Black / Dark UI Design Hype

Currently, the popularity of black design is far beyond the fashion industry. The color is making its way into UI and UX. More popular apps are introducing dark modes to treat their users. MacOS, Apple iOS, and Android followed the general trend. Instagram and Gmail apps have recently debuted their dark modes.

Black Color in Web Design

Did you ever think why dark layouts are so captivating? Users traditionally perceive them as luxury, expensive and elegant. If you want to justify high prices for your services, black website design is definitely the way to go.

The color is stern and formal, authoritative and powerful. It can evoke strong emotions, which is exactly what a coworking business is about (emotional connections.)

Black is associated with many things:

Of course, just like any other color or notion, black has its negative side. In some countries, the associations behind black are — evil, dark side, witchcraft, taboo, rebellion, and even death. However, I don't think they are critical, just remember Batman, Zorro, James Bond or Blade ;-).

What I am trying to say is that not all bad guys are dressed in black and not all angels are wearing snow-white feathers. It's sooner a matter of personal taste and preference.

If you give your members a choice which interface to use (dark UI or classical UI) for their coworking app, it gives them an additional opportunity for customization and styling everything inline with their image. Don't you think this is awesome?
