Design has to tick many boxes on a conscious and subconscious level with your potential customers. Within seconds of them hitting your website they instinctively decide if they want to stay. You have 8 seconds maximum! Their decision is based on these simple conscious and subconscious processes… its automatic.
Your design and positioning must suit their needs, it must have the right balance and alignment, the colours must set the right mood and your text starting with the right font must captivate, educate and inspire. In essence your pages and website as a whole must be very, very sticky!
7 Key Design Principles
ALIGNMENT creates a sharper, more unified design.
BALANCE provides stability and structure to your design. Using the right sizes and shapes matching your natural vision patterns and process means an easy to use website.
COLOURS set the mood for an emotional response from your visitor. Be it an enquiry, sale or subscription.
CONTRAST is the most effective way to emphasise and generate impact with a design.
HIERARCHY creates a solid structure, organisation and direction. A good site will have a funnel or path (your desired action or sale) that takes the visitor buy the hand from entrance to exit in as few a steps, with the least resistance as possible.
REPETITION unifies and strengthens a design by tying together otherwise separate parts.
TYPOGRAPHY or Font is key and must give clarity, emphasise areas and actions and must match the site design, business model and market type.
