7 Mistakes Every Web Designer Should Avoid to Create a High-Quality Website

[1] When pursuing the goal of creating a high-quality web resource or smartphone application, one cannot do without web design in the first place. Sometimes, due to inexperience, design specialists can make some mistakes. Such errors can prove to be critical and can affect the first impression users will have when visiting a website.

In this article, we will talk about the mistakes that most affect the positive perception of users.

Hard to read text

By placing various information on the pages of a website, designers forget that any text should be readable. They may pay more attention to putting all the necessary information on the page and forget about how the text looks to other users.

The problem lies in the unsuccessful selection of the background or font. In an attempt to achieve uniqueness, experts can choose a background that does not contrast with the color of the text, as well as a font that looks beautiful, but it is impossible to see the letters.

A huge number of elements

Many experts think that if you add as many elements as possible, you can increase the expertise of a web resource. However, in most cases, many elements can cause users to defocus their attention. If you use a lot of elements that do not make any sense and are only used to create a general picture, then you risk preventing visitors from absorbing information and content.

To prevent this, you can experiment with text separators, reduce the number of blocks, and if you use images or illustrations that have a lot of elements, then you have the opportunity to remove unnecessary objects using the background remover by Retoucher.

Also, to solve this problem, specialists can add more white spaces and elements to visually free up space. It is also worth remembering that the free space around the main elements can focus users’ attention on them[2] 

Placement of accents

Inexperienced designers may not understand the essence of the content that should be placed on the website when drafting the design. In this regard, they may not understand where the main accents should be. With the help of the correct arrangement, you can effectively and quickly convey the necessary information to the reader. However, if you highlight the wrong places, then the headings will not fulfill their function.

As a result, we see that the site looks beautiful, but the information that was supposed to perform an attractive function does not work at all.

Lots of words

Words have great power, but too much text can only spoil the overall impression. To attract the attention of the visitor, it is enough to choose the most powerful and effective words. However, sometimes specialists try to fit as much text as possible.

At the same time, information blocks look like pages in books. If books do not need to attract the attention of readers with accents, images, and videos, then on Internet pages it is important to try to get rid of monotonous text.

As a result, users lose vigilance and ceases to understand the essence of the text. All they start thinking about is how to quickly close this web page. If you need to put a lot of information, then use the semantic block division method.

Rejection of the general style

Designers are very creative and out-of-the-box thinkers. However, sometimes this can work not in their favor. When receiving an order to create a website for a company, designers can abandon the overall style and create a new color scheme for the website. This can cause dissatisfaction among the company’s customers who are used to standard colors. Also, in this way, you can cause negative emotions in the customer. In this regard, in order not to encounter such a problem, it is necessary to coordinate all aspects with the customer so that the final design of the site looks the way the customer wants.
