KEY COMPONENTS
  • There are several components that go into creating a web design, but I believe it can be broken down into FOUR Basic components:
      • Solid Layout
      • Effective Typography
      • The Right Color Scheme
      • Appropriate Design Elements
  • If you’re able to execute on all four, you will have a hit web design on your hands!

KEY COMPONENTS SOLID LAYOUT

The importance of having a good foundation applies to just about everything in life. In web design, The foundation is a SOLID LAYOUT

  • Involves properly placing all the content and navigational components
  • Establish a hierarchy in these elements
  • This should be determined by how you think your audience will use the site

Wire Frames

  • This is a common practice used to nail down a layout
  • This is a barebones representation of the various elements that will appear on the page

BE GENEROUS withWHITESPACE

  • We often make the mistake of over crowding our web designs.
  • Adding larger amounts of whitespace will actually give your design a more sophisticated look
  • The balance of white space makes it easier to focus on what is important

KEY COMPONENTS EFFECTIVE TYPOGRAPHY
  • Just like layout, typography plays an important role in how a user digests the content of the website.
  • Try using all caps and a large font size for the titles and subtitles.

Key Components

THE RIGHT COLOR SCHEME

Choosing the right color scheme is extremely important, because it will set the mood of your design

(More so than any other component)

Don’t let your personal taste interfer with the overall look of your design

Base all aspects of your design on what is trying to be achieved

Make sure your color scheme will appeal to audience you are targeting
