I love colorful designs but when the color combos just aren't working it can compromise the entire site. Within two seconds I have formed an opinion and even if the layout is quite nice, I have categorized the site as bad. When that happens I don't put as much trust on the content I read and may not stick around very long. All of this just because of the choice of colors. Below are some examples that are polar opposite from the above mentioned sites. Not only are they great but they present themselves in a unique matter as far as current trends go. Enjoy!
