design principles

When you start thinking about designing your web site, you need to think about how the colors you choose will affect visitor's perception of the site and how design layout can help "pull the design together".

Good design is virtually invisible, bad design often screams out loud. If your web site is well designed and the layout of information helps the usability of the web site, visitors will return. If you don't think about how the design and color scheme can affect the user experience, visitors may never come back after finding your site un-usable. An important issue to consider in choosing a color scheme is to remember to design for those with color blindness, this usually helps make your site usable for everyone else too!
