Lots of people tend to describe their web design services as “high-quality” ones. But what does the word “high-quality”, as defined, is the design quality or not? Well, there are several ways on how to define quality in web design.
After all, if one determines what lets him create awesome web design, he/she can use the same techniques to hone personal style.
Here are the recommendations.
1. Distance between objects on the page.
One of the main advantages of a good website is the rational use of the space between the elements of design. If you pay attention to how certain elements are aligned on the page, you can improve greatly its appearance and create the feeling of a high-quality design. The main error in the determination of the distance between content elements - pinning them to the edges of the page. No matter how stylish the objects themselves are - if they fit them too much onto the page, it will lose style and quality.
Tips on how to align elements on the page effectively:
2. Perfection to the last pixel.
When design is almost done, the end result is already seen clearly. Sometimes it all depends on the smallest details, which user may not notice at all. "Perfection to the last pixel" is the method, when attention is paid to the lines, edges and borders. You can simply insert a line, and you can add a little detail, whether subtle gradient, simple shadow, 1px wide of a highlight - and your work will really stand out.
Tips for excellence in design details:
3. Thoroughly thought-out fonts.
Even though the designer will not write texts for the website, they have an important role in an overall quality of the content. The designer needs to work hard to make the text easily readable and pleasing to the eye.
A short list of requirements for typography in web design:
4. Organization of elements.
Design activity seems attractive because of its creative part. The phrase “working order” does not sound creative and fun, but if you have worked out the habit of good organization, it’s not as dull as it seems at first sight. Organization of web page elements is always different, depending on the type of site, its specifics, and importance of its content.
Despite the fact that deployment of the content varies from case to case, there are several techniques that can greatly facilitate this job. First, you must decide the purpose of this design. For example, either you create website designed to increase sales or filled with any information, subscription service, link directory, etc.
Tips for organizing your content:
5. Restraint and delicacy.
Designers always try to invent something special. But sometimes you can achieve greater impact through restraint. It often appears that there should be fewer design items. Good designers are always able to determine the line, which they shouldn't cross, and try not to overload the layout with lots of design techniques or special effects.
Tips for using sophisticated design tools:
In my opinion, fine details help make the step forward from a good design to a magnificent one. If you think you need to bring something special to your design, subtle details are your choice.
6. Use the whole potential of the color.
People often consider colors as they perceive them, and that is totally wrong. If you need to decide what colors will look good on a website, you should make a decision based on the brand, site's main theme and the mood that color scheme creates.
Tips on using color in design:
Color is always a good area for research and testing of different options and variations, but there are some things that are highly important to keep in mind when choosing colors and color schemes.
7. Do something that nobody had ever done.
Some of the best sites are unusual, strange and somewhat extravagant. But if designer is challenging standards, it usually ends up with changing the concept of what a standard is. However, to be truly original and create something that no one has ever created - it's the hardest thing to be done.
This idea can result in something wonderfully beautiful or something that does not hold the water. A very thin line lies between success and failure. Designer must have the courage to step back from what everyone considers nice and so “valuable”, and here are some examples of this:
