Design Tricks to Create Depth
Every budding designer at least once at the beginning of his career ponders on the question ‘why his/her works lack sheen and subtlety of the seasoned designers’. The haunting question leaves if one keeps on delving into the designing field to eventually come across tricks that add depth to a design. It, of course, takes time to take such leap in the designing field. However, the process of learning could be speeded with the right knowledge. So, here is the same knowledge about creating depth right in front of you;
Distinguishing with Ribbons and Wraps
It is literally not possible for a person to be interested in web designing and still not coming across usage of ribbons and wraps. Ribbons are everywhere ranging from blogs to business websites and website design companies love them too but to make the right impact, their appropriate usage is very crucial. Wraps and ribbons give visual appeal to the website, and are popular attention-catchers. They usually come handy with headlines, blog dates, featured elements and other important items that need to stand apart. However, one needs to be cautious in their usage because too many ribbons only add to the girlish quotient.
Experiment with Grid
The option of experiment always pays off if it is not just a whiff but a thought out idea. Grid offers a great scope for experimenting. Overlapping is quite popular amongst best website designers to give the platform a different look. Overlapping can be experimented with content, images, header, footer and many other elements. Overlapping relieves the website from a boring flat layout and gives it a lively feel. Browse a little and see how many such grid arrangements you come across.
Designers usually limit the usage of shadows to creating subtle effect, fearing too much would only look absurd. However, shadows if used smartly could make a website look tempting. Floating elements and warped pages are widely used with shadows to enhance the overall look of the website. It could also be used to create 3D effects if used in a proper way. Shadows could also be used more subtly to highlight a single element or to accentuate another. The idea is to experiment and see what fits in.
If you have seen the work of a seasoned website designer, then you will understand what is being talked about. Deft web professionals make use of such realistic interfaces that it seems really clickable to the viewer. This could be accomplished by making use of gradients and shadows. Novice designers usually fail to get the right balance and end up over exploiting such a precious resource. The purpose of using 3D interfaces is not achieved till the viewer doesn’t, at least for a second, really get the idea that the button or whatever you have used is really floating!
