Home page design
The purpose of the main page — to interest the user so that he wanted to see the site further. The basis of the site are the basement and the cap, they must be decorated in the same style with the rest of the site, the difference will be only in the content. In the basement and the header of the site you can place the latest news, links to new products or articles, links to pages with promotions and similar things.
If you look at the usual average site, the design of its main page will always be both cons and pros (now we will not be talking about the cap and the basement, and the Central part).
Most often, right under the cap is a wide flash movie with beautiful animation. The perfect solution that will definitely attract the attention of the user. In fact, you can be 100% sure that the user will see and understand the idea that you have reflected in the flash video, as long as it is informative.
On the main page it is best to place only one animation, do not shove them here and there, it distracts the user’s attention and he can not focus on the most important. Besides, the constant flashing anywhere just annoying.
Then just below the video with animation publish company offers, lists of services, links to news. It is also logical and correct.
Most of all, the most important mistake on the main page is the mutual arrangement of all blocks. They may be good on their own, but together they create chaos. The error may consist in a mismatch of colors of pictures of text links. Most often, the main page is full of all the colors of the rainbow, and this is not very good. But even more egregious, when in the right or left half of the site (the part where are placed most of the links) – mixed banners and text links. Do not forget about the relevance of the information on the banners should be placed information that is more important, because it is on the banners the user will pay more attention. But ensure that the overall style of the main page are maintained, it is not necessary to close up the graphics just because you can draw (even worse if it’s not a frown). If you need to highlight something — highlight the color or font size, do not mix pictures and text that do not match with each other.
