If you have contracted a web designer, or web design company, to build a website for yourself or your business, there will come a point in the process (or possibly several points) when they ask you for feedback. This can be a daunting task if you’re not used to evaluating websites! But you don’t have to be a pro to give relevant, constructive feedback. Use the following tips to help you out!
- Start with colour
The first thing a person (i.e. prospective customer) is going to notice when your webpage first loads are the colours, which will immediately evoke specific emotions – this means that your colour palette is so important! What is your initial gut reaction when seeing the mixture of colours the web designer has used for your site? Do they make you feel happy? Confused? Are they professional or fun? Do they convey what you’re hoping to achieve, and do they match your brand? Is there too much, or to little? Your instincts will help you out here – don’t ignore them.
