Usually, when I looked for a framework, the first thing I was looking at was the homepage. I don't want it too look misterios. Take a look at laravel's homepage. Is so light you want to try the framework just to see if is just as easy. Now take a look at CakePHP's homepage. It looks ooooold. Now take a look at Kohana: it looks... crowded. Now take a look at FuelPHP: it tells you to run from it.

Note: Sorry if something of what I've said hurt someone. I didn't refer to the frameworks themselves, but to what their homepages made me think.

Hi, I completely understand where you're coming from and I did think initially about placing more emphasis with white - it does convey professionalism and clean. What prompted the use of the dark colors was an option to provide something different that the other frameworks were not - Everyone looks the same and I believe CI needs to stand out. Plus I could not shake the idea that CI was the "dark horse" returning from the grave. Laravel has somewhat clouded the color market by taking the pink/red side of the framework spectrum, diluting the CI brand. The conception above I have given above hopefully displays something different to anyone looking for a simple easy to use framework. It's not fixed in stone and certainly welcomes any community input.

The main reason for the blue is that a flame is more powerful when blue and white, CodeIgniter is more powerful now Smile
