Website Design Samples

The trends of the internet are always changing, that is why web designers are always in demand. If you are creating a new website design or logo design, it might be good to consider looking at professional website design samples for inspiration.

Slap typefaces have been used for over 200 hundred years, and can really set off a website design sample. An example would be an old west wanted poster. Think about that kind of impact, the way that hits the people who view it. Slap typefaces are usually all capital letters written in bold, demanding attention of the reader.

With the use of slap typefaces, go with some typography. Many web designers have a back ground in some graphic arts, and are familiar with graphic arts programs such as Adobe Photoshop. This is an amazing tool for creating your own fonts, bringing the attitude of a website to full life. If you are not familiar with any graphic design programs, there are tons of fonts people have created for general use. Check them out, try different font sizes and see what catches on or catches your eye.

For some website design examples, good old fashioned minimalism could be huge. Don’t think of family websites, or people on a shoe string budget. Instead imagine huge bold print, with simple color schemes. Get rid of framing everything and just let the fonts and titles do the talking.

Something that is already big but will be growing is sharing on social networking. If there is a link to be able to share a website with friends on facebook.com or twitter.com, they essentially do marketing for you. It’s easier to have people do your marketing for you by word of mouth than any other way, if you can interest the in the first place. Using this process should be easy, and give great benefits.

Huge flashy banners can be so 2005 don’t date yourself, update yourself! Try using a picture a huge picture where people can just scroll down to check out the website design portfolio. These are more interesting and calming than big banners with flashing lights. This can also generate a lot of interest, but be sure users know they can just scroll down, people still have a bit of a phobia when it comes to clicking.

Web users are getting more and more savvy these days. This allows for a more artful use of space within web design. You can try doing things which are a little more intuitive or artistic. This can garner a sense of endearment for a user instead of same old every day website. Web users have been bored by websites for about five years now, it is ok to update.

When all is said and done, you have to make decisions for your website based on what you know. What you know about your target audience, is what you can use from this, and how you can use it.
