Web Design > Best Website Design Practices

Best Website Design Practices include :

Text
Background does not interrupt the text
Text is big enough to read, but not too big
The hierarchy of information is perfectly clear
Columns of text are narrower than in a book to make reading easier on the screen
 
Navigation
Navigation buttons and bars are easy to understand and use
Navigation is consistent throughout web site
Navigation buttons and bars provide the visitor with a clue as to where they are, what page of the site they are currently on
Frames, if used, are not obtrusive
A large site has an index or site map
 
Links
Link colors coordinate with page colors
Links are underlined so they are instantly clear to the visitor
 
Graphics
Buttons are not big and dorky
Every graphic has an alt label
Every graphic link has a matching text link
Graphics and backgrounds use browser-safe colors
Animated graphics turn off by themselves
 
General Design
Pages download quickly
First page and home page fit into 640 x 460 pixel space
All of the other pages have the immediate visual impact within 640 x 460 pixels
Good use of graphic elements (photos, subheads, pull quotes) to break up large areas of text
Every web page in the site looks like it belongs to the same site; there are repetitive elements that carry throughout the pages

Testimonials

Working with Jaytech was a breeze. We do the talking and they did the work.
- Todd Leslie, Brassfit Engg

Our website was redesigned and we saw the returns straight away. We get more phone calls than ever. Our budget for Yellow Pages was well spent in redesigning our website.
- Nicola Johns, Probiotics NZ

My laptop died and I bought another one through Harvey Norman. We got Jaytech to help us with the migration of our Emails and Business Data. They also set up an user friendly Backup System which works automatically or with touch of a button.
