I'm making a site where you can earn badges: bronze, silver and gold. The bronze color doesn't seem right.

#1 Visual Aid

Bronze: #B9600D

Silver: #C0C0C0

Gold: #FACC34

Does it look weird to anyone else? Or, just me?

Your other colours are a lot brighter than the bronze, which looks a little brown to me.

Try out #cd7f32 instead for a lighter look across the board.

It looks a bit too brown to my eye. Google used these colours for their search graphics during the 2012 London Olympics:

Google gold/silver/bronze

  • Gold: #ffce00
  • Silver: #b5b6b5
  • Bronze: #b67d00
