The Design Glossary, Part One

mdpm-website-designLately, we’ve focused a lot on web copy and blogging. Today, we’re going to take a look at another vital aspect of your marketing strategy: website design. There are a lot of factors that can improve search engine optimization (SEO) and user experience, such as accurate NAP (name, address, phone number) or original copy. However, a sleek, clean design that is easy to navigate is essential for keeping users on your site. With that in mind, let’s look at four popular designs in our glossary.

Popular Design Options

  • Minimalist: A less is more approach, the minimalist UI (user interface) loads faster and doesn’t contain anything superfluous. Just a sleek, minimal approach to design.
  • Flat: A flat design UI is very popular and an option we often use when designing our client’s websites. A flat UI involves lots of open space and a clean, modern look. The focus is on the user experience, and ensuring that the site is easy to navigate.
  • Illustrative: We may provide an illustrative design for a dentist who offers pediatric care. The website design incorporates drawings and illustrations, and presents a bright, fun, and more engaging appearance.
  • Typographic: As the name suggests, words take center stage. We use large, bold letters to take up screen space, offering a very striking appearance.
