Hey everybody! Welcome to The third part of our series where we explore how to make your web designs work for you. Join Gabe in this third of five parts as we explore five simple tips to help simplify and bring focus back to your web designs!
It seems like everyone these days has a website–from grumpy cats to giant corporations, there’s a website for and by everyone–and you might be feeling left out not having
a space on the internet to call your own. There’s plenty of tools out there to make your own website, but what really makes for a good design? In this series, we’ll talk through our top five tips for focusing your design so you can have a website that you can be proud of.
Trimming Your Page Count
Our third step to bringing focus into your web designs is to trim down your page count. Putting your web designs on a bit of a diet is always a good idea. There is no better way to drive focus on your messaging than literally removing distractions! It’s easy to get caught up in sharing your story and trying to show off to folks everything that your brand or your project is about. But is everything necessary? Is it absolutely necessary to have a page talking about the project, and another page talking about yourself? Why not combine the two of them together? Having a smaller page count can also help with managing your menu size and clean up the overall page layout. There’s nothing more daunting than a menu with ten different sub menus to different pages talking about the same things.
So revisit some of your pages and put your design on a diet! Join us next time for part four of this series, where we’ll be talking about putting your message above the fold.
