Tips on Effective Web Design

Good web designing is not all about making it through tough economic times. Efficiency has always had a reserved berth while scaling the benefits that web designing has in business. At the risk of sounding like another post maneuvered around the hard recession times and subsequent effects on web designing, it has to be mentioned that efficient designers are the ones keeping up competition alive in the virtual world.

Here are some useful tips that ride on the back of efficient web designing.

Added time

One of the best things an efficiently designed website gifts its visitors is time. Neither of the  them wants to be spending an eternity jumping from one page to another. There is a lot that can be done to make the job more seamless for visitors. This lot rests entirely with designers. A little more time devoted to designing can very easily be transformed into a better user experience.

Focus on higher return

Sound technical skills might not do well to suffice attention of bosses on most occasions. It is thus advised to design in a way that facilitates a higher return on investment value.

Using snippets

In order to achieve the goals mentioned above, the first thing that designers need to do is to create a library of snippets that can be reused frequently. This library may comprise both conventional code snippets as well as those created by designers. All that the codes are meant to do is to deal with most varieties of common HTML content models.

Having the snippet library at your disposal gives two major advantages. First of all, a considerable amount of typing is saved. And what is even more important is that the snippet library brings along considerable consistency in various projects being carried out. In a nutshell, IDs, structure and classes remain consistent over different projects. This actually saves much time when designers recall what component was created to perform a particular task.

JavaScript library

Similarly to the snippets, designers should also create personal JavaScript library. One of the obvious choices in this regard is jQuerry. It has been created for the designers dealing with CSS. The best thing about jQuerry is that it is extremely easy to learn even for those who have just started working as web designers. If used properly, jQuerry can save designers a great deal of time. On top of that, by applying jQuerry, web designers needn’t reinvent the wheel time and again.
