Visual is the crucial element of your website as it relates to the purpose of your website. However, it is important to keep visual, text and whitespace in balance. This helps to keep the readers focused and not feel too overwhelmed by everything going on, which will keep them on your site longer.
One of the web blogs that I frequently visit is Wattpad. The web has many eye-catching graphics to draw readers’ attention with the colour theme of orange.
The content is centred to focus readers’ eyes on the main content, avoiding confusion to happen. Small categories in the menu bar follow visual hierarchy so it is easier for readers to navigate information.
Considering visual elements, I have been planning for a new background and layout for my web page. The new theme would bring a fresher vibe to the web, which I think might attract more young audience. However, I will leave the update for later after I have received the second peer review and collect proper insight into my readers’ statistics.
