The Basics of Web Design

Designing a website can be hard if you don’t know what you’re doing. With simple software solutions like WordPress and Joomla web design is now available to the average person with no web design or coding experience. In this post I’m going to give you a few tips on how to get the most from your web design experience.

 

It may look pretty, but stay away from having way too many computer animations on your website. Having your sales page turn, spin as and blink may look amazing to you, but it will drive prospective visitors away. When you add way too many flashy images like that, it makes your website look incompetent which is not the impression you want to give.

 

As you build your site, be conscious of the colours you use. The content has to stand out against the background so that your site is easily recognizable as yours. It is generally much easier to see darker lettering that is on light backgrounds than the opposite. If you are uncertain whether or not your chosen colour scheme is user friendly, get some feedback from a few of your friends.

 

Always try to separate lengthy text blocks. Having a big block of text is unnecessary for any sort of website, particularly when you can break it up using images, or even separating it out onto various web pages. Boring your viewers will only make them leave, so keep things easy on the eye  and looking as fresh as possible.

 

To sum up, it is critical that you have a good understanding of basic web design before you start your very own website. Hopefully you found these suggestions well described and useful. Execute these suggestions and you will certainly find that you will enjoy how you are going to progress in the web design world.
