Showcase of Rainbow Elements in Web Design

One of the best sources of inspiration for artists and designers is nature. You can see lots of artwork inspired by nature, artists and designers use colors, textures, objects and photos of nature in their work. The rainbow is definitely one of the most colorful nature objects which inspires everyone. In this showcase I have collected some colorful websites with rainbow elements. Some of these use lots of colors, others use colorful lines similar to those of the rainbow while others use actual rainbow images.

    When I first read the title of this post I was slightly worried that I was going to be presenting with a number of colourful child-based web designs. When looking through this selection I was pleased to see some of the most inspirational uses of coloured elements in web design. My favourites would have to be the ‘Designfabrika’, ‘FeedStitch’ and ‘Beautiful 2.0’ designs, which have all been subtle with the use of colour yet have showcased the use of rainbow elements brilliantly.

    I think the trick here is to not make everything colourful. Although some of these get away with it.
