Welcome to Mark Lovett Web Design of Bethesda, MD’s Web Design Tips


1. Create Negative Space

Negative space is, quite simply, the space that surrounds an object in a image. Just as important as that object itself, negative space helps to define the boundaries of positive space and brings balance to a composition.

In this example, Fiat, encourages drivers not to send text messages while driving, by this clever use of negative space. The stark contrast between black and white creates beautiful silhouettes of the girl, dog and bus hidden within the type. An innovative idea that really drives home the dangers of texting while driving.

Clutter distracts viewers. Leaving space between elements (what I refer to as negative space) helps a reader focus on what’s important, and provides a more relaxing and pleasurable user experience.

Minimize clutter in your designs, include more space around elements, focus your user’s attention, and guide them through your site.

2. Choose Your Color Palette Wisely

Use a color palette picker such as Coolors to help you choose site colors. It’s very important to use a limited palette of colors that work well together. You can pick up starting colors from your images and get the perfect combination automatically, as well as customize your colors precisely by adjusting temperature, hue, saturation, brightness and more.


3. Think Mobile First Responsive Design

Historically, web designers have first approached the desktop side of any project, leaving the mobile part as a secondary goal. Even with the rise of responsive design, many still begin with the “full size” site and work our way down.

A growing trend in the industry is to begin with mobile design and then work up to a larger desktop version. With over 1.2 billion mobile web users worldwide this trend is here to stay.

More than ever before the web is something that we carry in our pockets, not something that just hangs out on our desk or in our homes. This is a global trend that will only continue to see growth in the coming years.

Big companies like Google are taking this approach as well, so embrace it! Focus on your mobile site view.
