Dark mode means nothing more than that the background of the screen is dark, and the texts are light. With Light Mode, it’s obviously the other way around.

The contrast between the text reading and the background color should be enough to make reading with both shapes enjoyable. The background color does not necessarily have to be black; It can be any ‘dark’ colour. Its implementation varies greatly.

Instantly recognizable when we access our favorite websites or apps, the dark theme is one option: the dark-on-light color scheme, which was originally designed to simulate the appearance of ink on paper .

Do not get too dark

Unlike black ink, book publishers do not use pure white paper that much. It makes you drowsy and can cause headaches. The same goes for digital devices. Stay away from pure black.

Determine if Dark Mode is Really Right for Your Website Content

Dark Mode is great for enhancing emotional branding, showing off photos and graphics, and emphasizing visual content, but not so great for displaying large chunks of text.

Light text on a dark background can cause readability problems in practice, so for parts of your website that contain a lot of text, dark mode may not be the best choice for displaying your content.

Usable

Dark Mode can also have a big impact on the usability of your product. You will need to think about not only the environment in which people use your product but also how long they use it.

Brand Color

Make sure your brand’s colors can really work well with lighter-than-dark designs. If not, but you are still ready to follow the dark mode, consider going through a rebrand before implementing the dark mode.

Stay away from completely saturated colors on dark backgrounds. Colors often “vibrate” when viewed on dark surfaces. Instead, use saturated colors like pastels and muted colors—colors in which gray and white are combined.

Do not just reverse

If you’re switching from standard mode to dark mode, there’s probably valuable visual cues in the original theme.

Dynamic Scrolling

Parallax scrolling is a trend that came to life a few years back. It is a technique in computer scenes in which background images move more slowly with the camera than foreground pictures, creating the illusion of depth in a remote 2D scene. For a while, this technology was a huge hype.

In 2022, however, it is different. Parallax scrolling was applied to almost the entire website with every element; Now it is used on a much smaller scale. Parallax scrolling is now used more extensively to make a website more dynamic or create more depth and experience without distracting a visitor from the website.

Use the Right “On” Colors

What is an “on” color? One that is visible above the elements and prominent surfaces. The “on” colors are typically used for lettering. Dark Mode UI default “on” color is pure white (#FFFFFF). Don’t use it. #FFFFFF vibrates when viewed against dark background. Go with a light brown color.

Conclusion

The dark theme revolution is just accelerating. That means it’s the perfect time to go dark and get creative. Get ready to be the leader in Dark Mode!

Dark mode has been adopted by many companies and while dark mode may not be right for your brand, well  optimize your marketing and design for apps and services that offer this option to ensure that You always provide the best users and customers.
