Showing Off Some Green Site's on St. Patricks Day!


Green occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye than most colors, and is second only to blue as a favorite color. Green is the pervasive color in the natural world, making it an ideal backdrop in interior design because we are so used to seeing it everywhere.The natural greens, from forest to lime, are seen as tranquil and refreshing, with a natural balance of cool and warm (blue and yellow) undertones. Green is considered the color of peace and ecology. However, there is an “institutional” side to green, associated with illness and government-issued green cards, that conjures up negative emotions, as do the “slimy” or “bilious” greens.

Did you know that the color green occupies more space on the color spectrum than any other color? It is second to blue in being a favorite color. Green soothes, relaxes mentally and even helps with anxiety. So in honor of St. Patrick's Day we thought it would be fun to highlight a few green-themed sites from our clients and pass on some "green" love!

In web design, color theory is essential to branding your website and creating the most effective atmosphere for your brands messaging. The color green displays positivity and it can give users the feeling of calm and optimism. Businesses use green to exude success and stability.

1. Phillip & Ryan Real Estate Services

Phillip & Ryan Real Estate Services website is set up on LinkURealty's vertical design. The bold use of green and complimenting images give their company site a very professional and inviting environment.

Beyond the color green is the site's easy to use design with all the essential elements for a successful real estate website. Some include:
  • Home search bar utilizing IDX, front and center for prospective buyers
