These days, just about anyone can build their own website. This was been a huge blessing for bloggers, meaning that you can create a website with very little, or even no financial investment, a critical part of setting up your business. However, if you want your website to be effective, it needs to be well designed. This means that you need to have at least a basic understanding of web design. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to spend years or even months studying website design: simply understanding the some of the key principles will take you a long way.

Here are 7 website design tips that will help you build a professional, effective, and engaging blog.

1. Limit the Number of Colors Your Use

For the strongest, most impactful website design, a limited number of colors is best: usually two or three colors are ideal. This design principle applies equally when designing other graphics, whether social media content, bullet journals, or Sticker It stickers. When designing an of these materials, it is generally a good idea to stick to two or three colors only.

The two or three colors you use should also be your brand’s colors, the colors that you use across all your marketing materials and general communications. If you don’t have brand colors, know is a good time to pick some that reflect the values that you want to convey on your blog.

2. Be Conscious of Font

Another important consideration in web design is the fonts you use. As with colors, you should only use two to three different fonts, maximum, on your site. This could be one font for your logo, another for your headlines, and a third font for text body content. If you try to add additional fonts into the mix this looks messy and unprofessional.

Pick fonts that best reflect your brand’s style, such as more traditional fonts if you want to convey conservative values, or more modern fonts if you have a more radical, dynamic brand. Another useful tip is to stick to the sans serif family of fonts — these are fonts like Arial and Tahoma. These clean, simple fonts have the best readability on a computer screen.
