Gradient Effects in Web Designs - Using color gradients, or effects that transition two or more colors with one another, is one of the most popular design techniques in web design. They’re easy to create yet hard to get right. In this showcase, you’ll witness some of the best examples of using color gradients in the hopes of inspiring you in your own designs.
Being able to create transitional effects using two or more colors layered with one another is a vastly utilized technique in web design. Color gradients sometimes can be extremely easy to create, while others can be somewhat difficult and require discipline.Below we’ve compiled a showcase (to inspire you) that contains various websites with a variety of gradient effects. Some of the effects will be within the background of the site while others will be located within several other elements of design such as the menu, sidebars, footers, and more.
This time I will showcase and analyze gradient effects used effectively in web-design and logo design creation. It’s very important to create and use subtle and eye-catchy color combinations and transitions to achieve modern and stylish effect. Maybe you haven’t noticed but light and shadow effects are widely used and it doesn’t necessary mean just color, but to bring greater effect, use textures and then put on them light but observable transparent color effects and you’ll see magic happening. Using light you can easily emphasize places and actually lead visitor’s attention from point to point using just color, illustrations, text size.
Using Gradient effect in modern web design is a effective way to give a perfect look to a website and is a very popular technique among web designers. Adding a gradient effect is not a difficult task but if you get it right it can enhance your website look. One of the other reason why designers use gradients is because gradients soften areas that would otherwise be flat color/tone.
Gradients are a great way to add interest, color, and even depth to a web design. You can use the same color in many shades, many shades of many colors or several other combinations you may think of. You can go linear or radial. The point is that gradients are beautiful and can give your website a very unique style. You can use a cool gradient for the whole website design, or only in the header, footer or just in a couple elements of it, but I’m pretty sure about one thing: combining the right colors and shades will make you a gradient lover! You will start using gradients all over, maybe even at your dinning room wall.
