ELEMENTS NEEDED FOR A GOOD WEB SITE.
CONTRAST - The TEXT needs to be readable. For
example, you do not put black text on a dark blue background.
REPETITION - It is important that when a visitor to your web site moves from web page to web page within a web site, they know that they are still viewing
the same web site. This done can be done by using the same graphics, same color scheme and same navigation on each and every web page within the web site.
ALIGNMENT - This means that items on the page are lined up with each
other. Lack of alignment is one of the most prevalent problems on many web sites.
PROXIMITY - This refers to the relationships that items in a web page
develop when they are close to each other. For example, if you have a picture on a web page - Make sure that the text describing that picture is NEAR the picture.
NAVIGATION - This refers to how you “move through” the web site. You
should ALWAYS be able to GET BACK to the home page of the web site from ANY page in the site with one click. If you cannot find what you are
looking for within a web site with no more then 3-4 clicks, then the navigation is wrong.
to see an examples of a web sites Abacus Solutions did a MAKE OVER for. We used many of the same words and graphics from the ORIGINAL website, then we applied the principals explained above to the
MAKE OVER web site.
