    Common web design mistakes


    Hello All,
    Designing a website is indeed the challenging task. Small mistakes can ruin your efforts and time if you don’t care about it. Web design mistakes are not just including its look but other things which should be considered. Here are some of the prime focuses you need to pay enough attention on.
    1. Lack Of Detail
    2. Distracting Background
    3. No Color Balance
    4. Using Emboss and Bevel Techniques
    5. To Much Design
    6. Design Is Mismatching
    7. Using Uncle Bob's Time Design
    8. Design Should Be Subjective
    9. More White Spaces in Content
    10. Design Decision Makers Are Busy

    Yes, these points are absolutely true because still many web designers are doing these type of mistakes in their web design specially novice designers.

    Including all above points, want to add one more point which is “Excessive use of multimedia in web design” because use of multimedia in website would take the web design upto next level but its excessive use increases page loading time which is one of the negative point for user experience.

    As well as if it is not implemented properly then user will have to face difficulty to access content of the website and leave the site immediately which will turn into loss of traffic.

    I want add one more point "Website navigation" it is one of the important elements of website design. Sometimes web designer develop complicated website navigation, so users can't find what they are looking for and they left your website.

    I should say that design mistakes kill not only websites, but also mobile applications.
    Well, I've got something to add to your list:
    Unintuitive Design
    Excess Of Information
    Designing For Yourself, Not For Users
    Heavy Content

    Some more mistakes, which are peculiar mostly for apps are here http://mobidev.biz/blog/design_mista...lications.html

    I think one of the most annoying things trending these days is requiring a user to have a facebook account to do something on your site such as comment.

    Hi All,

    I am totally agree with above written comments regarding the common mistakes done by most of the web designers. I would like to thank all for sharing their informative points on such topic. Here, i would also add some of points:

    1. Make sure that website is cross-browser compatible.

    Hi
    About 10 years ago a web-designers training course said that people stay for only 3 seconds before moving on to our sites. They might make 1 click within that time.

    All these years later i think we can see that people are even less likely to stick around and probably stay for a far shorter time. So, if you haven't got your message across within under 3 seconds or attracted them to stay longer then your site might well be pointless.

    So, keep your home-page as simple and light-weight as possible because people are not going to wait around for that heavy video, audio-clip or image to download. If they have to wait for it to download before they can click around and explore they will leave quickly and never appreciate the glorious art you spent so long crafting.

    Most multimedia is better on sub-pages so that people have chosen to wait and are expecting to have to wait for it. Of course you do need some on your home page to stop it being dull but make sure it's light-weight enough to down-load fast even on crappy wiifi
    Regards from
    Tom
