Website design - any tips on using graphics effectively?
« on: January 04, 2012, 03:14:23 PM »

I'm building a website for my business and I've been adding graphics today.  However I feel a bit like I'm just using them to fill in the gaps, and I'm worried I might be overdoing it.

Any design tips on how and when to use graphics on a website?

All elements of a landing/sales page (a business site should never use the home page also as a sales page) must support your Unique Value Proposition.  That applies to images as well. If you're images are not clearly expressing your UVP (your offer), or taking up too much room Vs your sales copy, then you have a problem.  Your UVP must answer the 2 questions in every visitor's mind:1.  "Why should I buy your product or service"2.  "Why should I buy it from you and not from your competitors?"You must also be concerned with your visitor's eye path.  Your sales page layout must lead them smoothly through your sales process.

Keep things simple, the largest part of design is not what to add but what not to add, knowing when to stop with detail and putting the form before the function.  When most people think they're adding images to make the page more interesting they're invariably making it look more amateurish, cluttered and detracting from the most important thing on the page - the text.
