Knowing How To Web Design Very Productively
Is it possible to create a well-designed, effective website without templates or software programs? The answer to this question varies according to what you are prepared to learn about the process. If your goal is to get credit for doing next to nothing, then you might as well continue to use programs and templates to do your work. If you are eager to learn about web design, you will be able to create your own excellent website without many props. Read on, and you will find a number of easy, practical tips for creating your own website.
Make sure your site passes the NoScript test. Download and activate the NoScript extension for Firefox and see if your site is still readable. Some content, such as ordering systems for products, can’t work without scripts, but if your site is simply blank with scripts turned off, that’s bad news.
Avoid using too many graphics. While graphics are important to give your website a professional, cohesive and well-designed look, using too many of them can create clutter. You should never use graphics simply to decorate your site; they are used to improve your site. Having the appropriate number of graphics that do not create clutter improves the usability of your website, too.
Website design, despite many myths, is not impossible or overly complex. You won’t have to go to school, and you definitely aren’t holding anyone’s life in your hands. If you are able to use the tips provided above, you should be able to design an amazing website today.
As primarily an online print leaflet and flyer printing company (you can get a budget web design service here!)we generally don’t get involved in a lot of the other areas of the print industry that exist. We stick to what we know best, and what we’re REALLY good at – and we don’t think there’s anything wrong with that! However, a lot of the design work that we do ends up being part of a wider range of products and sometimes we have to allow for that. Sometimes, we even do design for the customer, knowing that the print will be done elsewhere. It’s all part of the service though, and we are pleased to do it!
Cheap vinyl banners is one thing, and we are great at that, no question. However, our customers are often orchestrating an entire promotional campaign of which ours is only a small part. Customers are often wanting their print as part of a new business, for instance, so are often wanting things such as printed banners, signs and brochure printing. When designing our leaflets we are often taking into account the other items that may have to be printed – the logos and colour schemes will need to work across a range of media. Resolution is important – any images that are used as part of a leaflet design must initially be obtained at a high resolution, just in case (for instance) they are ever needed to be part of exhibition stand designs. Often, a low resolution image is suitable for a business card, but forward thinking is needed to prevent this resolution issue from happening down the line. After all, when a customer pays for design work they do actually OWN the design, so if they request the artwork at a later stage to use on another project, everyone is going to be much happier if the artwork and imagery is ready to be printed at almost any size. Exhibition stands often require images up to 40mb in size if they are to be printed to sizes more than three metres wide, which is fairly common. As we have access to a full image library, these sizes are easy enough to obtain and that’s what we try to do wherever possible. These large images can cost the domestic user large sums of money, but with a trade account they often cost the same. Another reason to use a professional design service instead of going the DIY route!
