Five Web Design Tips for Novices

  1. 1. <ul><li>Five Web Design Tips for Novices </li></ul><ul><li>If you require a web designer, please get in touch with Neogain as we provide excellent UK web design services. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Each week we post website design, development and SEO tips on our blog. </li></ul><ul><li>If you’ve not subscribed to our blog please take a moment to subscribe. </li></ul><ul><li>Looking for UK website design services? </li></ul><ul><li>Please get in touch. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Tip 1 – Don’t compromise on your template / theme design. </li></ul><ul><li>If short on time or experience pay for help. </li></ul><ul><li>You can spend hours using Google trying to find the tip to resolve your nightmare CSS issue. </li></ul><ul><li>Often just knowing where to begin can eat up time you need to invest elsewhere. </li></ul><ul><li>So tip 1 is basically contact Neogain if you require website design help! </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Tip 2 – Utilise resources from around the world. </li></ul><ul><li>You should try to build your own repository of resources, which will help your website become more unique. </li></ul><ul><li>However that being said, time is important and progressing your projects probably should be a priority. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Whether you need a logo designed, a photo of an object, else a theme tweaking, you can either find free resources for personal and / or business use online, else hire someone to create the desired item. </li></ul><ul><li>For logos check out fiverr. </li></ul><ul><li>For photos sxc and for your web design needs? </li></ul><ul><li>Neogain of course! </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Tip 3 – You probably don’t need PhotoShop. </li></ul><ul><li>You hear so much talk about Adobe PhotoShop, but in reality many just don’t need this great software. </li></ul><ul><li>Converting an image? Microsoft’s own Paint application can handle simple file format conversions, as can the amazing Gimp. </li></ul><ul><li>Need to resize, sharpen or crop an image? </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Again there is the Gimp that can handle most novice graphical requirements, and for those requiring some more features perhaps a cheap old version of PaintShop Pro, such as version 9. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Tip 4 – Backup your revisions. </li></ul><ul><li>A tweak here, an update there and the look of a design can seriously change. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether updating banners, logos, CSS code or other graphical elements, it is wise to make a backup of the original before you proceed. </li></ul><ul><li>You never know when you might need the original and often recreating an image is impossible, else time consuming. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Tip 5 – Test your web design. </li></ul><ul><li>There are different scenarios where testing your design can make a tremendous difference. </li></ul><ul><li>An arrow, bold text or change of colours in an advert or banner can sometimes increase conversions. </li></ul><ul><li>A simple piece of code to accommodate a popular web browser could make your website accessible to a wider audience. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>A web design is never complete, but should be viewed as a work in progress, as markets change, browsers adapt, new technologies emerge, as well as content possible evolving. </li></ul><ul><li>For browser screenshots, please check out Browsershots. For testing different elements of a web page, please look at Google’s Website Optimiser. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>If you require a web designer in the UK, </li></ul><ul><li>please hire Neogain. </li></ul>
