Web 2.0 Colors Palette

Web 2.0 is all about finding new ways to interact on the internet and collaboration. For the user, it represents shiny, flashy spiny websites with lots of dynamic content, bright colours and a minimalistic design with lots of interactivity.

For the developers, Web 2.0 means AJAX, Ruby on Rails, Javascript frameworks and simple CSS layouts, again with bold colours and subtle gradients.

For designers, Web 2.0 means colour.

Colour is the most important aspect of any web design, even more so with Web 2, with its shiny buttons, gradients and notifications. Miles Burke has grabbed the primary or logo colours from some of the biggest names in Web 2.0 land, and compiled this great Photoshop Swatch file which you can download here.

      Ruby on Rails Red [#B02B2C] RGB = 176,43,44
      Etsy Vermillion [#D15600] RGB = 209,86,0

      I'll update the page to include RGB colours as well.

      Thanks
