as conveying a style or mood.
