Top Essentials For Good Web Design

I am now studying for my graded unit to finally get my HNC in June so its important for me to continue to learn and write ABOUT the concepts I have learned!
SO this is as much for you as it is for me :)

1. Colour is everything! - Understand colour what ity evokes in people, understand colour schemes; and if you dont know what youre doing, pick a colour scheme from http://webdesignledger.com/tools/10-super-useful-tools-for-choosing-the-right-color-palette  or http://colorschemedesigner.com/

2. Font! Choose the correct typeface for the work you are doing, consider the target audience, ie older generation use a larger typeface. Consider, weight, kerning and leading.

3. Layout! lay yout design out so the design follows a visual hierarchy with the most important thing drawing your eye first in a logical way.

4. Good web design is crap.

C. - contrast
R. - repetition
A. - allignment
P. - proximity

p.s. i got a new keyboard, I couldnt live with the one I had anymore and I feel like smashing it up. Don't know if it was my pc or because the keyboard was wireless. Hey Ho!
