Art Unlimited: Web Design And Digital Art

Web design is often overlooked as something technical and limited to the virtual world of HTML codes and Java Scripts but not art. The subtle restriction definition of art: that it is only on sketching, painting, carving and sculpting. Like these art forms, Web Design starts from a blank paper, canvas, stone and clay. The wide array of colors are added after an idea sprouts, then another idea, then the experimenting of these colors to create something surreal yet virtual, untouchable but felt–until it blends everything perfectly to create what web developers wants the best: personality.

Along came a Spider

According to Kyle Feidler, a web developer who also does workshop about web designs, said that, “Design is the entire experience from the moment users enter your site to well after they’ve left.” Like meeting someone new and they leave an impression and that sticks around for long. You enter a virtual portal that led you to a ride through what trucking in Cambridge is like, transporting goods on time. Even what a cup of latte in Madrid looks like, skiing in Alaska. Then the ride is over, but you want to try again, this time for real. That’s the magic spell of effective web design, it compels you to actually live the experience.

Not A Nobody

The most famous web designers have a well-built portfolio. Not all people know them but take John Foster for example, according to Tom May in his article entitled, “8 Inspiring Digital Art Portfolios and Why They Work”, John Foster is a science fiction and fantasy artist who has a website where he posted his works: covers, fan arts, book jackets and et cetera, making him more attractive to clients who wants to pay him for that Digital Art service. There is money in art.

Connecting Almost Everything

What is the relationship between Web Design and Digital Art? Web Design is part of Digital Art, dear reader. Let me ask you, can aesthetic photographs in Instagram be a Digital Art?  The answer is yes. Popular web designer Mike Kus has an Instagram account with over 837,000 followers, as reported also by Tom May in the website Creative Bloq. Mike Kus has captured his followers by giving them vitamins to their eyes:  picturesque photographs. Web Designers speaks volumes even when their subject is a man trucking in Cambridge, or a cup of coffee on a table in Madrid and confetti coming down during a wedding in Maldives. Digital art and its message, immortalized now and forever

Useful Tips When Designing A Small Business Website

Does a retailer selling kitchen tiles need a website? Word of mouth and social media allow a business to reach its target audience but a website generates online presence. The fact is 48% of consumers will not consider a business that has no website. However, how should a small business website look?

One of the most important components of a small business website is a well-organized navigation bar. At least 89% of users prefer user-friendly navigation bar that appears consistently on all the pages aside from the homepage or landing page. A sticky navigation bar always stays on top while the visitor scrolls the web page.

The navigation bar is used by visitors to reach all the important pages of the website. If the website has many pages, an option is a drop-down menu to properly organize the pages. The logo is typically placed on the top left corner. When the logo in the navigation bar is clicked, it should take the user to the homepage.

Since mobile devices are credited for at least 50% of website traffic, navigation must work perfectly in the smaller screens of mobile devices. A good practice is to put all of the navigation bar links in a hamburger menu when a user is viewing the website through a mobile device.

The website of kitchen tiles retailer usually looks different from the website of a restaurant. The website of a small business must be designed based on the target audience with focus on user experience and not over-the-top visuals. Visitors are often distracted by heavy design elements that could also slow down the site.

When selling a product online, responsive web design is mandatory. If the site does not render properly on mobile, the user will leave the site. A non-responsive web design has poor engagement, low conversion rates and low page ranking in search engine results.

If you want the kitchen design to come to life, use kitchen tiles in the right colour and size. There are decorative feature tiles that can make a kitchen truly unique. Large tiles can make the kitchen appear larger but make sure that the tiles are made from hard material to withstand foot traffic.
