Handy Tips For Web Designers

December 20, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Web designing is not as easy as it is made out to be. Since browser and operating system incompatibility remains one of the largest issues in this area for some time now, it has become obvious to the experienced and the rookie web designers that there are more challenges to this field than what is presented.

So here is a list of handy tips that a web designer must keep in mind in order to succeed in the field of web design:

#1: Images

While images can enhance the appeal of a webpage, it is no good trying to stuff your page with images since most users normally use a dial-up connection to surf the web.  If your page loads slowly, you can be sure they would be gone in no time. So, keep your page size to less than 30k per page.

#2: Navigation & Functionality

Regardless of whether you have created a masterpiece of a website, when the user reaches the main page, navigation and functionality can either work in your favor or not.

#3: Mystery Meat Navigation

One trick used commonly is to hide the link until the mouse hovers over it.  In applying this technique to your page, you can end up annoying your users since they will have to move their mouse all over the page to find the invisible link they are looking for.

#4: Browser-specific functions

Stay away from these as they might support one browser while not supporting the others.

#5: KISS

Just keep it simple, stupid.
