Why Do Nigerian Web Developer's Use The Color Green?

I am trying to figure something out.

Just saw a post by someone about ariaria.com

Well, i opened the page and my first question is why use green?

Well, you can also say because nigeria's color is green

But who said nigerian developer/designers should be using color green as a dominant color for their works?

Still trying to figure this out kinda puzzling though.

Even if they use the green color they bastardize it.

Many of them look terrible actually. Oh well someone please help me why do nigerian so called web designers use color green.

my guy. You just take style yab me. anyway, thanks for commending my work.

A few clients like intro on their site. when they begin to tell you they want something

memorable I immediately discern they are likely referring to an intro. I'm not a fan of intro, it takes time to do

and involve lots of thinking/imagination. As a business man, trust me I want to deliver a quality job as fast as i could

and get paid for it.

@deb, you shud have listed ur sites rather than misquote me.

someone said they wud bastardize green and i said, those who are capable of bastardizing green will also bastardize other colours if they had their way.

so why quote me when we were not referring to u?

Green is nice but like all colours it must not be overused on a page. A lot of developers do not realise that what you leave out is as important as what you put in colour wise.

Here is an example of a site with a Green Theme (GSM Camera website) that is professional and works well in Green.

When you said you have a site you want us to see, I was hoping to see a site. Not another forum script

What if the clients corporate colours have green and some more green?

Besides, how can you say Nigerian web developers use Green?

You mean you have seen all Nigerian web developers and all their works that made you come to this conclusion?

The qusetion should be: Why do 'some' web developers make use of bad colour themes?

That last site was not pleasing to the eye at all. I don't know why people feel the need to use their color. But as someone earlier said, if people do their country colors a lot of the sites would look like crap. I been to quite a few Jamaican sites and I must say, they really look like crap. I have a site, I don't really use my color. But if I do, its very subtle. And I have a small Jamaican flag. But I will not bombard the page with Jamaican colors. It just looks bad.

www.nigeriannews.com can't get any more 'bastardized' but it's still cool enough.

Exactly, as quadrillo said, there is nothing wrong with the color green, it is just that many ppl do sites badly with green - and the

websites look terrible - giving naija web developers a bad name!

I love green, i mean, i was in green house in primary school - and used to run for my house too!

There problem is that they use green, but because they know how to use any Color

I use green on two occassions: (1) if am doing a national or state project

                               

                                                  (2) if there is a shade of green in the Logo or company's color

but to be sincere GREEN is a beautiful color, na to sabi blend bi di koko

There is absolutely nothing wrong with green. It is just that many nigerian sites you come across = green and it is badly done.

Either it is just one green wtih a mixture of white or different shades of green which can hurt the eye. You will need a special type of goggles to diffuse the effect of the green

If the use of the green color is patriotic or is deemed being patriotic, I can definitely say that if other countries follow suit, many many many websites will look like crap.

the truth is, if they had used something else, they would have bastardized it too.

Green to me means life. there are shades of green that attracts the eye.
