Web design can be fun, but it can also be time consuming and confusing. If you’ve never designed your own website, it can seem near impossible. But don’t worry, it’s not. There are numerous tools out there to help you create the perfect site, even if you have no design skills whatsoever.
To help you get started, I’ve put together a short list of things to consider when you’re starting the web design process. My top five tips for designing an attractive website include:
- Keep The User Experience At The Front Of Your Mind
If you want to build a successful website, you need to make sure that it’s user friendly and easy to navigate. This means that you should always keep the user experience at the front of your mind when you’re designing your site. Consider how people will react to different design elements and think about whether or not including something is going to add to or take away from your site.
- Keep Things Simple
It’s also important to make sure that you keep your website simple. This ties in directly with the user experience, because cluttered website which are difficult to navigate simply aren’t very user friendly.
Although it can be tempting to add numerous different elements to your website to make things interesting, you should think about the value of everything you add. Only include things which will truly add value to your website and audience.
