A Guide To Improve Your Website’s Readability Through Colors

Posted in Tips, Tools, Usability, Web Design3 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.

Posted in Inspiration, Showcase, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 10 Comments

Hotels cannot be tagged as a second home for most of us (other than those executives who tend to spend their lifetimes in hotels) but the time spent in a hotel somehow sticks with us. Not saying that life never gifted me with the luxury that a hotel serves but still! The hotel industry has grown leaps and bounds due to their efficient on-spot service.

A Beginner’s Guide To Web Advertisements For Bloggers

Posted in Blogging, Inspiration, Tips, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 4 Comments

Advertisements on almost every website (blogs to be precise, as the line between a website and a blog is diminishing quickly) look visually familiar to me although some people believe they don’t belong on websites at all.

The subject of today’s discussion will be the art of marketing and how we seem to take the same for granted. Remember, you must be selflessly selfish while giving away ad spots on your website. Otherwise, your client will give away the money during the first deal but might not renew the same due to negative results.
