When designing a brand new website, you need to change your viewpoint towards the audiences’ end. You have to see what they want to see in an effective and interactive webpage and lay out the layout in that way. The website needs to reflect a friendly attitude towards readiness; only a better layout can help the web developers reach that goal. Websites aren’t only a techie page full of scripts underneath; but there’s also an aesthetic part to it – the layout. To be a truly professional web developer – one has to be concerned about this issue.
Knowing the Appropriate Layout for a Webpage
Not all layouts go with every type of websites. A layout suitable for photo-blogs should never be used for gaming review websites and vice versa. Depending on your product, business or service; choose your website layout wisely. The website should give an idea to the visitors what they are about to see in the first glance and where they can find out more information. Keep it simple and minimal – avoid unnecessary graphical content to keep it lite.
There are certain factors to consider like the header, footer, background and foreground colors, transparency, color schemes etc. All these points combined make a website look good – also use proper highlighting to indicate what is really important and what is lesser.
Also create a ‘to-do’ layout earlier way before you start getting into developing the website. This will give you a heads up of what you need to get done. One layout leads you to perfection of another and improves your skills as well.
It’s all about impression, mostly the first one
First impression is the best impression – is true for websites as well. Your website layout speaks a lot about your website. When your audience sees a nicely laid out website, they would automatically spend more time and visit more pages. They won’t even notice how they are spending more time but they contribute to your traffic and ad revenue. That’s what most website owners look for, right?
To make this impression happen, you need to start designing your website that way. Plan in advance and execute in time. Make the layout creative to keep ahead of others.
A creative layout is all that matters while designing a website from the scratch. Not just a layout for desktop device but also for different display orientations is required as well. All these contribute towards becoming a better web developer.
