Golden rules of website design


It is not so easy to become a professional designer, but it is quite possible to understand the basic principles of design. With the help of these simple rules, even a novice designer or SMM-specialist can improve the design of their work. If you are a beginner designer, then follow these simple rules and your site will look very professional!

1.Remember the focal point.

Focus your attention on the central object - one important thing, and then guide it through the rest - less important. This will create an order of perception, help to correctly place accents and avoid chaos.

2.Borrow color palettes

Colors are practically black magic. I highly recommend heading over to Dribbble and looking for color palettes there. Or use palette generators like Coolors or Color Claim.

For example, on Awwwards, Siiimple, or Land-book you can see how white space, typography and colors are used. Try Cohesive Colors which allows you to upload an image and match colors to it.

3.Design black and white first, add color later

When you create designs in black and white, you focus on solving problems and designing a product that the user will interact with.

4.Add more “air” in the text

Use more spaces and paragraphs to make the text easier to read and the content to be easily grouped into blocks visually.

5.Align everything The fastest way to fix what looks bad on your site and make the design better is to make sure everything is aligned. When designers talk about the need to use a "grid", they try to alert the team to an alignment issue. 6.The secret of all designers – “almost black” is better than black If you have a choice, try using # 333 333 RGB (51,51,51) instead of pure black for the font. It's just that black text on a white background is a little dazzling in the eyes, which makes it difficult to focus on the letters. 7.Analyze If you see a site you like, analyze it! Try to decompose it into its components. Mark separately what background it has, how it is made, what are the main elements, how they are made, whether brushes or cliparts are used, what stroke the font has, what gradients are used, how the shadow is applied, what techniques are used in the design. Try to understand how the site was made, what was done first, etc. 8.Use no more than 2-3 fonts One of the most common mistakes newbies make is using too many different fonts at once. Fortunately, the golden rule will always help you out, which says that no more than 2-3 different fonts can be used in one project. 9.Train your watchfulness: Seek inspiration and advice from famous designers and successful companies.
