Sometimes being a value web design can be a hard task to accomplish, you need creativity and uniqueness to succeed in the line of work. I learned that to make your web design stand out from the crowd you need to sometimes keep it simple and use other features to bring out your design alive. Here are some few tips to make a simple web design look stunning!
Think as a visitor.
- Use appropriate images on your site. Sometimes an image may look good but does it flow with the “theme” of the design. Most important keep all images 10-15Kb. The smaller the file size the faster your site will load and this will help keep your visitors on your site longer. No one like to wait for a page to load.
- Provide a lot of white spaces between big blocks of content. This also relates back to the visitor, I can’t stand a web site that has a huge block of content. White spaces help breaks up the content which makes it easier for the visitors to read and get the main point out of your site.
- Stick with a standard layout of 3-columns, there is a reason why new site works so effectively because they implement the 3-column design. This help separate the content from the links and navigation.
- Basic fonts like Sans-serif works best and used most because of the readability. Also the font size plays a major role in a website design too, a prefect size is 12 for content and using H1 tags for headlines.
These were some basic but simple web design tips that can make your site stunning, it may sound boring but the key to having a successful website design all depends on your visitors. They are the guys who will decide if you design was easy to navigate and understand. Hope these simple tips about web design help you out on your next project!
