What do you think about black and white websites? Simple, clean or outdated? Anyway, they have sprung up with a growing number. I personally think that Black and White websites has grace and class. As the age-old saying goes, sometimes less is more. This is definitely true of website designs. Removing color from the websites means website has to rely more on website’s layout, typography and etc.

The high-impact and maximum contrast designs plus the freshness and mystery brought by the two simple colors make up a stream of clear water while we are wandering in the huge desert of colorful webs. For this article I have found 30 attractive and striking black and white websites. It is great to experience that sometimes minimal use of colors can be a really good choice for a website. Check it out!

@Diseño – With all due respect it’s not about you, it’s about the brand(s) you’re designing for. The last thing the world needs is yet another “designer” who believes he/she define the context. Sorry, such beliefs are obviously a pet peeve of mine. I felt compelled to share that.

Presuming these designs are brand appropriate then this is some nice work. Thanks for the inspiration Dustin!
