Web Design does not necessarily have to be as complicated as it may seem. With a little ingenuity and some creative work a website with a clever web design can take form.

web templates web design website development

Web Design does not necessarily have to be as complicated as it may seem. With a little ingenuity and some creative work a website with a clever web design can take form. To get started one must think about what they like best about other websites. What is it that they have that your website doesn’t have? What is so special about their site that brings in so much traffic?

If you are looking to have a web design that has great graphics and visual effects that will catch a viewers eye then the first step is to find a template that matches your desired web design. A template is the first step to a web design, it is you skeleton if you will. Finding a template that has all that you want plus the graphics that may suit you best is not too difficult. It just requires you to spend some time on the internet searching through the hundreds of companies that offer template services. In one of those companies you are bound to find something that you like. Not to mention that with the use of a template you can have a uniform professional web design.

Once you have the template picked there is that pesky matter of the content on your web page. A reader will not want to read something that makes them feel that they are reading a school textbook. They are going to want something that is entertaining and feels enjoyable to read.

Easy navigation through the web design will aid in the viewers ease through out the website making it user friendly and pleasant. To do this make room for navigation cues that are on the website directly and in a logical place on the page. For example it is best to have the navigation cues at the top or the bottom of the page as opposed to the middle of the page.

Don’t forget about HTML. That code that does wonders for any website that it is put on. HTML can aid in the efficiency of a web design and help to produce a much more attractive web page. It will can also add to the entertainment of the content by adding color, changing size etc.

Putting all of this together may seem a lot at first. However, breaking it down step by step in the web design process will make designing that website easy, fast and more efficient bringing in the desired traffic. With just a little time you web design can be a fun creative endeavor.

Product Description

Praise for the second edition of The Design of Sites   "In my worldwide IBM marketing role, I have the benefit of working with some of the finest international interactive agencies and internal Web teams. As I read The Design of Sites, [I see] the insight from years of professional advice has been put to paper. Nowhere have I seen such a practical, effective, and easy-to-use book to solve and avoid Internet design issues. I keep a copy of the book handy to remind me of the things I forgot and to gain fresh perspectives. It never fails to deliver." -John Cilio, marketing manager, IBM System x & z Storage Synergy "The Design of Sites artfully brings forward the original intent of Christopher Alexander’s pattern language into the user experience design arena. It is a valuable and comprehensive reference." -George Hackman, Jr., senior director of User Experience for User Interface Guidelines, Patterns and Standards, Oracle Corporation "The Design of Sites is one of the best tools I have in my usability toolbox. [These] Web UI design patterns make it easy for me to show my clients how to get the most usability bang for their buck." -Claudia Alden Case, usability consultant and interaction designer, Alden Case Enterprises, Inc. "If only biology class had been like this. Lucid text, bulletproof content, and a comprehensive taxonomy that’s just as much a source of inspiration as it is a production tool. This is a really, really good book. If you build Web sites, read it." -Marc Campbell, author of Web Design Garage Praise for the first edition of The Design of Sites "Stop reinventing the wheel every time you design a Web site! The Design of Sites helps you rethink your Web sites in terms of genres and patterns. Once you have identified the patterns and applied the best practices for those patterns as outlined in this book, you will reduce your design effort by 50 percent . . . at least!" -Pawan R. Vora, vice president, Information Architecture, Seurat Company "The content [in The Design of Sites] could make a novice into a seasoned professional over a weekend. Many companies pay a fortune for the information contained in the book’s primary chapters." -John Cilio, marketing manager, IBM System x & z Storage Synergy "This book has many handy checklists for what you should and should not do in creating a conventional Web site. Just following the authors’ suggestions would put your site in the top few percent for readability and usability." -Jef Raskin, creator of the Macintosh computer and author of The Humane Interface "Now that The Design of Sites has made its appearance, we won't have to put up with those poorly designed Web pages. These authors have captured patterns from successful Web designers, including their own experience in consulting and teaching, and have made this information accessible to all of us. The book is readable yet full of worthwhile information--a valuable addition to any Web designer’s bookshelf." -Linda Rising, independent consultant and author of The Patterns Handbook, The Pattern Almanac 2000, and Design Patterns in Communications Software "[The Design of Sites] bridges the gap from theory to practice and makes it possible for people in the Web-design space to use user-centered design principles in their work—without having to undertake extensive training." -Maya Venkatraman, human interface engineer, Sun Microsystems "The coverage [in The Design of Sites] is excellent--issues go beyond the traditional ‘design the best page’ focus and do a good job of showing the context. I haven’t seen any other book with the kind of breadth this has." -Terry Winograd, professor of computer science, Stanford University, and editor of Bringing Design to Software "With this book as a reference, you can benefit from what companies like Yahoo! have learned and apply it to your site, even if you don’t have a design and research team similarly sized and staffed." From the foreword by Irene Au, director of User Experience, Google; former vice president of User Experience and Design, Yahoo!
