Web design – The most important factors

Usability and structure

One of the most important factors in website construction is the usability of a page.
The important things in terms of usability are:


As a web designer should develop browser-independent and an independent operating system. That is, a website needs to be usable with any browser in any common operating system. This includes but not that the layout / design is perfect when viewing. It can be a little distorted (actually only applies to Netscpae4.x).


Informally by all webmasters, 800 x 600 pixels is regarded as the standard.

Font readability

People will read long texts, but generally, butsuch texts do not appeal to most people, unless they specifically search certain information. Nevertheless, the document should be understood to be read in each case. Most traditional and best is black on white. The yellow text, for example, almost did not recognize here. Blue text can be read on Red actually not. Black / dark text colours can be read on light pastel colours well. Also very very bright letters on a dark background can be read relatively well.

Loading times

If there is one thing, which makes consumers happy, there are, certainly, the good load times. Modem and ISDN users are short when loading they simply save money. Fast loading times can be achieved by a good image compression and a clever design with tables, frames or CSS, which takes as little code to complete. In addition, data-heavy elements (e.g., Java applets, Flash animations, huge passages, large background images, etc.) can be determined. Optimize the amount of data or if it possible, remove it completely.


Animations mean in large amounts of data and therefore have bad effects on the charging time. A visitor feeling rather annoyed from blinking or moving things rather than interested in them. Animations really should be used to produce a certain effect, to arouse interest as an important part of the website. If you ever noticed, the basic structure of web pages while you surf mostly remains the same and often changes only slightly on the content.
