Whether you’re planning on a website redesign or want to start a new website from scratch, finding design inspiration can be hard. Perhaps you have a few thoughts in mind, like a color scheme or layout, but don’t know where to begin.
Working with a web design agency can help you, but having a general idea of the direction you want to go in can give you the boost of confidence you need to move forward with your plans. With that in mind, here are a few ideas.
Create a Color Palette
Choosing a great color scheme is important. Your color scheme creates first impressions and plays a big role in setting a scene and creating a unified brand. Playing around with the color palette can also help you make decisions about what direction to go in with your design efforts. Check out these color palette tools to help you get started.
