Responsive web designs have become more popular with users therefore many web designers have recently been creating many responsive designs. However, some designers can easily make some common mistakes that can put the website at risk. So it’s important that web designers are aware of the common mistakes.
Web designers would need to constantly check the speed of the website and make sure that their process doesn’t affect this factor. Otherwise, visitors are more likely to switch to a different website that loads faster. This can affect sales and traffic in the long run too.
Balance negative space
Depending on the device that users are using to view the website, it’s important there is a balance in the negative space to make the website look aesthetically appealing to the visitors. Try not to put too many information or icons on the website as this could affect your blank spaces.
Amount of contents
If your website has too many contents, this will not be ideal to view on a mobile device as users will have to scroll down the page endlessly. Too much text and images can also slow down your website, so it’s important to avoid this mistake and only add the relevant contents on your website. We recommend adding your important information on the top page so that it’s easily accessible and readable for users.
To make an efficient, responsive design, you will need to make your navigation as simple as possible. Responsive designs will have less space when being viewed on mobile or tablet device. You can adopt some techniques that can minimise or hide your navigations when viewing viewed on smaller devices.
All in all, creating a responsive web design can be a challenge. The main thing to keep in mind is to remember that the website will be viewed on a smaller screen.
