The transition was not easy though. Here are some ideas on how to make the transition from graphic design to web design.
Learn Standard Web Practices & Layouts
You may look top-left or top-center for the company’s logo.
Site navigation is usually top-right or top-center.
A site footer is normally the last element on a page.
These practices have become expected of visitors. It’s important to study and know these layout expectations. More importantly, it’s important to know the reason why the logo and navigation are usually in certain spots.
Often a request from a new client is a site needs to be “easy to navigate or use”. Understanding web layout will help you achieve this goal for your clients.
Bend the Rules
Knowing graphic design, you’ll be able to implement fresh designs into your projects, while serving your client’s goals.
Stay Focused on Typography
The ability to identify & use great typography is a well-sought after skillset in a web designer.
Understand Your Work can Evolve
A website, however, can evolve over time. You can make improvements. With Divi, you can even show different versions of your web design elements and see what elements perform better with site visitors. It’s a flexible, living project.
This understanding should open up your creative thinking and relieve stress.
