Attorney Website Design: How Many Colors Should I Use?

When you pick a color scheme for your lawyer website, you are in a balancing act between too bland and too busy. You want your website to be memorable, but you don’t want visitors to be confused or overwhelmed. You want to improve your brand, but you don’t want to sacrifice simplicity. 

How many colors should you pick for your attorney website? 

  • Remember that three main colors are often ideal. Too few colors is always better than too many. Many designs agree that picking three major colors – and colors that match – is a great place to start. If you are going for a more minimalist design, two colors is a great choice. 
  • Know the 60-10-30 rule. Many web designers use a primary color, a secondary color, and an accent color. The primary color is used about 60 percent of the time, while the secondary color is used 30 percent of the time. The accent color is used sparingly – about ten percent of the time. 
  • Add shades and tones for more depth and complexity. If you have lots of design elements (buttons, side bars, graphics) you may need more than three colors. In these cases, consider using different shades and tints of your three main colors.
