Custom Web Design Tips For Starters

Design Criterion

Choose a template according to the type of website you are planning to design. There are different design templates available for different necessities. Decide on a design whether you need an online portfolio, a business website or a blog.

Learn HTML and CSS

HTML is short for "Hypertext Markup Language". It is considered as the main constituent for creating a web page. The HTML language is made up of "tags" which characterizes different fundamentals on the page.


CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. These are sheets of attributes that disperse various styles to your website.

One style sheet can decide the look of your website giving it a organized look.For example, you can choose the font style, font size, hyperlink colors, background color, table design, etc. for your whole site all with one file.

Use sites like Dreamweaver or W3Schools to help you learn more about CSS for applying to your site.

Also try Dreamweaver for learning the basics of creating a page, you can use it for basic HTML commands.

Content Management Systems, Templates or coded from start

Many content management systems like WordPress offer free or paid themes to fit in your content. These themes can be installed without any coding know-how and they have hundreds of plug-ins which enable you to customize it infinitely. These professional looking paid themes are money worth spent and also have a support system. Templates either purchased or downloaded require coding knowledge or the knowledge of creating them from scratch. To save time and money one may consider WordPress themes otherwise if you are not very sure about your technical knowhow you always have the option of consulting designers.

Niche audience

Design your site as per your target audience. For instance designing a site for creative people will require much effort from your end as they have higher expectations with regard to design. On the other hand simple and spontaneous sites would be appreciated by an audience not so well versed with internet and web design.

Select content

Decide on an engrossing content for your website. Choose on how much should be written, what should be displayed and how many pages should be included. A smart content can work wonders for your site.

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engines play a vital role in bringing traffic to your website. Sites are lifeless without SEO's, so don't skip them.

Contact option

Add a contact us option to become accessible to your customers. Integrating with social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter is also the current trend.

Graphic Design
