You only have one opportunity to make a good first impression with your website. It can be easy for your site to blend in and get lost. Clean and bold designs pull in more attention and help users to easily navigate your site.
It’s important to carry on the consistency throughout the whole site, as you never know where and what page a user might land on. You have to pay considerable attention to your homepage, but don’t forget to pay attention to other areas of your site.
Presenting the user with information in an organised, clean manner is one of the most popular design trends within web design at the moment. You don’t want to risk overwhelming your visitors, it’ll scare them off. We've all been on a site which was trying to do too much and it probably resulted in you bouncing off.
Clean design also helps the right elements stand out and minimises distractions. Having the right CTA placement, an attractive colour scheme, good usage of white space, strong typography, readability and a good information hierarchy are just some of the elements to consider.
Consider whether a one-page website is appropriate for what you're trying to achieve.
