5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Web Design Basics
Love these five web design basics:

* Learn TYPE Design.
* Pick Great Fonts That Fit Your TONE.
* Pick 3 Color Palette & STICK TO IT.
* Photos = RIGHT SIZE.
* When In Doubt, Give It SPACE.

This last tip is our favorite. Nothing we hate more than claustrophobic web design. Problem is claustrophobia is easy to create. We all WANT to do so much.

When I was an Ecommerce Director we studied our links carefully. We found that 5% of our links received 90% of the clicks. That equation turned out to be a fractal. No matter how small we cut it, no matter how we shifted the design, a small % of the links dominated.

This means MOST of what WE, as designers, think is important isn't. We learned to be Google - Vicious about what we added. Adding meant something had to COME OFF the design. This strange User Interface math means you have more ROOM than you realize.

Find what matters and LINK IT. Design what matters and eliminate the flotsam and jetsam so you have SPACE around what matters since it is that SPACE that signals IMPORTANCE to your visitors.  .

Fabulous#design #advice from Marty Smith. It reminds me that when you are not an #expert in something, get someone who is to help guide your #success

Art Jones's curator insight, November 12, 12:26 PM

If you were only able to follow one rule, follow rule #5


5. When in doubt, give it space


The most important design tip is also the simplest: “Make sure your content has breathing room; give it proper margins will help with legibility and focus.

The Internet With A Human Face | Beyond Tellerrand 2014 Conference Talk

The Internet With A Human Face | Beyond Tellerrand 2014 Conference Talk | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Marc [Thiele] emailed me a few weeks ago to ask if I thought my talk would be appropriate to close the conference.


"Marc," I told him, "my talk is perfect for closing the conference! The first half is this incredibly dark rant about how the Internet is alienating and inhuman, how it's turning us all into lonely monsters.”


“But in the second half, I'll turn it around and present my vision of an alternative future. I'll get the audience fired up like a proper American motivational speaker. After the big finish, we'll burst out of the conference hall into the streets of Düsseldorf, hoist the black flag, and change the world.”


Marc said that sounded fine....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

This is a really inspiring presentation by Maciej CegÅ‚owski. Highly recommended if you're hungry for ideas. 10/10

Blogs are not dead, despite what you've heard. And this is great news for those working in the adult industry who are blocked from using Facebook and other giant sites. Click the links in the article for detailed info.

The concept of individuals creating their own content will endure, platforms may come and go but the essence of origianal content is fundamental to the future of the internet and society as a whole.
