Initial Colour Research

When I first started looking at colour schemes for the website I looked at other websites which promote the outdoors and the countryside.

Although this site shows a large image of wheat in the background which indicates summer, harvest and the countryside I didn’t feel this colour scheme represented the caravan site or was inspiring for potential customers looking to book a caravan pitch.

Below I have used Adobe Color CC to collate this colour scheme:

I liked the colours on the National Trust website and felt they represented the National Trust brand, they are bold and suggest heritage.  Although this is a brand very much connected with the countryside I didn’t feel the majority of these colours represent Corner House Caravan and Camp Site.

I thought it was interesting to find feedback on the redesign of the National Trust website (see link below):
