WordPress Web Design Improvement Tips

September 30, 2021    Reading Time: 2 Minutes

WordPress website design involves a lot of different factors. Whether you’re an experienced designer or someone who’s just getting started, here are some tips to keep in mind as you work on your next WordPress website.

1) Use Google Fonts. If you’re not familiar with Google Fonts , they’re a collection of pretty awesome fonts that Google has made available to the web design community for free. Because I’m a fan of Comic Sans, you probably won’t find it here, but they have a wide variety of other font types and styles to choose from.

2) Make sure your website is responsive. With mobile browsing being so popular these days, it’s important to have a responsive website design so that your site is easy to view on a mobile device.

3) Don’t use too many plugins. Plugins, while awesome and super useful, can overload the functionality of your WordPress website if you’re not careful. Keeping plugins at a minimum should be one of the goals when designing a WordPress website.

4) Design for humans. Even though you’re designing for a screen, rather than printing out the finished product like you’d do with graphic design, it’s important to remember that humans will actually be using this website. When they look at your site, will they have an easy time reading it? Will they have an easy time navigating your site?

5) Don’t be afraid to ask for help. There’s a lot involved with creating a WordPress website, and it can be very overwhelming if you’re not used to doing it. The good news is that there are plenty of people out there who have been designing these types of websites for years and would love to help.

This blog post will hopefully be useful to you if you’re planning on creating a WordPress website or if you already have one and are looking to improve it. Thanks for reading!

What can I say, working with Graticle and Shawn was an absolute pleasure. Shawn is very detail oriented, over communicates and presents all the information you need to know in a very easy to understand and view format. The way he operates is first class. We got better service and a better final product than we could have expected. Thank you Shawn!

I’m not sure what I would do without Graticle! This is my 2nd time working with Shawn and this time around he helped us create a new more efficient and visually pleasing website. Our website was part of his new Pre-Built Package, which I recommend for any small business, with a small budget but still in need of a professional looking website. We absolutely loved how our website turned out: the design, color, images, details, everything! Shawn made the whole design process very easy with his video explanations, and his design suggestions for our website have made all the difference. Best part was Shawn added a “Contact Us” feature on every page which we have already seen great results with, and we’ve only been live for a week or so. In the midst, of designing our website I also had Shawn create e-mail signatures for our team and as well as fix up our Facebook Cover/Profile Images, all this has helped us create a more professional and streamlined image across the web. Thanks again, Shawn!
