Website design decides how content is to be structured and displayed. A bad design can simply ruins user experience, affecting site traffic, and can also damage your SEO. The concept phase is the most neglected step, when web sites are developed. For this reason sites are rebuilt again and again because the functionality does not serve the users or does not benefit the business.
Integrating a concept design phase saves money on the long run and boosts popularity of your web sites, because it meets the needs of your target audience and creates a pleasant experience for your web site users. This can be done by analyzing and processing the collected information of the project design workshop and drawing up a framework from the results that serve as a guide for the project itself and the web site to be.
The content is a deadly crucial element for a successful website, as it decides what the site is all about. A bad design simply ruins the user experience, thus dooming the site traffic. The creative concept designs of famous websites like Facebook, Google and Youtube, are already very famous and are user-friendly but some creative designers have gone ahead and made even more professional concept designs of these websites.
So what demands for an interesting design of these popular sites? The color scheme which is based on the house style is important. The font type which will be chosen when no consistent font usage exists is to be taken care of, the page layout, the look and feel and the imagery used to support the company’s brand message is also vital. The functionality is designed in a raw draft. The purpose of the site will pretty much define whether it is an e-commerce site, a community portal or multi-media download center.
