Points to ponder upon to get effective web design

Who does not want to build a website that generates good revenue! But to fulfill this purpose, you need to get an effective web design for your website. However, is there any way to know if the web layout is effective or not? Yes, there are quite a good number of points that can clear to you if your site is having an effective web design or not! Starting from business oriented look to proper use of text and graphics there are many good features to ponder upon when you are asking any web designer or freelance graphic designer to design your website layout.

While working with clients every time they ask me how they can get really effective web design for their sites. I tell them just a few points that can really solve their queries:

  • Business oriented design: It is for sure that you must be looking to get a layout that best shows off your business! Every way there cannot be any doubt in visitor’s mind about the business (products/services) the website is designed to serve for. At the same time it is essential to have your contact details (phone no, email address) to reach you. It is the foremost criterion of the effective web designing.
  • Attractive look: It is always advisable that you get web pages designed in an attractive way. Remember the color combination has to be cool (not eye-sore), the fonts need to be normal so that visitors feel comfortable. If you cannot get attractive look then you are not getting effective web design.
  • Balance of text and images: Sometimes it is found that the web pages are either full of images or texts. Remember even the formatting of the text does matter. You should not just pile up anything on the web pages. A layout is having effective web design if the visitors feels urge to view the images and read the texts. If you cannot just make the users concentrate on your products or services how would you ignite desire of using or buying your products or services!
  • Optimized design: Sometimes for lack of designing sense designers use Javascripts, Ajax or even CSS files in haphazard way. And for these very reasons the webpage load time increases. The visitors feel irritated to see blank or half loaded pages. So now you could understand getting effective web design does not limit in having your web pages designed – it does extent to the part of HTML coding and development a little bit.
  • Following modern trend and tools: There cannot be any doubt that your site should go with the trend of time – having option to get socially connected through placing several social networking buttons (Facebook, twitter and others). But some times to provide very much attraction to these tools, designers place the tools in a way that visitors feel irritating in using web pages (placing button hanging on the right or left side in a way that block the text while reading the information or viewing the images). If this thing happens, how could you say you have got an effective web design!

So reading the above points hope you have understood just following some simple steps you can get really nice and truly effective web designing for your website. But you should remember that you need to choose a web or graphic designer who has experience in providing your effective web designs. You should check web and graphic design portfolio of the designer who you are thinking to select for your project.
