Today we will talk with you about what no introductory lesson in web design can do without from scratch the main criteria for good design: color, shape and typography and, of course, about the concept of web design. The use of the best website design comes easy now.
What is web design?
The creation of any web resource begins with the design of its interface, which should not only be convenient and understandable for the user but also meet the goals and objectives that the site faces. Despite the fact that the decoration of the interface fades into the background, its competent use will enhance the site’s convenience, make it memorable and original. If you do not have an artistic taste from birth, do not worry. The main thing is to know the basics of web design, and the taste will appear with experience.
By default, the color of the monitor is black. The primary colors are red, blue, and green are added to black and form all other colors. If you add up three primary colors, you get white. This color model is called RGB. Some web design lessons start from scratch with a description of the color wheel, which is the main assistant to any web designer.
Color Circle Principles
Pairs of flowers located opposite each other are contrasting. For example, blue with yellow, magenta with green, cyan with red. Contrasting colors are mutually exclusive. That is, if you increase the level of blue, it will automatically reduce the level of red and vice versa. A specific color is obtained by mixing adjacent colors. For example, to get yellow, you need to mix green and red.
Any color can be contrasted not with one color, but with a contrasting pair. So, to increase the value of red, you can lower the level of blue or at the same time lower the values of blue and green. A small life hack: to quickly select a contrasting color, you can invert the color of any raster element using the command Ctrl + I.
When choosing a color palette for a site, do not forget to use the safe color table to make sure that the browser will render this or that color in the right way. If the browser cannot recognize any color, it can mix several nearby ones, which will distort the color scheme of the site.
All objects without exception have a form. We can create an object without color or texture, but information about the form cannot be omitted. The most commonly used simple shapes in web design are line, rectangle, triangle and circle. A line can perform two functions: connecting and separating other objects. Connection example:
Separation example: Rectangle.
It is important to choose the proportions. Surely you have heard about the golden section dividing a segment into parts so that the ratio of the smaller part to the larger is the same as the ratio of the larger to the entire length of the segment. So, the principle of the golden section is observed not only in the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci but also in all areas of science and art, including web design. It is believed that the golden ratio creates harmony.
