A website is actually a display window of the company or an organization. Hence, its important that it should be designed well as it would be beneficial to not only retain the existing users but attract new ones as well. Enlisted below are certain important factors that every website designer should keep in mind while designing the websites:
Make use of some basic fonts such as Arial: or Times New Roman, which are installed on every computer. If you use a font that is not installed on the visitors computer, so the web browser will automatically choose a default font and this will damage the look and design of your website. So, utmost priority has to be given to the font type and size being used on the website.
Colors can enhance or break the look of your website. Use a balanced color scheme. The colors chosen should be as such that makes the content readable on the webpage. If the content is not readable, then it is bound to leave a bad impression on the visitors.
Make sure that if you use graphics or any type of flash animations on your website, it should be properly placed. While designing a website it should be given top most importance as it can annoy or distract the users of that website.
