Using Color in Graphic Web Design

Welcome to another great tip from your favorite website designer in Las Vegas

Color is one of the most crucial aspects of a good site design. Palettes with too little contrast can be hard for visitors to read and can cause eye fatigue. It is superior to use high contrast color palettes with either dark text on a light background or light text on a dark background.

Text should invariably be given a solid colour background. If it is necessary to use tiled images in a background, nest text within a solid block of colour to make it less complicated for readers to target. Nothing will send visitors scratching for the back button on their browser like poor use of text and background colours in a web design.

Do you believe it would be less expensive to build your website on your own or have a professional web designer do it? When you calculate what your time is worth (how much do you expect to make if you were working on bringing in more customers instead of dealing with a website) and the time it will take you to, not only build, but maintain your website, professionals are usually quite a bargain. It may cost you some cash up front, but a website done right can make a big difference in your potential client’s eyes.

If you are considering doing it yourself, do yourself a favor and learn how to set up and build you website in WordPress. It will end up with a lot more features, better looking than a beginner could build and much easier for you to update down the road. Here is another video to help setting up your WordPress site:
