Note from Jimmy Hua:
Interesting on how all of the logos cluster up around two different colors.
This post is shared through my Google Reader from another source. All credit of the post belongs to them which you can access by going to The Colors of the Web’s Superbrands [INFOGRAPHIC]
What colors do the web’s most powerful brands use to distinguish themselves from others? The folks from COLOURlovers decided to find out, producing the infographic below as the result.
As it turns out, web brands love color. Only a few of them are predominantly grey or black and white. The most popular color is blue (nearly all big social networks use it), followed by a variety of reds and oranges. Also, many of the web’s top brands, such as Google and MSN, have a multicolored logo.
COLOURlovers used data from Alexa, Compete and Nielsen to compile the list of the top 100 brands on the web, and while one can always question their methodology, the infographic definitely paints an interesting picture concerning color usage by some of the most popular brands on the web.
