30+ Beautiful Website Layouts And One HUGE Mistake

30+ Beautiful Website Layouts And One HUGE Mistake | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Today we will showcase some excellent website layouts from Dribbble to help you get inspired and see what's new in the web design world.

Marty Note
One way we all learn is to look at how each other solves the problem of presentation. This post has some good design ideas, at least one great idea and one huge problem. I am going to put some space before I share my take on each of those in case you want to click the link, form your own ideas and then compare notes.



Marty Picks
I thought that UberSnap site was genius in its very Pinterest approach to an ever changing visual design not unlike the new Scoop.it account master page (http://www.scoop.it/u/martin-marty-smith ).

The huge mistake is the trend to chop off men's heads. What is with that? There are two examples of this huge mistake in these designs. What can be more unsettling to the lizard brain than seeing a headless body pitching a suit or a travel bag. Can designers really be so lost in translation they don't see how spooky, scary and strange it is to loop off the heads of the men? Would they EVER do such a thing to a woman? Let's hope not :).M

A Look At The Current Responsive Design Landscape (And How To Speed It Up)

A Look At The Current Responsive Design Landscape (And How To Speed It Up) | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

When was the last time you visited a website and you were blown away by its performance (i.e how fast you were able to do what you wanted to do)?


The newest iteration of CanIUse.com has that faster-than-a-speeding-bullet kind of feel to it. Not only does it serve up compatibility stats on bleeding-edge features and web technologies, it does it with heroic speed and performance.


This week, Maximiliano Firtman published a thought-rousing article for Smashing Magazine. As a front-end developer, it's a great reminder that the end goal is not a responsive website, but a fast, great experience that happens to be responsive. Not a new thought, but certainly a worthwhile one.


The ultimate goal for a website should be “happy users,” which will lead to more conversions, whatever a conversion might be, whether it’s getting a visitor to spread the word, providing information or making a sale. Users won’t be happy without a high-performing website. — "You May Be Losing Users If Responsive Web Design Is Your Only Mobile Strategy"

New types of element input in HTML5 | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

One of the strangest features of HTML forms is the use of an element with the vague designation input, it creates variety of control elements, starting from check boxes to text fields and buttons. The specific control element depends on the attribute type of element input.

Best Tools for Better Web Typography

Best Tools for Better Web Typography | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Good typography is not only limited to choosing a typeface or deciding one typeface from another. Rather, it is a process of thoroughly arranging type in order to make the language visible. The arrangement considers the selection of line spacing, line length, point size, adjusting the space between group of letters or pair of letters. In addition, it includes the right combination of colors. Typography and content makes up 90% of what the site is. So if you want to have a good looking site you need to pay attention to your typography.


The whole process of creating fonts may be a little tricky and time consuming. However, with the use of various typography tools, the process makes things easy and effective.

How Responsive Design Can Accelerate Your Conversion Rate #infographic | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Responsive design is perhaps the hottest web design trend in the world. And the reason behind this meteoric rise is the growing popularity of Smartphones and Tablets. With more and more people shifting their focus from desktops and resorting to their mobile phones when it comes to accessing the Internet, it was becoming clearer that businesses with traditional websites wouldn’t be able to survive much longer if they don’t cater to their mobile audiences.

C’mon & Play Me Like a Game: Playful Elements in Web Design

C’mon & Play Me Like a Game: Playful Elements in Web Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Are you a serious person in real life? Maybe you are a backslapper feeling at ease in any company. Sometimes you need to tell a joke or two to become the heart of the party. The same trick works in web design. Nobody likes moody, always whining people no matter how talented they are.


Positive emotions are especially important on the web. What do most visitors come here for? Fun? Entertainment? Information? Work? The reasons are varied, but we don’t think that depression is in the list.


Let’s imagine a typical process of a visitor’s onsite stay. The web becomes simpler and moreintuitive each day. Everything is directed toward the user’s convenience. Site owners take into consideration today’s busy lifestyle and try to give the customers whatever they need as quickly as possible.


Using Fun Elements in Web Design


Such an approach is absolutely justified on most websites, where people come knowing exactly what they want to get. But the fact is that not all websites are dedicated to speedy actions, some show or teach new technologies, information, tell about new company products or services. Would you like the user miss the most interesting part of the journey?Just let this sink in for a minute… We guess you will answer something like this “Like hell!”So, even at this stage of our narration we understand that swiftness doesn’t fit each and every website.

16 Simple Considerations for a Mobile Website

16 Simple Considerations for a Mobile Website | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Google’s vice-president of display advertising Neal Mohan has given millions of owners of desktop websites some reason to cheer about.
Neal’s acknowledgement of the flexibility in user behavior towards internet surfing comes through in his statement that “if you’re just focusing on mobile, you’re solving yesterday’s problems”. Point taken! Because the modern day user keeps on moving from device to device during different intervals of the day to aid his constant urge to stay connected for solutions of myriad kinds.


An average internet surfer could be using his hand-held device for quick searches, catching up on emails, reading, browsing, or consumption of exclusive mobile-optimized services in the app domain, and he shifts to a desktop or laptop when in greater need. This user behavior has been pushing top brands to acquire a mobile-first technology, and this is precisely where owners of all desktop websites, especially business websites, need to understand that they too can tap into the diverse interests of today’s users by positioning themselves in a mobile-friendly environment.


Let’s take a look at 15 considerations that unarguably say that a mobile website is an added advantage in today’s multi-polar user environment.
