A Few Web Design Tips

These following web design tips should give you a head start on your next web project.

Upper Left Handside Corner

Always place your logo on the upper left hand corner because people are conditioned to read for left to right, top to bottom. Naturally, this is where people would look first.

This is the primary reason why Microsoft applications have the file command in the upper left corner; it is the most commonly looked at space. Because people will always first look at that space, you must put there what is most valuable – your logo.

Easy Links

Some users find small links hard to click on so you should make your links consist of more than one word. Also, don’t make your cascading menu options too close to each other for the same reason.

Above The Fold

The term above the fold refers to newspaper stories that are printed on the top half, above the crease usually made. These stories were always the most important stories.

To get more people to see your important information and content, place these data above the web design fold; this means put the content where users won’t have to scroll down to see it.

Choose Layout Before Interface

Before starting on your homepage, build a few graphic layouts and place them in a PowerPoint slide. Doing this will make browsing more convenient, before finally choosing a layout.
