Web Designs are about creating the right interface between your business and a prospective customer. Good website designs optimize on the latest technologies to create the right blend of creativity and usability. Much as a website is representative of your brand it is also the lead to convert a user into your customer.
A few valuable tips on the latest in web design will give beginners more insights on how and they should begin:
Keep it Simple
Complex web designs may discourage users to proceed further in your site, as they will not have the patience to “experiment” or “try out” new things or new modes of approach on your site. Online users come with a singular objective of either seeking information or buying the product/service in the easiest manner possible.
Keep it Clutter Free
Overcrowding with too many components and styles in your design pages may blur the focus of your page. You may want to advertise a freebie on a particular page and at the same time create placeholders for a new product. While fitting in both aspects in your web design, you need to ensure that there is no overlap or overcrowding that will defeat the purpose of both.
Create Empty Space
It is not necessary that your web page should be chock-a-bloc with images and text. Empty space is a must as it acts as the “connecting” point from one visual to the other.
In terms of presentation of products/services in your web design, prioritize the components that need primary focus. Accordingly, use styles/visual for the components you need to showcase first and let the attention cascade down the hierarchy.
One important aspect of web design is that navigation from one page to the other should be kept smooth and simple. There should be provision to go to the home page from any of the sub-pages. In addition, the “back” button should always be enabled to help users reverse/ go back to the previous page.
Use Uniform Style
Be it CSS or other style sheets you use in your web design, ensure that you keep a standard format to be followed across all your web pages. Users like uniformity or “likeness” when they are using a particular function/utility in your site.
Responsive Website Design
Website designs should be in the framework of RWD(responsive web designs), which means that they should be compatible across all devices- mobiles, iPADs, tablets etc, in view of the mobility of users and the ready accessibility these platforms provide.
With the above tips for the latest in web design, beginners will learn about the different parameters that provide the framework for a robust, user-friendly, aesthetic web design
