Should your website and logo have the same color scheme?
I am working on a completely new blog from scratch. New logo, branding, house style, everything needs to be done. The logo that is designed for the website has 3 colors, brown, green and black. You can think of a tree with leaves. On the blog itself, I do not really want to use those colors, it makes the site look really boring. I want to add some flashy colors like red and blue to put some emphasis on certain elements. Plant brown and green are no easy colors to add flash to.Now my question is, will this break the overall style and design, if I just go with a different color scheme than the logo itself? Or is it better to have the logo redone to reflect the style of the website?
While I usually like to match the website colors to the logo as best as I can but sometimes I have to tinker with the color scheme and so you have to find colors that will work well with hte logo and the rest of your website.
