Website Design Trends in 2018: Go “Big” or Go Home!
Website design trends for 2018 are pointing towards “go big or go home.”
Designers are using saturated colors, organic or geometric shapes, broken grid layouts, & bold graphics in ways that we haven’t seen before. These trends create interest, and a more artful website design that resonates with the viewer.
It important to create a visually appealing website by using amazing website graphics. When creating an eCommerce website design, the layout, color scheme & content (who you are, what you do and why choose us?) are important things to plan out before development begins, but the graphics are what can take the website from humdrum to exciting.
Powerful eye-catching graphics can inspire emotion, help communicate a message, and direct users to important information within a website when used correctly. But if used incorrectly, customers will leave a website faster than large and oddly placed images can load.
So, here are a few tips to keep in mind when using graphics for a website:
Less Is More:
Don’t overload your website with graphics. One or two quality graphics will go a long way. Use colors, web fonts, and CSS along with graphics to enhance your website to the max.
Web graphics should draw the customer’s eye to important or helpful information. Bad placement can make the website confusing to navigate and the customers will leave to find another source.
Where To Find Images:
