Web design is one of the creative industries where it really helps to be on top of your design game.  There are lots of ways to make a website look really professional, and good for your customers to use.  Here are some ideas.

  • Grid layouts: these can make your site look well organised, neat and easy to navigate.  A grid layout sets you content out in a tidy grid, with boxes to help you organise your content.
  • Colours and Fonts: Choose a couple of different colours and fonts and stick to them across the site.  This helps with branding.
  • Links to external sites: popping in links to social media profiles as well as other helpful sites can increase the user experience level.

When you are designing your site, remember that less is often more – you don’t want to go too overboard with colours, patterns and different fonts as this can bamboozle your customers and make your site more difficult to read.
