Web Graphic Designing: 6 Important Tips That Will Help You Stand Out from The Crowd
Coming back to the tips, here we go!
1. Have High Quality Content. Content is King. If you can provide easily digestible information fast, your readers and visitors will love you for it. Web users, while looking for information online, want immediate gratifications. They don’t read, they just scan. Most common users select the first link that could lead to the goal. Create content keeping this fact in mind. Write short and concise phrases, following the ‘scannable layout, plain and objective language’ template. Also, provide user-friendly print editions for good user experience.
2. Go all-out for simplicity. Don’t showcase your designing skills. Keep your site and pages, clutter-free and easily navigable.
3. Avoid using too many Call to Action (CTA) buttons: It will annoy your readers. Users want to have control. So, never open links in a new browser.
4. Make your pages clear and self-descriptive. Have consumable pieces of information for your readers.
5. Have clear structure, moderate visual clues, identifiable links: A confused visitor will leave your site at once. So, guide him gently and smoothly with moderate visual clues, identifiable links.
6. Provide white space solutions: Surfing puts lots of strain on your eyes, especially if you have to read huge pieces of content to find what you could be interested in. So, have lots of white spaces to calm the ‘tired and strained’ eyes of your readers and visitors, and keep them glued.
