4 Tips On How To Design Your Website Layout by gyvwpgjmtx

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 2

									The way a website looks is as just as vital as the content. A good looking website aims
to attract viewers and keep them interested in you, the services or products you are
offering. A chaotic or overloaded website may put people off, as it looks over
cluttered and unfriendly to use. It often detracts from the content too, dominating the
page, rather than complementing the content as it should. On the other hand, an overly
simple page can look boring and unremarkable, in turn not leaving an impression on
your viewers as it should. So here’s a few handy tips that can help you design a
unique but working layout.


 (1)First of all design your theme. You know what your website is about, now you
need to present the images and colours that go with the subject. Also think about how
the colours and images could revolve around your heading - you should try to make
this stand out as it’s the first thing viewers will see and it says exactly what the
website is about through words, images and colour.


 (2)Next think about how the content flows naturally. Work with how much content
you have and any natural segmentation. If your website has lots of information,
present it in an orderly fashion in sections, rather than just one chunk of text. It will
help break up the text making it appealing to viewers. Not only could you split up text
by subheadings, but by images too. Of course, keeping a variation between the two
will make the website overall more interesting and attractive looking.


 (3)You may have already considered theme colours, which can be based around the
subject, products or logos. Have a look at your logo, pick any colours that you think
would look good on the page and would complement it. Remember, sometimes
contrasting colours work well when put together, so you don’t necessarily have to
match your page to the logo’s colours. Also take viewers into account as you choose
the colours, as you want colours that will attract them but are readable. For instance,
contrasting colours for background and writing often work together best if the dark
colour is on a lighter background. When the other way round, it is simply just not that
visible.


 (4)Next decide upon how the navigation bar is going to look. How are you going to
organise it? Are you going to have it at the top or at the side? How are you going to
make it stand out from the rest of the page? Through colour, font, italics, or
underlining? Think about how you would also make links stand out too.

  Once you have drafted your final copy for your website layout (you can just sketch
it), you can then begin to create your website. This, you can do yourself or hire a
professional web design company for. If you are interested in website design
