Being a part time web designer myself, I see a lot of people coming over to get a website done, or to redesign their existing design. While most people consider designing to be very important in the branding of their product, there are a select few who just want a good design at a low cost. Most clients have no idea what goes into a successful design and I think its the responsibility of a web designer to incorporate the essential elements to make a design successful. Some of the essentials in web designing includes:
For us bloggers content is king, but no one wants to read your king content in blue font over a yellow background! Imagine stumbling upon a site like that, I would rather hit the stumble button and move on. To make that first impression, good color combinations, pictures and icons will help create a impact on first time visitors.
Site Loading time:
Have a target audience in mind. If your site is about a soft drink, I am sure the visitors will wait the time to see the snazzy graphics. But if you have a content related site or a information portal, it pays to make the design easy on bandwidth.
Different elements require emphasis on a page, it might be your mission statement, your product list or a blaring “buy now” button. Web Designers who understand what the client expects from his website will go a long way in creating a perfect design.
A well navigable site is something everyone loves. Have a navigation bar if your site is a small one, if the number of pages are high, use categories to group links and make sure your design is navigable.
A place where you can find almost all design tips followed perfectly are in web templates. If you do not have the patience or the time to find a web designer to suit your tastes, website templates are your next best bet. It is very easy to buy a template from the ones you like and customize them to your requirements.
