Week 10: Website Design
1. Layout Design: The design of your website is a huge decision. Weather you are going to attempt to design/redesign your website yourself or hire someone it is important to spend a good amount of time researching designs that you like. List below (5) website designs that you like and you think would fit your business.
2. Balance Color, Graphics and Media: Web design can go very wrong with too much color, mismatched color combinations and too many interactive features. A well-balanced web design uses three to four colors at most and has text colors that contrast well with the site’s background color.
3. Well Organized Content: Whereas the look of a website design welcomes visitors, it is the content that keeps them around. A web design can look great, but unless it presents content in an inviting manner, it is meaningless.
4. Easy, Error-Free Navigation: Without navigation and ease of its accessibility, a web design is just a pretty page. Navigation acts as a map, directing visitors through the site based on their interests.
