When it comes to web design Glasgow, many people are of the opinion that all that matters is the aesthetics.
“I think it would look better with a different shade of green … and if we would place the company logo on the other side of the screen.” However, there are so many other things to consider. Designing or even redesigning a website is not only about the way it looks, but also the way it functions.
Your website should be well conceived taking into account, your competitors, customer expectations, user journeys and design aesthetics. At Elements Website Design we always ensure that a clear strategy is agreed before we commence with the web design in Scotland.
Web Design Checklist
We are a web design company from Scotland, UK and here are the most important guidelines we focus on when designing websites. .
Over the years, we have encountered numerous clients for web design in Glasgow who wanted to create websites that stand out from the crowd. Some asked us to add as many images as possible or insert certain design elements in order to fill in the blank space. We consider that just as Leonardo da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. We suggest using minimal colours in the web design Glasgow, as well as no more than three different typefaces in three different sizes. We think this is the best recipe for an excellent clear website design.
We consider that the website should pay for itself and ensuring it has intuitive navigation is mandatory for helping visitors find exactly what they are interested in a lot easier and faster.
Smartphone usage is up 394%, and tablet usage is up a whopping 1,721 % in the past 4 years.
These platforms now combine to account for 60 percent of digital media time spent.
Web designers in Scotland have to make sure websites can be easily accessed on every device.
We will ensure your website is accessible and user-friendly on all mobile devices, be it laptop, smartphone or tablet.
Internet users have become accustomed to specific web design Glasgow conventions such as placing the main navigation at the top of a page, placing the company logo at the top either left or centre of the page, clicking the logo redirects a visitor to the homepage and so on. Even though these might sound like clichés, it is recommended to keep them in mind when designing a website, and we do. We focus on the most important elements, resort to some other design strategies and use them to your advantage in order to design a user friendly but unique design.
At the end of the day, the user is the most important element. It is for them you are designing your website after all. We work to the checklist when developing all our websites.
