Key Principles Of Effective Web Design


Content comes first – don’t put the cart before the content before you decide how the website should look.


Know your audience – consider the needs and expectations of your ideal visitor and appeal to those users on a more intuitive level.


User appropriate media – use the most relevant and user- friendly media available to convey information.


Be intuitive – a clear structure, visual clues and easily recognisable links to help users to find the path to their aim.


Don’t fear whitespace – whitespace reduces cognitive overload and make it easier to digest the information presented on screen.


Remove barriers – let users explore your site and discover your services without forcing them into sharing private data first.


Strive for simplicity – users rarely visit a site just to enjoy the design – they are looking for information.


Don’t reinvent the wheel – standard design conventions reduce the need for your users to figure out how your site works.


Be consistent – keep the layout and branding consistent between the pages of your website.


Call to action – guide and encourage users to perform useful actions and increase sales of lead generation.
