Make Design Fit Content
Why should you website design fit with the blog content?
Getting started with your own blog or website can be both fun and tiresome, exciting and trying all at the same time. A common mistake that many people make when getting the basics down for a personal or business blog or website is that they try to create the look and design of website before they consider what the content is going to be like.
Thinking about design before content is like buying insurance without going over the fine print. Those who buy insurance without researching first could end up dealing with bad faith insurance claims lawyers; those who design and create without thinking about content first could end up with a website that no one visits.
To avoid creating a dud website then you have to think about content before design. Once you know what the site is going to be about and what kind of content you are going to put on your site, then you can start figuring out the design based on what the content will be like.
Another thing to remember about making design and content fit together is the quality of both . You could have some really nice colors, logos, and designs for your website and have the best looking site out there, but if you don’t have good quality content to match, then people won’t stay interested in your site. You might as well throw in the towel now. It is always best to have both – great quality web design and content.
The content you put on your site should match the design and look of your site, just like the design, look, and feel of the site should match the content. Because the design and content should complement each other it is very important to think about both design and content in the early stages of building a website.
Some ideas that might help you to mesh content and design are given here:
- Look at other sites. Check out other sites that have similar content you want to publish. You can look at the different things others have done and pick get ideas from them.
- First impressions. When you think of a particular subject, there are images, colors, and other things that pop into your head. What do your first think of when you think of the subjects you want to cover in your site? Those first impressions are important because if they are what you first thought of, others may have those expectations for your site. For example: when people think about music they hear music, see music notes and sheet paper. Those are the first impressions and some people may expect to see those things in your site.
- If you are pressed with time and have limited ideas, you may seek advice and service from a professional agency that provides web design and quality content development, they sure will help you in coming up with great design for your website as well as high quality and well written content.
