Black has always been—if not the most popular design color—the color which designers talk about the most. It is sophisticated, energetic, mysterious, elegant, powerful, stylish, and the complete opposite of the default white.
Now, I want to focus on the fact that it’s the exact opposite of white (I will talk about this more further in the text) because this is the kind of thing that you want and need in design—something different and intriguing, like the color black.
Why do you need it, though? When is the right time for you to create a black background site? I’m going to talk about all of this and more in this post, and fair warning: it’s going to get really dark, then darker than that, and finally that murky shade that’s even darker than #555 (my fellow developers know what I’m talking about).
