What is Web Design?
Web Design is the planning and creation of a website. Creating information architecture, user interface, site structure, site navigation, colors, characters, and images. The ultimate goal is the user experience (UX – user experience).
The basics of good web design:
-Fast website – great loading speed
-The first page must be well-organized
-No annoying widgets (eg popups, flyers, ads)
-The message should be painfully clear on the main pages (For more information you have to use the Blog category)
-Coordinated design – comfortable for users one
-Easy navigation – a well-organized menu. Most people start reading from the top left and continue reading from the bottom right
-The site must be complete (if you have a site under construction, you better tell visitors that they will find more content in the future, using the phrases “Weekly updated content” or “New products added monthly”).
UX – user experience – the interaction between a real user and products or services such as websites, applications, and physical products. In order to get the attention of the users and keep them on the site, a well-optimized design is required
The basic principle of UX is to create simple web interfaces that are easy to understand and must be intuitive for the user.
What does a UX-compliant website look like?
-The site is easy to use and intuitive
-Information is easy to find
-Buttons and links are functional and intuitive (when you click Add to Cart, the product is added to the shopping cart, nothing else happens)
-In an online store, the ordering process works without errors or interruptions
-It must contain a search bar
-Easy navigation through Breadcrumbs is required.
Design web and UX (User Experience):
-Sketch – drawn on paper
-Wireframe – represents the digital transposition of the sketch
the approximate number of pages, the method by which the pages are linked (menu), and navigation elements.
