10 top coffee and cafe website designs were our pick for this blog post on website examples. Most importantly, we wanted to see how some of the best designs were all monochrome sites, using the color brown to the best effect. Most content marketers shun the color brown in large doses on a site, because brown tends to look muddy and a bit “dirty”. It also looks “drab and boring” (that’s what research shows apparently) and hints at the “conservative and traditional, often perceived as dull”.
But the Content Marketing Examples – especially website designs – we have picked below tell a different story of the color brown. These examples just go to show why you should never get too rigid on any assumptions about color. When coffee shops and cafes, large or small, have to highlight the richness of their own feelings for their coffee brews, their ambience and their warmth, they all choose go with their monochrome browns. Not one of them suggests drabness or dullness to me, do they? Site designs – and passion statements – like these below do a spectacular job of using browns as the lone color of the products and ambience they sell, as well as to paint the hues of their owners’ deep intensity with. Brown can reflect your mood and moment back to you, whatever it is … spent alone or with friends, or in building a business you really care about!
