Learn the Web Design Basics – Part 1
Let’s start from the basic… I’m pretty aware that you can find thousands of articles on web design, but how many exactly can help you learning the basics of web design and sharpening the web design skills. Yes, you can get, but still you can get something out of world statement that may leave wondering the things. No one knows you and your web design skills better than your TL (i. Team Leader). So here I’ve just tried to type in my personal experience as Web Design TL in Modulesoft Solutions Pvt.
Ltd. – a leading web development and design company in India. Basics: Basics are basics and they remain for ever as the step 1 to something big set on the top. Every individual has his/her own strategy or way to achieve the top slot, but the basics for everybody remain always same. Here follows some of the web design basics: Graphics Think Small:- Technology is all about making things faster and safer and web users too are addicted such tendencies.
So as web designer you should not deviate from the highway; otherwise you will be left behind in your profession and your outcome would not be considered as worthy and up to the STANDARD. I would say Thinking Smaller is the best way to deal with the point. On the one hand number of broad band users are increasing, but we should not consulate ourselves that big images won’t affect the overall performance of the site as slow pages are still point of annoyance for web users. Big images cause a page slow downloading. Here you can use small images and thus you can design a very fast loading page. Stock Photos:- What you like doesn’t matter to the users. I mean to explain that if you love your son a lot and put his lovely picture on your dog care site, and that won’t impress your users except your family members. You should use relevant stock photos to your business. Sometimes images say a lot instead of words and as a web designer we should not forget about this. Our negligence can cost heavier later on.
Say NO to Blinking Images:- Banners are banners and they have different objective and on the other hand stock photos are stock photos for a website and there should not be any mess up. Research says that blinking pictures never improves your CTR (Click through Rate). Another disadvantage of using flashy images is that the image overshadows the rest of the page. As a result the visitor won’t be going deeper into the website and your client may loose more business. Standard Layouts:- Designing long page is not a good idea. It would be better if you keep the page length in between one scroll length of browser window. Some web designers use multiple scrollable areas in a single page. This not only create for your visitors and it keeps your visitor engaged in the whole page quickly and longer period of time as well as for the search engine ranking. Here the discussion doesn’t end. I’ll be writing sequels to this article.
