Pixels are small, for a web design to go from good to great it is about getting the small details right. The details most people donï¿½t realise are not quite right.
Ensuring every pixel on your Brisbane website design is displaying the correct colour is the biggest of those small details.
Here are five areas where slight pixel inconsistencies can take the polish off an otherwise great website:
Consistent Font Sizing
Throughout your site you will have a handful of fonts you use every time and donï¿½t change to keep branding consistent. For example, ensure you are using size 24 for all your headings. Not having consistency in your fonts can casue a discconect with your customers, making it difficult for them to recognise what you’re trying to portray. Get it consistent.
Colour coding on websites is not easy, there is 1000+ possibilities of colour, all with minute differences, many difficult to see to the naked eye. But some people will notice the difference.
When you are getting your web design created for the first time, make sure you have the colour codes for every colour included in your web design. It will save a lot of headaches in the future.
All Borders Are Looking Good
Depending on the amount of whitespace on your website, you may find yourself being able to skip this step (padding and margins below will be more important the more whitespace you have). Borders around text and pictures make pictures nice, but when the borders alter with different thickness they become tacky — define the rules for border sizes and stick with it.
Perfect Padding And Margins
The margins and padding is related to any sidebars on your website and the number of pixels between blocks of texts and borders. These need to be consistent, and like borders, can make your website look tacky in quick time. The hardest part about padding and margins is ensuring they look good on all viewing devices, so make sure to have your website tested on various devices before hitting the publish button.
Improving your store is never ending, it comes down to getting every single pixel right. When you are starting out, your Brisbane web design can still look good without being pixel perfect. As you begin to grow, ensuring you are at the maximum level professionally means getting the small details right.
