Blunders-Web-Designer-AvoidMillions of websites are being created on internet and hundreds are done on daily bases. Many of these websites are so professionally done but many suffer poor quality or lack of creativity that can inspire visitors.

A website must be free of errors and mistakes that make it less useful. The intension of developing a website is not just creativity but its usability. However, many Dubai web designers focus on color and layout without considering its practicality. Have a look at few blunders that web designers must avoid to make a website more useful.

  1. Lack of Vision

Many web designers focus on creativity and beauty of a website instead of creating a website that deals its client interest. A website is created for visitors, therefore it must be created by keeping in view their interests. Web designers forget to look for the functionality that users are actually looking for.

  1. Creating Invisible Grid-Lines

Web designers consider grids for a website design. Though the grids are invisible, but using strict grid make a design clear and organized. They make a website to fit in browser width without leaving empty spaces at both ends. Grid make page content distributed evenly at a page for readers.

  1. Inadequate Content Treatment

One of the other blunders of web designers is the inadequate use of content. Font size, content HTML and resolution are not pleasing to eyes. Some font sizes do not work for paragraphs or banner headings, so web designers should prioritize structure of content to attract readers.

  1. Using Too Much Flash

Adding flash adds life to a website but too much use of flash makes it less appealing. Despite of its benefits of making a website dynamic, flash takes time to load a page. Many of websites do not have flash and the bandwidth to support flash, therefore it results in big blunder by adding flash there.

  1. Poor Use of Logos and Icons

Web designers come up with poor use of logos and icons. They do not consider proper cutting of logo edges by pen tool in Photoshop or using lasso. JPEG compression artefacts is the major issue that can be avoided by using high-resolution PNG for icons and also for logos. All artwork must be displayed with proper visibility over its native resolution. It makes an icon sharp and clear.

  1. Bad Navigation

Navigation within a website must be flawless that user can move around a website smoothly. Though there are no standardized navigation within a website but it must be done to make website consistent for users. Navigation can be done by hyperlinks or using visual metaphors but web designers should design them to avoid confusion.

  1. Poor Treatment of Images

Some web designers prefer graphics to enhance user experience. They use images and photographs to create a balance in website but many web designers do not consider functionality of images and use them just for beautification of a website that creates a clutter and also results in low page loading speed.

  1. Interface Design Troubles

Some web designers are so much driven for creativity that they tend to make every page of a website unique and creative. Such sort of web design creates confusion both for web designer and users. This blunder makes a website less attractive but more annoying.

  1. Search Box Availability

Users always search for the box where they can get their query done within a website. Non availability or poor positioning of the search box makes a website less usable. User sometimes search for the hidden information on a page that they can get by using search box. Web designers must consider instant availability of search box to users.

  1. Click Here To Enter Site

Web designers must avoid creating a page with “click here to enter site”, when a user has reached this page, he has already entered a website, so a web designer must entertain him with the information he is looking for, by taking him to the relevant content.
