A few weeks ago we talked about colorful websites. This time we are leaving the color aside to center on monochromatic web designs in black and white. The combination of black and white offers the maximum contrast possible because they come from opposite ends of the color spectrum.

In this post we showcase 30 of the best black and white web designs we found around the Internet. Check them out!
