Visual Trap: Why Obsessing about Your Website’s Visuals is not a Good Idea

Visual Trap: Why Obsessing about Your Website’s Visuals is not a Good Idea | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

Why do you want to create a site? Is it to deliver good looking visuals to your visitors? No! The objective is to drive conversions, generate sales, improve brand visibility and ensure your business reaches a wider audience.

 

Unfortunately, an unnecessary focus on visuals might see you creating a site that is low on ROI. Your target website visitors are interested in getting more information about your business and its products and services from your site. If great visuals help drive brand and business messaging forward, well and good and that should be their primary objective. If they haven’t been picked keeping the website’s goal in mind, they will just serve to distract visitors.

If you're going to obsess about your website, focus on function, not just the photo.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, October 13, 2016 12:01 AM
Are we too obsessed with visuals on our websites that we ignore the quality of the rest of the matter, like the written or descriptive part, or for that effect infographics? A good website will have a balance between the written content and the visual content! I would suggest a ratio of at least a sixty/forty between visual and written content as being ideal!

25 Logos with 3D Effects

25 Logos with 3D Effects | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

The logo design is an important aspect of branding, and it’s an area where many companies place an emphasis. If you design logos for clients you probably enjoy browsing through examples of work from other designers. This can help for observing trends and for providing inspiration for your own logo design work.


In this post we’ll showcase 25 different examples of logos that make use of 3D effects. Hopefully these logos can provide some inspiration that you can put to use on future projects.


Some of the logos use subtle 3D effects like shadows and perspective, while others have a 3D aspect that is one of the first things you notice about the logo. This post attempts to show some examples of the many different ways that these 3D effects can be used.
