Website Design Elements
Many elements of web design use the same key visual features of typical design. Some of these are:
Layout – This is the way that graphics, ads and text are arranged on a page. The goal of a layout is to allow the viewer to seek the information needed at a glance while maintaining the balance, consistency and integrity of the arrangement.
Color – Keeping in mind the client’s personality and purpose, a color scheme is developed. This scheme could be black and white or a multi-colored design that uses web-safe colors.
Graphics – This may include logos, photos, clipart or icons that will enhance the web design, but will not slow down the load time of the page. These will be placed appropriately for user friendliness and will look fantastic with the color scheme and content of the web page.
Fonts – Your web designer will choose a web-safe font that will enhance your website design.
Content – Visuals and text work together to develop the message of your website. The written text will be relevant and useful to the reader, while encouraging him to remain on the website. The content will be:
- Optimized for search engines
- Be of suitable length
- Incorporate relevant keywords
