Do's and Don'ts of Successful Web Design

Do's and Don'ts of Successful Web Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
This article features essential Dos and Don’ts that you should be aware of before creative and successful web design process.


Designing a website is always an exciting challenge for every designer. There is no defined rule for making a website’s design. It always depends on your requirements. Your deigning choices will be according to the site in which you are going to publish. Whether they are personal sites, entertaining sites, blogs, and corporate sites etc. every site has different set of guidelines that you need to follow. These guidelines can be in term of content or the presentation of the content on the website. At the end, it will mostly depend on the visitors that will log on to the particular site. Reacting according to audience is the best thing that any designer can do.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, Today, 12:13 AM

I agree with Brian. I've been in several hundred design meetings and helped design more than 100 websites. The more stuff we create the more website design feels like it should follow the rules of Improvisation:

1) Don't Deny

Denial is the number one reason most scenes go bad. Any time you refuse an Offer made by your partner your scene will almost instantly come to a grinding halt. Example: Player A) "Hi, my name is Jim. Welcome to my store." Player B) "This isn't a store, it's an airplane. And you're not Jim, you're an antelope."

2) Don't ask open ended Questions

Open ended questions (like "Who are you?") are scene killers because they force your partner to stop whatever they are doing and come up with an answer. When you ask your partner and open ended question, you put the burden of coming up with something "interesting" on your partner - so you are no longer doing a scene together but forcing one person has to do more work than you are willing to do.

3) You don't have to be funny.

The hidden riddle of improv is that the harder you try not to be funny the more funny your scene is going to be. Why? Because it's the very best kind of improv scene you can do is an "interesting" scene, not necessarily a "funny" one. When you do an interesting scene, a very surprising thing happens… the funny comes out all by it's self.

The best ways to go are to stick to your character, stick to the story that is being told, and to stay within the reality of the scene you are playing.

4) You can look good if you make your partner look good.

When you are in a scene, the better you make your partner look the better the scene is going to be and, as a direct result, the better you are going to look. All too often, I've seen players enter a scene and I can just tell they have some really great idea about the character they are going to play or an idea they want to do. This is wonderful, but guess what? Your partner probably has absolutely no idea what's cooking in your evil little mind, and so has no idea how to react. And no matter how brilliant your idea might be, it's practically worthless if the scene as a whole goes bad.

5) Tell a story.

Storytelling is probably the easiest rule to remember but the hardest one to do. The real magic of improv is when we see the players take totally random suggestions (like a plumber and a cab driver selling shoes in a leper colony ) and somehow "make it work". If all these unrelated elements are going to come together then it's going to happen in the course of an interesting tale. So that's just what the players are going to try and do, tell us all a story.

10 Web Apps Every Web Designer Should Know Of

10 Web Apps Every Web Designer Should Know Of | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

I guess there is a little bit of wordplay in the headline, and to clarify that it’s true – this is a list of web apps that web designers should be aware of, and not necessarily use. (at least, not all at once)

You might wonder, what is the point of the post then? Well, to be fair – often times we hear of these applications and sort of see how they could help us, but never really dedicate ourselves to using them. This list will remind you of what is out there, and perhaps inspire you to begin using some of the apps, to make your workflow much easier.

Photography Portfolio Website Enhancement | It looks like the modern web was created for photographers. It’s such a strong photographic medium where stunning imageries have an unbelievable influence and having your own website is a great method to promote yourself and bring your photographs to the consideration of the world. Whether it’s just for entertainment, or a thoughtful determination for self-promotion, even an unpretentious website with a photo gallery and a contact page can be very effective. A personal website is an all-in-one pointer at your profession as a photographer. Not only is it the perfect podium to display your work but it also shows potential customers you’re professional and relevant. However, when was the last time you viewed every single page of your website, clicked on every link and read every word on it?
