I redesigned the website for the Seattle Buddhist Center because I thought that the original version of their site looked pretty hokey.
My first step was figuring out my color scheme, which ended up being predominantly orange and white, with varying shades of gray. I had two reasons for the orange. First, and most importantly: orange is the color of their logo. I used that exact shade of orange for the stripe at the top of the page and for the links at the left side to achieve continuity. Second of all (and this is probably the reason behind the organization’s choice for the logo in the first place), orange is used a lot in Buddhism–especially Tibetan Buddhism. The monks’ robes are orange, along with much of the decoration that lines Buddhist temples.
