A lovely branding detail to look more professional

Branding detail - text selection color

We all know that feeling when we find a beautiful website and we think “Oh wow, that looks great, they surely are professionals in their field!”. That’s because the branding design can make us love or hate a brand in just a few seconds. But branding is not only about a good or a bad first impression, it’s more about the entire experience of connecting your readers/clients to what you have to offer: products, services or great online content in the long term. It’s all about expressing your core values and being comprehensive through all the channels, while always surprising with subtle details that will make people fall in love with your brand.

The lovely branding detail that will make you look more professional

A very subtle & lovely branding detail that most of the people don’t talk about when it comes to website design is the text selection color. We don’t understand why this color is so underrated and often neglected because we simply adore to enter a new website and to see the brand’s colors when we select some text. It gives us the feeling that we can trust that brand because it took care of its small branding details and it makes us smile every time we discover the selection color is not the default ugly blue.
