How to make your website designs creative?
1. Attract your viewers with colors.
Colors are a great way to attract your viewers, they can be turned on or off on the choice of colors in a design. Your choice of colors could reflect your personality, business, or even what your company is about. Research shows that people are more attracted on bright color. With this, I suggest that you use bright colors for your design, or as according to the theme. And if you will use dull ones, combine them with lively colors to balance the design.
Websites are best attractive when they are designed using colors that can really catch a viewer’s attention while being able to present the image of your company that you want your viewers to remember.
2. Use words that are attractive and make them readable.
Use words that attract viewers. Avoid putting words in a paragraph form, for it makes your viewers get bored on reading them. Make your sentences in a bulleted form and construct them briefly.
Regarding font sizes, most designers use 12px for the body text and H1 or H2 for the headers. The important thing you must consider is to make sure the text is readable. In selecting a font, make sure you choose a clean look of font style that fits the look of the whole website.
3. Use images, graphical buttons or signposts and Flash.
Texts make a website look informative and professional, but if it is only pure texts, it will bore your viewers. To help your website look more informative and enticing, use visuals such images and graphics that would compliment your content. Your visitors might not read your content, but if you attract with images then you can convey your message to them clearly.
Flash is known as the most ubiquitous graphic tool we have now. It is used to enhance images, text, and other elements on a website. But do not overuse this one for it will make your website look less professional. Creating graphical signposts is also a way to attract your viewers. Same with using Flash, do not put too much graphics unless it is a children’s educational website or cartoon-themed.
4. Use banners to attract.
Banners are also a great way to catch your viewers’ attention, and it is also being used to advertise something. If you are going to put a banner on your website, make sure to follow the standard size of banners. Sizes vary depending on what type of banner you would like to put on your website. You can use GIF or Flash banners to put eye-catching effects, just don’t overdo when putting effects.
5. Be appropriate, simple but stylish.
With several websites that are already online, you must stand out in order to achieve your goal for your website. Be appropriate based on what you are trying to represent. Make your web design clean and simple while having that creative touch. Make navigation user-friendly. It is okay to be creative, just do not overdo it.
