Avoiding Simple Design Mistakes

website-design-mistake

Many of the world’s websites suffer from mistakes that can dramatically impact their effectiveness. The mistakes done while designing a website can be easily avoided. This article lists the some common mistakes with helpful advice on how to avoid them.
No matter how well or how poorly your site is implemented, by far the largest mistake occurs when the website’s role in the overall strategy of your organisation has not been well thought through. Only once the strategic purposes and role of the site are understood can the site be built in a manner that achieves those objectives.

1. Lack of Accessibility:

Accessibility refers to the ease with which a wide range of users can access your website. It also refers to the vast array of equipment, operating systems and browsers that are used to surf the web.

2. Infrequently Asked Questions:

Most of the websites no longer have FAQs pages and rather updated their content to provide information to the visitors. All the content of your website needs to be relevant to the visitor who are frequently visiting the site. Relevant and quality content will give them a good impression and will increase the chances of a visitor becoming a customer.

3. Can’t find contact information:

For small and medium businesses this is crucial as your contact information provides a key link to reality, giving customers confidence that they are dealing with a real business rather than a chiseler. You should provide the contact information,  including conventional methods such as phone and business address.

4. Click here To enter site:

Don’t waste your home page with a “Click here to enter site” link since your website visitor is already here, so help them immediately with relevant and quality content.

6. Too much flash:

Since not only everyone has flash but also not everyone has the bandwidth to support flash. Though flash can add movement to your website. If you have decided that it is appropriate to use a sizeable flash component on your website then make sure that the visitor receives visual feedback while it loads.

7. Too many meaningless graphics:

Excessive use of graphics will create confusion and lead to slow down the user experience. Graphics used in your website need to be optimised to ensure that the site is running at faster speeds. It will help your website to enhance the user experience.

8. Search Engine Unfriendly:

Although  having a search engine friendly site will not assure you high rankings on your favourite search engine. These include having a site map, brief and relevant content, use of standard mark-up tags that are recognised by search engines as well as meta tags such as keywords and a description.

10. Poor navigation:

Navigation from your website should be systematic and structured in a well-manner consistent web conventions. You should stick to standard techniques and locations for navigation elements such as links and menus. Navigating through your website should be perceptive. It must be easy for each visitor to find the primary links such as “Home” and “Contact us” links with simple distinguishable navigation elements.

11. Poor color schemes:

A poor colour scheme will distract visitors from your website. At worst, the message from your site will become unreadable. It is also essential to keep vision impaired users in mind, so if your site features coloured text on a coloured background then it would be wise to offer a high contrast option. This can easily be done using style sheets.

12. Expecting that people will read your Web Pages:

Many of the people skip to read the web page completely. They just look over the web pages for relevant information, zooming in on the essentials that catch their interest. So it is important that you will display the well-ordered information which is easy to locate on the page.

13. Pop-up Windows:

Try to avoid pop-up windows, unless it is essential to use in your website. Most of the visitors find pop-windows irritating and also many browsers block them.

14. Broken Links:

All the links on your website should be properly tested and work. Visitor encounter a  broken link will  look improper and lead to demoralize the visitors in your website which affects business revenue of your organization.

A flawless site will load in not more than a few seconds. As website visitors are highly impatient and will leave slow sites redirecting to another website. Reasons for slow loading pages may include heavy size graphics, optimum graphics formats.  If there is a certain, unavoidable reason for having a slow site, then provide visual feedback for the visitor while it loads. Site graphics need to be optimised to ensure that the site is displayed at a appropriate speed.

Modern Web Design Trends You Need to Know About

 

webdesign-583193_640

The technology world is changing everyday in a way you couldn’t possibly have expected.. Being web designer, you need to keep up-to-date yourself of these changes, else you’ll be left behind by tons of competitors.

This article will help you to know about the ongoing trends and keep yourselves up-to-date. Here are a few of the most essential trends on the modern web. As a web designer, you must know about them.

1) Flat Design Is Getting Bigger:

Flat design will help you to get to the point, without disturbing the look and feel of a website. These days, websites are focusing more on quality content and

Websites are focusing more on content and less on superfluous or unnecessarily ornate user-interface elements. We’re also seeing an emergence of single-page websites, as well as sites that use simple color schemes and navigation. In short, the web is becoming more and more streamlined with each passing day.

2) Fixed-Position Navigation:
Fixed-navigation – where a page’s navigation bar is visible at all times – will come into its own this year as web designers realize that gaudy, overdesigned, anchored sitemaps do absolutely nothing to help the user experience. Expect sidebars and top-bars that stay with the page as you scroll down, making navigation feel both simpler and smoother.

3) Typography’s a Big Deal

The eyes of the average web user are just a touch more cultured than they used to be – once ubiquitous fonts like Times New Roman simply won’t cut it anymore. This year, you can expect typography to dominate the design dialogue.

4) Mobile’s Importance Is Increasing in Leaps and Bounds:

This is perhaps the least surprising trend on the list – mobile devices are going to grow even more prevalent, and as a result, the mobile web is going to become even more important from a web design standpoint. Designers who haven’t yet addressed the mobile problem are going to be forced into rethinking the user experience for smaller screens, and the phrase “mobile first” will take on a very real meaning.

5) Short Presentation Videos Are Making a Comeback:

Thanks in large part to the immense popularity of Vine, short presentation videos are likely to make a comeback this year. Shorter videos – which appeal to the relatively short attention span of the average user – are far likelier to go viral, and marketers are starting to clue into this trend. Expect to see promotional clips that get the point across right away rather than waste time standing on ceremony.

6) It’s All about Scrolling:
parallax websites which focus almost entirely on scrolling – are going to continue growing in importance. Again, this is thanks to mobile devices. The simple fact is, a scrolling website is far easier to navigate on a mobile device than one that requires you to click a bunch of links. It feels more natural, too.
