PURPOSE OF WEB DESIGNING:

The websites launched by the competitor companies can be studied to get a fair idea and to make the web design more friendly and attractive.
MAKE IT SIMPLE:
The web designs should not be too flashy that it appears clumsy and difficult to navigate. The web content on the web pages of a site should not depict only the creative pursuits of the designers. The web design should also incorporate the technologies and present it in a very user friendly way. The visitors come to the websites for relevant information. Thus the web design should go hand in hand with the page content and one should not surpass the other. Rather a proper balance should be struck while web designing.
CONSISTENCY IN WEB DESIGN:
Maintaining a consistency through out the web pages of a site is very important while web designing. This gives a systematic and uniform approach towards designing a web page. Even choice of color and pattern are to be well thought out for maintaining uniformity of the web design.
TIME FOR LOADING A WEB PAGE:
While designing a website, it should be kept in mind that the web pages do not take much time to load. Otherwise, if the web pages take more time than usual, then users will tend to visit other sites. Thus the web design while being attractive must also be kept simple. Unnecessary video, images and audio files should be added. The web design of the website should not be so that it overloads the web pages. It is better not to keep the visitors waiting for only to open the pages of a site.
WEB DESIGN AIDING EASY NAVIGATION:
A web design must be so made that the browsers can easily go form one page to another with ease. The links and hyperlinks on the website should be so placed that the users can easily look up for their desired pages or information. Thus unnecessary use of links on the web pages can confuse the visitors and may even drive them instead of retaining the new visitors on the site.
