How to choose a colors scheme for a relationship/dating site #

How to choose a colors scheme for a relationship/dating site

There are many crucial aspects which require consideration when you are designing a dating site. The obvious components are the overall layout, ease of navigation, choice of font, incorporation of eye-catching images, and how well the text is seeded with those all-important keywords to draw visitors via search engines. But one of the most fundamental of all is much more elementary. Color. In order for your site to attract maximum web traffic, it must have an appropriate color scheme. Here are some of the reasons why this is so important.

 

How we react to colors

 

Before studying which colors would best tie in with a niche-specific area like online dating, it would be worth taking an overview of the subject. Color is a vital element of giving us an impression about something, and this is down to biology. When we see any color, a particular part of our brain reacts, resulting in a rush of hormones being released. These will affect everything from moods to emotions. An obvious example of this would be the use of red. The color of blood, we associate red with danger, which is why warning signs are traditionally red. But it also symbolizes passion.

 

This psychology is studied by everyone from graphic designers to architects, but especially advertisers. Studies have shown color appreciation, whether it is done consciously or subconsciously, makes a huge impact on what people decide to buy, accounting for 90% of product assessment. It is also hugely influential on which websites we are drawn to.

 

Understanding this in relation to the attention span of Internet users is of vital importance. The bottom line is, if a site visitor doesn't find a color appealing within the first few seconds of alighting on your homepage, they'll swiftly move on, never to return. With online dating, an enterprise centered on social interaction, it is vital a site has a compelling look. And the color scheme lies at the heart of this.

 

Themes

 

You would never expect a site offering legal advice to be brashly-colored. Conversely, if you alighted on a dating resource, you would most likely be deterred if it was overly formal-looking, or presented in blacks and reds, as if you'd stumbled into a fan forum for some metal band. Choosing the color scheme for a relationship site often centers on warm tones – reds, oranges and so on – which can signify warmth and hospitality, but also incorporate fiery passion.

 

Components

 

Aside from the choice of basic palette, there are many different aspects to any website's color scheme. Take a dating site such as Loveaholics.com as an example. The site header is about setting the tone, establishing the brand. Here the title ‘loveaholics,' is set in an elegant script-style font, in two colors; white emphasizing the essential ‘love' part of this heading. This is placed against a full-blooded wine red background, complimenting the heart-shaped logo next to it.

 

The remainder of the landing page is clean and white, placing the emphasis on the attractive image and sign-up form. Below, explanatory text is arranged in a neat, black sans-serif font, while hyperlinks stand out in a brighter orange. The general effect is minimalist, this straightforward color scheme presenting an inviting interface that welcomes site visitors to explore this relationship site further.

 

Other sites might opt for a more complicated layout, introducing everything from background images, borders, menubars, sidebars, buttons or popups. When any designer is juggling with these basic elements, their relationship to each other, as well as the overall site theme, is of vital importance. Too many color clashes will deter users. But used sensibly, color will bring your dating site alive!

Computer Grrrls #

Is your startup built on open source? 9 tips for getting started #

When I started Gluu in 2009, I had no idea how difficult it would be to start an open source software company. Using the open source development methodology seemed like a good idea, especially for infrastructure software based on protocols defined by open standards. By nature, entrepreneurs are optimistic—we underestimate the difficulty of starting a business. However, Gluu was my fourth business, so I thought I knew what I was in for. But I was in for a surprise!

An introduction to Udev: The Linux subsystem for managing device events #

Udev is the Linux subsystem that supplies your computer with device events. In plain English, that means it's the code that detects when you have things plugged into your computer, like a network card, external hard drives (including USB thumb drives), mouses, keyboards, joysticks and gamepads, DVD-ROM drives, and so on. That makes it a potentially useful utility, and it's well-enough exposed that a standard user can manually script it to do things like performing certain tasks when a certain hard drive is plugged in.

The Art of Letterlocking: The Elaborate Folding Techniques That Ensured the Privacy of Handwritten Letters Centuries Ago #

How Glenn Gould’s Eccentricities Became Essential to His Playing & Personal Style: From Humming Aloud While Playing to Performing with His Childhood Piano Chair #

The cultural law that we must indulge, or at least tolerate, the quirks of genius has much less force these days than it once did. Notoriously perfectionistic Stanley Kubrick’s fabled fits of verbal abuse, for example, might skirt a line with actors and audiences now, though it’s hard to argue with the results of his […]

According to Leonard Cohen, songwriting is a lonely business, but there’s nothing for it, he sings in “Tower of Song,” when you’re “born with the gift of a golden voice" and when “twenty-seven angels from the Great Beyond” tie you to a table and make you write. Just where is Cohen’s tower? Maybe Montreal, his […]

Jazz Deconstructed: What Makes John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” So Groundbreaking and Radical? #

John Coltrane bore an unusual burden. Many experimental artists who radically change their forms of music, and music in general, are so out on the edge and ahead of their time they elude the public’s notice. But Coltrane was responsible for both “furthering the cause” of free jazz and “delivering it to an increasingly mainstream […]

The Cyber Baroque World of Italy’s Rondò Veneziano #

Positing a fantasy world where Renaissance and Enlightenment values co-existed with the joys and preoccupations of the coming technological age, the Rondo Veneziano orchestra was the brainchild of Italian record label owner Freddy Naggiar, who noticed the lack of Italian instrumental music on the international scene and charged orchestra director and arranger/composer Gian Piero Reverberi to come up with someone or something to fill the gap...
