10 Excellent Design Tips for Startups

1. Simple and User-friendly

The best way to create a great website that drives traffic is to keep it simple. Using easy navigation, clickable logos and search buttons help the visitors check websites with ease as they are familiar with these options. Unnecessary clustering with loads of graphics and options is not a great idea  A clear and crisp look is necessary to create a popular website.

2. Make it Fun

One of the best ways to stay on someone’s mind is through humor. People often forget what it is said and done, but they’ll remember the feel. So add some fun elements to websites to attract customers.

6. Distinct Fonts

While designing a startup website, keep in mind that typography is very important. It’s one of the main features to communicate with customers. Avoid using too many fonts as this may confuse the visitors but at the same time use two distinct fonts which will separate the headings and the content.

7. Understandable Call to Action

CTA or Call To Action is the obvious way of making customers hooked on a site. It’s better to use simple language which is easy to understand than use cool “slangs” which may confuse visitors.

8. Mobile App

Life is hectic and everyone is on the go. Most people access the internet via mobile phones. It’s better to create a good mobile version of a website in order to make it more popular. Make sure to include all the best features of the desktop version in the mobile app too.
