Web's Brilliant Blues

Blue has always been my favorite colour.. and I would believe I share that with many of you. Blue is very calming. It can be strong and bold or it can be light and soothing. According to Wikipedia

“Blue is a colour, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 440–490 nm. It is considered one of the additive primary colours.”

Pantone actually selected PANTONE® 18-3943 BLUE IRIS as the 2008 Colour of the year.

“From a color forecasting perspective, we have chosen PANTONE 18-3943 Blue Iris as the color of the year, as it best represents color direction in 2008 for fashion, cosmetics and home products,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As a reflection of the times, Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic. Look for it artfully combined with deeper plums, red-browns, yellow-greens, grapes and grays.”

I have selected a few websites that I thought expressed and used the colour blue in an attractive interesting way to convey their message and/or feel of their brand.
