In the excitement and rush to launch your new website it can be all too easy to overlook some very important things. Drawing on our extensive web design and development experience, we’ve compiled a simple at-a-glace checklist to help you optimise your website before you go live.
The design and build stage
Text font and size – ensure all text is clear and easy to read with good line spacings. Large text and plenty of white space works well on the web.
Contrast – today’s screens show up subtle differences in colour, so make sure your design and text complement each other and enable maximum clarity.
Consistency – this is vital across your entire site so that users don’t get confused or fed up. Consistency also makes you look professional. Buttons and links should be obvious, while headlines and sub-headlines should be consistent in style, size and colour.
Coming Soon – it’s a good idea to include a ‘Coming Soon’ page to encourage users to bookmark your site. But make sure it’s just as impactful and well designed as the rest of your site.
