When it comes to web design, it’s all about making an impact for the right reasons.

When you’re thinking about creating a new website or refreshing your current one, a good web designer will take your objectives, ideas, existing branding and preferences and come up with a design that will match your needs.

If you’re looking for inspiration here are some ideas that can be adopted to create a striking website.

Full Screen Image

Most websites these days have these. The first thing you see when you visit a website will most likely be a big, bold image which is either static or scrolling through a series of images.

This modern style is great for making a statement and images can be overlaid with text to display a key message or call to action.



Custom icons are a great way to illustrate key areas for the business. They are a very visual way of communicating what you do and capturing visitors’ attention.

We are all used to seeing symbols in everyday life so icons are a great method for gaining recognition. These insolvency practitioners based in Newcastle made their service accessible and approachable with the use of icons.



Embedding video in your website is another method which if used in the right way can be very effective.
Statistics show that people are spending less and less time on websites, so the amount of time you have to capture their attention is very short. Video allows you to get your message across quickly and succinctly.


Contact Form

A great way of making it really easy for visitors to get in touch is having a contact form at the bottom of the homepage. A lot of people will be viewing your website on a mobile or tablet and will scroll right to the bottom of the homepage, so having a simple contact form at the bottom is a great call to action and way of capturing their data.
