Here is a great collection of our favorite yellow themed website designs at CHP for 2012.

Yellow - one of the great underused colors

Most designers don't start thinking "Hey let's do a yellow site." But maybe they should. There's a reason yellow and yellow-orange are paired with black for highway construction signs and police barriers. Yellow and black is a vibrant and high contrast color combo that's sure to get noticed.

Yellow and black, a very strong color combination

The high contrast nature of yellow and black are the reason the color stand out from the crowd so much.. plus yellow and black can be pretty harsh, so you don't see it everyday. There's less yellow and black to compete with, so your design stands alone more readily.

But be careful - yellow is also optically the most fatiguing color. Over-exposure is hard on the eyes, so as much as it gets attention, over-use can be quite irritating.

Properties of the color yellow

Positive associations: Optimism, confidence, self-esteem, extraversion, emotional strength, friendliness, creativity.
Negative associations: Irrationality, fear, emotional fragility, depression, anxiety, suicide.

The yellow wavelength is relatively long and thus stimulating. In this case the stimulus is emotional, therefore yellow is the strongest colour, psychologically.

The right yellow can lift our spirits and our feelings; it is the color of confidence and optimism. Too much of it, or the wrong tone in relation to the other tones in a colour scheme, can cause self-esteem to plummet, giving rise to fear and anxiety.
