Title: Common web design mistakes
Post by: BradburnJacob on 02-15-2012, 23:32:50
Quality websites create a positive impression on the visitors.  Such websites get a higher amount of traffic and online business. These websites manage to create a very good initial impression with the help of appealing and user-friendly web designs. The time that you get to leave this impression is just a few seconds.

Those who are not an expert in web designing can approach a web design firm to get the needed  web designing service  (http://www.developmentguruji.com/). 

You should approach only an experienced web design firm to design your website. Lack of proper experience in web designing will create bad web designs that may tarnish your impression before the users.

Here a few common web design mistakes made that you have to avoid.

•   Websites which are slower are not appreciated by the visitors. Your website should download fast, or else the visitors won’t stay long and may go to the website of your competitor.
•   The layout of the webpage should not be cluttered and the navigation links should not be placed in scattered manner.  They should be placed in an organized way.
•   The web content should be free from typing and grammatical errors.  The content for the webpage should be placed in a proper format; neither too big, nor too small.  It can be broken down to paragraphs, with the needed bullet points and sub headings.
•   Give adequate importance to the white space on the web page. 
•   The colors which are used should be pleasing to the eye.
•   Don’t install any built in music arrangement which cannot be controlled by the visitor. The website should have buttons to control the music.
•   Avoid poor layouts that take away the beauty of the website.

Web design is very important for the website. Therefore some mistakes which are done by the designers are like they use flash and animations in the website which takes lot of time for loading. They provide the horizontal scrollbar in the design of the CSS. The layouts of the web page are very poor. There is no any combination of the colors in the design of the website. There is no many importance of the whitespace in the design.

I want to say that every website's design should be easy to navigate because if visitor can't understand your website's sitemap he can't move on inner pages. Therefore every designer should keep in mind the simplicity of website design.

Your website should have a clear layout. If the page is cluttered, it becomes hard to navigate, causing visitors to leave. It is possible to display a lot of content without cluttering the page. For a good web design (https://www.janbaskdigitaldesign.com/website-design-services) example that features multiple products, look at Amazon or AliExpress. While both sites contain a never-ending scroll of products, they are organized in grids instead of being thrown together like a mosaic.

Also, your website should be optimized for mobile devices. Many sites now include responsive design, which allows the web page to adjust elements based on the screen width of the user’s device. The site may also hide elements, change fonts, or remove backgrounds when a smaller screen is detected. These details allow the site to work on any device.
