Tips on Web Design

December 14th, 2006

I’ve been learning about web design mainly by trial and error, and have gradually learned a few things that work. Jonathan Snook has a helpful overview on How I Design (HT: Bloggingpro). He gives these tips on how to emphasize what is important:
1. Make it bigger.
2. Make it closer to the top of the page.
3. Make it a different color.
4. Use a different font.
5. Give it breathing room.

The article also mentions the C.R.A.P. acronym for good web design. It stands for Contrast Repetition Alignment and Proximity. You can read more in the article How C.R.A.P is Your Site Design?

Now that I’ve read these two articles, I realize that there are quite a few things that I need to fix on my blogs. When I have some time.
