Tips on Effective Web Design

Good web designing is not all about making it through the tough economic times. Efficiency has always had a reserved berth while scaling the benefits that web designing has on the 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 that are keeping up the competition alive in the virtual world.


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

Added time – One of the best thing an efficiently designed website gifts the visitor is time. No visitor 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 the visitor. This lot rests entirely with the designer. A little more time devoted to the job of designing can very easily translate into a better user experience.

Promotional aspects – Sound technical skills might not do well to suffice the attention of the bosses on most of the occasions. A promotion is always earned and even if the designer deserves, chances of being outdone cannot altogether be denied. It is thus advised to design in a way that facilitates a higher return to investment value.

Greater profit – For freelancers, all that matters is the profit that is generated from the website. There is nothing that beats professionalism here. A smarter approach towards work best serves the interest of the designer. Sadly, there is no second way to succeed.

Using snippets – In order to achieve the above mentioned ends, the first thing that the designer needs to do is create a library of snippets that can be brought to use again. This library can comprise both conventional code snippets as well as the ones created by the designer. All that the codes need to take care of is that they should be able to deal with most varieties of common HTML content.

The snippet library hands down yield into two scalable benefits. First off, a considerable amount of typing is saved. The more important benefit of a library of these snippets is that they bring considerable consistency in the various projects that are being carried out. In nutshell, the IDs, structure and classes remain consistent over the different projects. This actually saves time when the designer recalls what which component was built to address a particular cause.

JavaScript library – In a similar vein to the snippets, designers should also create a personalize JavaScript library. One of the obvious choices in this regard is jQuerry. It has been designed for designers who bear familiarity with CSS. Besides, it is also extremely light on weight. The best thing about jQuerry is that it is extremely easy to learn for relatively new designers. If used properly, jQuerry can save designers a heck lot of time. Particularly in combating inconsistencies of browsers, there is nothing that beats jQuerry. On top of that, there lies the obvious benefit of not having to reinvent the wheel time and again.
