You don’t need to be a designer or developer to work with WordPress, that’s why this is one of the most common tools to create websites if you don’t have experience doing it. The path on creating pages and sections on these pages can be thought on a step by step process, but the design process is a little more complicated than following a set of rules.
Once you had an idea of how to create sections using the Add Blocks WordPress feature, the next important step is to be creative on how you will spread your content on the page, will you use photos? What will be the names of the titles? Are you sure this will gets your readers’ attention?
To create a consistent website is important to pay attention to some basic design elements. If the page’s author has a logo, the colors used on the site can follow the same colors of the logo or the author can use ISU’s website colors. Uses no more than three different colors helps to keep the website consistent.
If the author selects a color for one title (heading), all the other titles on the site have to have the same color. Long texts are better to read if they are in colors with more contrast with the background color (if the background color is white, the better color for the text is black).
Usually, sections on the homepage will follow the same rules, titles (headings), small texts, images – visual information helps visitors to obtain a quick understanding of the message the author wants to promote – and buttons. Interior pages can contain more specific information, so it’s common for the author to use more elements to display the information more efficiently. These elements can be the use of images, lists, call out texts (quote texts), tables and more. You can check different examples of interior pages by checking this page and this page.
