    Usability and Navigation: How to Make it Work - Bright colors are...


    (Page 5 of 9 )

    Bright colors are great, and it's very good if your project is bright. However, bright colors are never either dark or light enough to make it to a good background. So, if you want a lot of color on your website, make sure that it's either a background for a light color field with dark text, or just use those bright colors as elements in design of your project. Don't forget that eyes get tired easier if there are a lot of bright colors around the text, so if your project has lots of texts, try to limit bright spots by using them in small design elements.

    Navigation

    Navigation is very important, because that's mostly navigation which defines how convenient it is to use your website, because using is not limited by reading, it's also finding important information and operating the whole website. According to statistics up to 95% website dissatisfied visitors were dissatisfied by an inadequate navigation.

    Whenever you decide to put your menu - horizontally or vertically, - the most important thing, in fact, is to keep your menu in the same spot on every page of your site, and keep its look the same. Your visitors have to know where they have come from, where they are, and how they may get back. Your logo or a name of your company, or a web project has to link to he main page from every document of the website except the main page itself. All links leading to the document you are currently at have to be disabled on this document, it means that if you are currently in Website design section, you won't be able to click on the menu item that leads to Website design section.
