Web Design

Elements of Web Design

  • Layout: This is the way the graphics, ads, and text are arranged on a web page. The goal is to find the information in a user-friendly way. This includes a consistant design.
  • Color: The choice of colors depend on the purpose and clientele. It could be a simple black and white or multi-colored design to convey the personality of a person or the brand of an organization, using web-safe colors.
  • Images: Images enhance web design and can include logos, icons, photos or clipart. For user friendliness, these need to be placed appropriately, working with the color and content of the web page, while not making it too congested or slow to load.
  • Fonts: The use of various fonts can enhance a website design.
  • Content: Written text should always be relevant and useful. Content should be optimized for search engines and be of a suitable length, incorporating relevant keywords.

Creating User-Friendly Web Design

Besides the basic elements of web design that make a site beautiful and visually compelling, a website must also always consider the visitor. User-friendliness can be achieved by paying attention to the following factors.

  • Navigation: Site architecture, menus and other navigation tools in the web design must be created with consideration of how visitors browse and search. The goal is to help the visitor to move around the site with ease, efficiently finding the information they require.
  • Multimedia: Relevant video and audio can help visitors understand in an easy and quick way. This can encourage visitors to spend more time on the webpage.
  • Compatibility: Design the webpage to perform equally well on different browsers, devices, and operating systems.
  • Interactive: Increase active user participation and involvement by adding comment boxes and opinion polls in the design. Convert users from visitors to clients with email forms and newsletter sign-ups.
