Your landing page is one of the most important pages of your website. It will define the level of success that you have in converting visitors of your website into clients, customers, subscribers or even members. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t pay anywhere near as much attention as they should to the design of their landing page and instead, opt for a bog-standard, boring landing page that likely doesn’t convert at a very high rate.
Have you ever thought about how many fonts you really need and really use on a given project? Maybe 2 fonts will be enough or 100-200 fonts is not a limit for you? This subject is quite disputable in web design. It seems there is no definite facts-based answer, but today we’ll try to summarize pieces of information around the topic that some experienced designers have shared with us..
Many web designers often try to use parallax effect when it comes to create a one page website or a small business website, be it an online portfolio or a website of a real estate agency. Also, there is one more type of websites where the parallax effect is often used – those websites where some innovative products are advertised, including movies, cartoons and even books as it is quite easy to make partial retelling of the subject or even offer a little game with the parallax effect.
The use of the parallax effect on web pages adds an illusion of 3D space when scrolling the page, extra depth and dynamics making the website to look more vibrant, creative and fun for users. Thus, the parallax scrolling effects both horizontal and vertical (it can be easily achieved with simple CSS-techniques or jQuery plug-ins) are often used by skilful web designers who try to create exclusively unique web solutions. Portfolio websites, graphic design websites, web galleries and other web solutions with unlimited creativity suit best to the use of the parallax effect.
We offer you a fresh collection of websites with parallax effect. See how originally it can be used and feel free to draw ideas for your great web projects! If you have any creative examples which are not listed here, we’d like to know about them in your comments.
You may not notice but our daily life pours tons of inspirations at us, from time to time. I learn this from my own personal experience after carefully observing the daily patterns of mundane lifestyle(s), which reflect in my website designs.
To design for the user, I needed to step into their shoes, so I moved out of my bubble, into the wildly unknown terrains near my home. I didn’t just observe but I felt the occurrences right into my gut. Perhaps, a feeling like this prompts you get down to designing and sharing. Here, I pour out my heart-felt experience for you:
Observation #1 – A Space To Reckon With
I am strolling and I come across a vast piece of land. Covered with nothing, as clear as the blue sky. From far it appears flat, on close observation I find a chain of mountains of almost every size. Owing to the placement of mountains in an undisturbed terrain they appear robust, wide and grand.
If you are the very beginner in websites design, this post will help you make first successful steps towards clients. There is no magic – just simple actions to follow (don’t tell me you can’t or you’re too busy).
