Color Scheme Guide
Classic Style
  • The Classic color schemes are simple with a subtle visual punch. These schemes use color very sparingly and present most of the information on a white background with black text.
  • Use one of the Classic styles and you can't go wrong. These colors and background schemes look good with nearly any business or organizational website.
  • Warm colors, such as Earth, Fall or Barrister, accentuate a positive emotion or feel.
  • Cool colors, such as Sky, Winter, Forest, accentuate a logical or straightforward emotion or feel.
  • Impact colors, such as Upbeat, Floral, and Portfolio, accentuate a sharpness or distinctiveness.
  • For more Cool, Warm and Impact colors, see either Site Color or the User Guide for Color Schemes

  • The best way to test a color scheme is to go to the Site Manager and click on the Site Color button.
  • Find a scheme which appeals or which you would like to try and click on the Preview button.
  • Spend some time exploring your website with a variety of different schemes. Some schemes will highlight certain elements of your website more than others.
