Tips on Designing the Perfect Navigation System for Your Website

Posted in Tips, Usability, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 8 Comments

Where is the Home Button? Does this website even care about its navigation system? And, by the way, why are they using breadcrumbs when I don’t see how it could be useful? Well, navigational menus can be a big turn off for your readers if they aren’t planned well. Although webmasters assume that a simple menu is enough, most of the time yet they forget that a navigational menu has its own requirements. Sometimes a simple to use navigation will do just fine for your website design while at times you will have to click a lot of links into your navigational menu so as to compliment the various branches of your website.

This discussion will pick up some of the obvious forms of websites and then shed some light on how the navigational menu changes for each of them. Hold tight and don’t leave!

What is Pro Bono Work and Why Should You Embrace It

Posted in Freelance, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 3 Comments

Few weeks ago I wrote an article where I torn Spec work apart. There is no reason in going back and I think I should do as promised and explain why I think pro bono work is something you should do to help you build up a portfolio if you are new to the design business and to give a helping hand to different communities.

Pro bono work comes from a Latin phrase and is mostly used to describe professional work delivered voluntarily and without payment or at a highly reduced fee. Pro bono work is increasing in popularity lately in domains such as marketing, technology and yes, web design. Such a concept offers the specific skills of a professional for free to someone who is not able to afford them otherwise. The main difference between Spec work and pro bono work is that pro bono work is usually for a good cause and even if you don’t get paid, it will definitely bring you awareness and allow you to build up a portfolio and earn experience. The reason behind me preferring pro bono work instead of spec work is that it is usually for a good cause. We designers love the nature, optimistic and energetic volunteers and good causes like charity. Why not work for them and earn their respect rather than do Spec work and (most of the time) earn nothing?

Link building is the most difficult task in SEO, no doubt. Why? Because it is time-consuming, and requires careful research, and the results of which are not guaranteed.

Done with college? Time to opt for a real career and get out of your part-time money-earning world? It isn’t easy out there especially when you want to opt for a career option which isn’t as safe as the job of software engineers is.

Just get over Infographics! It is high time that webmasters face the fact that not just every Infographic will be a hit. You are bound to hit walls head first if you don’t spice up your Infographics. There was a time when people had understood the importance of the word Infographic. Soon, almost every heading in my feed had the word INFOGRAPHIC leading the title. It is not the case now because not every Infographic goes viral nowadays.

So, does this mean that the era of Infographics was short lived? Well, not really! Infographics do go viral if they have that touch of brilliance attached with them. One such touch is the interactivity which is pushed along with every new Infographic. Yeah, the Interactive Infographics will soon be the talk of the town. Ready for it?
