Tips for the most appealing web designs

08.11.12

Are you in the process of purchasing a brand new website for your business? If so, it’s likely that you’ll be looking for the most appealing web design possible; after all, aesthetics are part of the lure when it comes to attracting (and keeping) new clients and customers. But how do you ensure that your website is as attractive as you want it to be?

  • Layout and sequencing: A client visiting your website for the first time should be able to clearly see all of its features. This means that you need to think like a prospective client when designing the site; you don’t want contact information off the bat, you want to find out more.
  • Spacing: Whilst you may think that empty space is wasted space, anyone who works in web design can tell you that this can actually help to prevent users from feeling overwhelmed. Make sure that your content is spaced evenly and proportionally.
  • Technicalities: Even though you may have fallen in love with a particular font, you need to make sure that it is a HTML standard font otherwise it won’t work as you like. Your designer should be able to provide you with advice regarding this point.

The final piece of advice that we can offer you in regards to generating the most appealing website possible is leaving it up to the pros. If you have absolutely no experience with web design, do not attempt to create your layout by yourself; hiring someone who has spent years doing just this will ensure that your design is as attractive as possible.
