7 Deadly Sins Represented with Web Design Colors

The Seven Deadly Sins represents vices and tendencies that were believed to be misdeeds in early Christian religion.

The sins are as follows: envy, pride, wrath, sloth, lust, greed, gluttony.

Each sin is said to be represented by a colour. For example, envy is best represented by the colour green, which — in many cultures — is also the symbolic color of money.

I thought it would be a fun experiment to compile a showcase of a few web designs based on the colours reflected by the seven deadly sins.

Note: The web designs featured were used for aesthetic purposes only, not to imply that they characterize the sins.

Green – Envy

Envy is best described as a desire for something more and to covet other people’s belongings and status. The opposite of envy is love.
