Front End Design Tips: When I say good web design for better user experience, I’m talking about the end that the user interacts with while using websites and applications.  

In this post, I want to discuss something with you but because I can’t go through all that’s involved, I will highlight key features.

I remember my years of study and being very confused about different development solutions.  I often hear my instructors say, why do that and not this?

All the material along the way:  Information Systems, SDLC, Agile, Project Management, Photoshop, Illustrator, Framework, CSS, HTML, HTML5, XML, C# Java, PHP. The list goes on that kept my head spinning.

One day my prayers are answered, my understanding became clear.

Today I thank those who taught me along the way, and because of you, I will be forever learning.

Principles of Design

You’re off to a better start In a web project when you understand some core principles of making an excellent design.  

Think about this if you were building a home would you not try to research basic fundamentals before you hand over money to a contractor?  If not, you should you.

Why not think about web design the same way? What information if you knew could help you provide a more pleasant experience for your guests.

Front-End Design Tips For Better User Experience:

  • No who your users are and their needs.
  • Layouts should fit the requirements.
  • Important information should stay at the top of the page.
  • Keep the design consistent in doing so the site becomes easy-to-use.
  • Contrast – color is critical!  Remember, there will be visitors who are color blind so you must ensure the content can be read by all.
  • Remove any features not needed for a task.
  • Make sure there is an understood way of navigating for your users. 
  • Links must stand out for better user experience they should tell a vistor where they are going, and not just “click here”.
  • Graphics should be high resolution. 

Well I could keep writing, but sadly I have to go for now.  I hope what you have read will help in your journey to a successful new web business.
