There are many of people who misunderstand web designing with web development. Yes, there is a difference between both terms. Designing and development are two completely different terms, and one cannot use these terms interchangeably. The main difference is between its appearance and its functionality. The appearance is what you can see and feel whereas functionality is what your experience after using it. In the similar manner, usability comes under development and content comes under designing.

Every company has different requirements for their website. If you are a designer, there are many things that you should keep in mind while designing a website. As a website designer, you must know that the appearance of a website matters a lot. Designing a website is not just about putting on a good theme. It is not enough. You should have an out of the box idea to stand out.
All of us start from basics. So let us start with the basics here as well. Understanding the basics and essential elements of web designing is important. Let us give you and overview about it:
#1 AppearanceThe appearance of the website is one of the major elements. It plays the most important role in your website. A user ignores poorly designed websites. The color, graphics, images, readability, and format of a website, matters a lot. It helps you to bring many users and potential clients. And if you are not paying attention to it, you are probably losing your potential customers.
#2 ContentContent has become the king of the digital world. If your content is poor, it will make your website user repulsive. High searched keywords should be preferred while preparing content for the website. A good SEO based content helps you to get more traffic on your website.
#3 Page optimization timePage optimization timing is the time a website takes to get loaded. A visitor doesn’t hesitate in leaving your site within a second, while it increases your bounce rate. Average loading time of a website should be less than 2 seconds.
#4 Spacing on the pageYou cannot keep a website all clumsy and messed up. Sequential spacing in the website makes it look elegant. In fact, it becomes easier for the user to recognize and identify things.
#5 Proper navigationWhen a user visits your website, he/she probably comes to the website decisively. Users browse a website to find a solution. If they cannot find one, they move on to the next option. So, proper navigation should be on your A-one priority list. Drop down menus, products, services, contact us, and shop options should be easily traceable. So, these were the basics of website designing. If you are struggling with getting your website designed, this one would help you. Was it helpful for you? If yes, let us know in the comments!

We believe what we hear, and we hardly try to know the reason. Well, it is the 21st century, and you don’t always have to run by the rules of the 19th century. You need to grow with the technology. Whether you are a designer or a developer, you should not blindly accept the claims made by other professionals. Make your observation and work on it. There are many designing myths people believe for no reason. According to the aspects of a website, designing plays a crucial role in keeping your business alive. The users will come back only if they find your website engaging. Doing your research before hiring a company for the work is important, but trusting whatever you read or head is wrong. There are thousands of websites, and every website has something different to say. Now, who and what would you trust? Well, it is hard to say ‘who you should trust?’, but we know ‘what you should trust?’. You should trust the facts, though there is a fine line between facts and myths. Let us know about some designing myths, and know the facts.
#1 Your homepage is the most important pageMost of the people say this thing, but it is an absolute myth! All the pages are as important as your home page. You can just not give it the first priority because it is the first-page user checks. Your contact page, about us page, and every other page is as important as the home page.
#2 Things must not be more than three clicks awayThe user can go as much as ten clicks away if your design and content are interesting. Yes, some important thing should be visible and easily accessible, but saying that everything should be just three clicks away is a myth. Keep it interesting, and the users will be more than happy to spend their time on your website.
#3 Mobile users are always in hurry and distractedThe truth is if your website’s optimisation time is less, the user would be more than happy to use it. But if the mobile user has to wait for 30-40 seconds until your website gets loaded then they will not wait. The mobile users are not in hurry, it is just that your website’s optimisation time is not as good as other websites.
#4 Users will tell you what they wantFeedback is important but not all the time. You can take feedback from 1000 users but applying all those 1000 changes can ruin your website. So, be careful with what you are changing as per the feedback of users.
#5 Simplicity can only be achieved by minimalismMinimalism is completely different from simplicity. A complicated design can be made simple. Simplicity does not mean minimising the number of things such as steps, UI elements or interactions. Don’t forget to add important things to achieve simplicity with minimalism. So, you should not trust things just because someone asked you to or some told you something. Always keep your observation game on point.
