How To Design Hero Images (With 35 Case Studies) | Canva | Aglika Stoyanova | Scoop.it

While they don’t save the day or wear flashy capes, hero images are a very important and very effective tool in the world of web design. Basically, the term ‘hero image’ refers to a specific type of website banner, usually quite large and at the very top of a website.

 

For sites that use hero images, it is often the first thing users see when they click through to a site. So, it’s probably wise to think of hero images like an introduction – they give users a sense of what to expect from the rest of the site.

 

If you have a sophisticated hero image, they’ll expect class and culture, or if you had a colourful and fun hero image, and they may expect some comedy and playfulness.

 

Whatever your choice of tone, let’s have a look at 35 striking examples of hero images to get you inspired and on your way to crafting your own heroic image today....

How to Use the Psychology of Color to Increase Website Conversions

How to Use the Psychology of Color to Increase Website Conversions | Aglika Stoyanova | Scoop.it

Color wields enormous sway over our attitudes and emotions. When our eyes take in a color, they communicate with a region of the brain known as the hypothalamus, which in turn sends a cascade of signals to the pituitary gland, on to the endocrine system, and then to the thyroid glands. The thyroid glands signal the release of hormones, which cause fluctuation in mood, emotion, and resulting behavior.


Research from QuickSprout indicates that 90% of all product assessments have to do with color. “Color,” writes Neil Patel, is “85% of the reason you purchased a specific product.” It’s a no-brainer fact of any website that color affects conversions. Big time.


So, the bottom line is: use the right colors, and you win....

5 Ideas from Edward Tufte About Compelling Powerpoint Design

5 Ideas from Edward Tufte About Compelling Powerpoint Design | Aglika Stoyanova | Scoop.it

Tufte writes, “Graphical excellence is that which gives to the viewer the greatest number of ideas in the shortest amount of time with the least ink in the smallest space.” These are words to live by for the slide designer.

 

I thought I would share five lessons I’ve learned from Tufte over the years that could easily contribute to more effective presentations.

 

While he emphasizes simplicity and clarity in his graphics, he focuses on the importance of balance and complete, accurate presentation of information. This allows the audience to form opinions and make informed decisions about what they see....
