    Hi, I am creating a website for a poetry group and I have settled on two color schemes but I am interested in your opinion. Which color scheme is the most pleasing to look at? Makes the most sense?

    Are there other colors I can use? I want to avoid cool colors (blue, green, purple) as much as possible.

    Here are the PNGS.

    Thank You

    I'm not a big fan of either just because white on orange is harder to read than a dark color on orange.

    Having said that, I'd go with #1 because it's more vivid.

    I like the 1st colors (color-scheme-2.png) better because they are more vibrant. The 2nd (color-scheme-1.png) one feels and looks dull.

    I don't really care for either - my personal preferences run to blues, greens, purples, and light backgrounds.
    That said, of the two I like the more vibrant one better.

    actually I would take it a step further and combine both. The reason why BOTH will not work is because your orange hue is too close and causes a clashing effect with the eye. Use both ranges of oranges and stay away from EITHER the RIGHT and LEFT.

    I always try to design the color scheme off of the logo colors. If the logo is crap or bad colors then you might consider a logo redesign before proceeding. Just my opinion
