10 Easy Steps On How To Create A Good Photography Portfolio

Posted in Tips, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 4 Comments

Creating a showcase of photographs is not an easy task and most of the time the photographers have basic or no knowledge of design at all. Moreover, creating such a portfolio in which the images have to be in focus is a tricky task and even the more experienced designers might fail providing a good layout, therefore I thought of sharing with you a list of tips for designing photography portfolios.

The difference between a web design portfolio and a photography showcase is huge. The focus has to be on pictures, not on content, while the normal way of designing, with the header, content box, sidebar and footer changes totally from a layout to another. The more inspired and original you can be, the better your design will be. When you are a photographer, it is very important to have a platform where you can show clients your work – this has the same importance as for a web designer.

A Guide To Improve Your Website’s Readability Through Colors

Posted in Tips, Tools, Usability, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 4 Comments

Colors exist not only to make your site look pretty. Colors have a more important function – to make your site usable. A pretty site is not something to object against but when pretty colors make the text on site unreadable, this isn’t something to be proud of. This is why a designer must always think of readability first and beauty second when choosing the colors for a site.

When you think about the number of available colors, it looks easy to pick a bunch of them that go well together and are readable. If you stick with classic background colors, such as white (FFFFFF), or very light gray (F5F5F5, FAFAFA, FCFCFC, etc.) and foreground colors such as black (000000), or very dark gray (080808, 050505, 030303, etc.), or the lightest/darkest pair of the main color (i.e. red, green, blue or whatever color you are using) on your site you might wonder why readability is an issue at all. However, sooner or later you will get fed up with these classic combinations everybody is using and you will want something fancier.
