Displaying Text on your Website

When designing a website, a lot more goes into displaying the content than you might think.  We do not simply copy and paste the text into the website.  If we did, it would look something like this:

We display the content to make it attractive, easier to read, and stand out.  As you can see above, it is difficult to find what you are looking for.  The image below shows the same content in a much better way.  The information is easy to find, is visually appealing, and the content is popping off the page.  It is worth any extra time to display content this way because it changes the whole look of your website and keeps readers on your page.

Website for Bangrak Thai Cuisine

A client we recently created a website for is Bangrak Thai Cuisine. The restaurant owner, Rose, was looking for a fresh new page and we worked with her to achieve that. We created a website that includes all of the essentials. The menu, happy hour, directions, operating hours, delivery, and contact information are all easy to find and are displayed nicely. The website features responsive design which allows readers to easily view the page from any device.

Below you can see how the same webpage appears on a monitor, tablet, and mobile phone.

Fonts and Colors on your Website

When we design websites, we like to keep them looking clean. We don’t want pages to be cluttered by several different font styles and colors. When a website has those elements, you often have a hard time focusing on the content which is the reason why you are there. So make sure you have a select font that is easy to read, it will make all the difference in the world.

Always Check the Links Within your Website

You are browsing a website and see a link to a page that looks really interesting to read. You click on it and you are directed to an error page. Nothing is more annoying, right? When maintaining your own website, we recommend that you keep a document on your computer where you can save all of the external links you have posted throughout your website. That way you can easily check them and update them as needed. It will keep your readers happy and save you from scrambling to fix them at a later point in time.

Importance of Converting Graphics to Vector Images

Tip: When you are sending out images, such as business logos, to be printed for marketing materials, make sure you have the graphic converted to a vector image. This will allow you to enlarge the image very big (think the side of a building) and still have it look very crisp. Using files such as JPEGs limit the quality when it comes to large prints. So be sure to always check your file type before sending your images out.
