Hi guys,

Need advice.
I'm in the process of creating a network of website each to provide a different service or tools/information.

I'm torn between two design methods.

Do i:

1. Create each and every website using the same color scheme. So the same colors and css coloring will be used on each of the websites. For example. yellow/gray colors on all.

2. Create each and every website using a different color scheme on each. For example, Green on one site, Red on another, Yellow on another etc..

Can you please tell me which of the two options will appeal more to the users. And use your experience and experteese to judge wether an adverage user will identify a website beause of the color scheme (1) or the users will like a variety of colors (2).

Thank you in advance,

If they're very closely related, I would go with the same colors mostly, for continuity.

IF they're only related because you own them all, then do whatever fits your fancy.

Or you may want to use colour to differentiate between the sites in the network, but keep all the other design features the same, so if it was a network of sports / fitness sites you could have a common logo and design but a yellow theme for running, green for nutrition, blue for weights, etc
