Web designers must always consider the client’s objectives on the website and go on to an Information Architecture to set the hierarchy of information on a website and guide the design process. Web designers can now start creating wireframes and finally start on the design stage. They may use some principles to create a pleasing layout and offer an excellent user experience.

Design Principles

Balance-Web designers should make a balanced layout. In web design, we refer to heavy (large and dark colors) and light (small and lighter colors) elements. To achieve a balanced website design, you should use the correct proportion of colors.

Contrast- Contrasting colors are the ones placed opposite one another on the color wheel. Web design comes up with other features where contrast can be applied. Designers check the contrasting colors, shapes, textures, and sizes to draw attention to certain sections of the site.

Emphasis- It is simply highlighting specific important elements of the website design. You should note that emphasizing everything means not emphasizing anything since nothing will stand out in the content.

Consistency-A clean and consistent navigation offers the best experience for your visitors.

Unity-It is the relationship between parts of the website layout and its whole composition.

Web developers also called programmers to take the design created and come up with a functioning website. Design is like a non-interactive form of a website. Developers break the design into its features. They may use HTML or another dynamic approach of applying programming languages such as PHP to develop various site pages. Other developers may use a Content Management System like WordPress or Joomla to streamline development and ensure clients can easily maintain and update their websites.
