Web Design Mistakes

Thinking of a good concept for web design?

conceptIf you’re just starting out in web design, it’s normal to want to do things right, but it’s also normal to commit a few mistakes in the beginning. Whether you like it or not, there will always be some details that you missed, there will always be some parts which you may have forgotten to anticipate. All in all, if that’s the case, then you are kind of excused from these mistakes, again, especially if you’re a beginner.

However, there are some mistakes which may be less excusable than others, and in making a tech blog it will be infinitely better for you if you do your best to avoid them. Also, avoiding them will be much better for your website visitors, too.

 

Top Web Design Mistakes to Avoid

errorOne of the most common (and most annoying) web design mistakes are those modals and pop-ups that disrupt your website experience. You’ve seen this before. You click on a link to a news article or a blog post, and a gigantic modal pop-up window covers the content. This makes absolutely no sense. If you’re requesting a specific article, obviously that’s why you’re visiting the site. Let the website viewing and article reading continue undisturbed, and learn to think of a better way to use those modals and pop-ups (example: use it before your users leave your website).

A second mistake is the misuse of too much text, and turning your website into walls of text. The principle behind web design is that you must be able to integrate text, image, and perhaps a little movement or animation into a healthy mix. Thus, if you fill an entire site with text, that surely sends away your website visitors sooner than you think.

Also, beginning web designers have this itch to fill all the available space with something that the users can click on and do something with. But this is a mistake because it only causes your website to look cramped and leaves very little space for your readers to move around in.

In the end, avoiding those mistakes already mean a lot in the ‘Doing Better’ department. Translation: avoiding these mistakes means you’re actually improving in web design.
