7 Tips to Improve Your Web-design Skills.
1) Design in shades of gray, then add color
If your web designer creates wireframes prior to visual designs, then you know the value of starting with shades of gray. Turn your wireframe into a grayscale visual design, add your photography, then carefully add color to design elements one at a time.
2) Add web fonts to your corporate style guide
It’s 2016, and if your corporate style guide doesn’t include web fonts, then you need to look into adding those so your website has the same governance that corporate documents and collateral does.
3) Ditch the slideshow/carousel
When the homepage slideshow/image carousel came into fashion, it was a way to get lots of information on the first page of your website. The problem is that most people don’t stay on the page long enough to experience all of the tiles/messages.
4) Simplify navigation
Reducing your visitors’ options might seem counter intuitive, but it can actually help guide people to your most productive content. Rather than overwhelming your website visitors with links to every page, simplify your navigation.
5) Get color inspiration from nature
Struggling to find the perfect color combination for your website or a call to action graphic? Get your inspiration from nature. You can either use your own camera to photograph natural wonders around you or find landscape photos on the web, the use a color picker to select a color. Nature’s color palette never fails.
