Keeping it colorful is a good technique, and sometimes you don’t have to slap on every color in the rainbow to do it. Switching colors adds a lively, dynamic characteristic to your design.

Today we’re looking at designs that don’t shy away from a broad color palette and completely embrace the rainbow. Happy Friday Focus!
Welcome to the last Friday Focus of the month! This week we’re featuring sites employing blocks of color as a dominant part of their designs. Who says we need to use gradients in everything we do? See how it’s done.
No, these websites aren’t just for the little ones, but their designs certainly have a child-focused appeal to them. Check out the elements that make up a Kid-Friendly look on this week’s Friday Focus.
This week on Friday Focus: illustrations that appear front and center in these websites, because we want them big, bright, and beautiful.
This week on Friday Focus: website designs that use strong lines to guide the eye in navigating around them.

This week on Friday Focus: these folded, boxy 3D-looking designs pose an interesting challenge to the designer in creating perspective and breaking out of boundaries. See how these websites did it!

I’m doing something different this week on Friday Focus. I found one site with ten different styles on the same content (plus one homepage). Each one tries to match the visitor’s mood for the day. It’s also a good way to showcase one’s design repertoire. The designer also employs many interesting techniques into each style, so be sure to check all of them out!
I thought I’d make Friday Focus post titles a bit more descriptive from now on. The theme for this week, however, is a tricky one. It’s not about a common design element for the featured sites, but it’s about the techniques and choices made by the designers. The designs are almost there, but they need that one final tweak. Agree or disagree?
