The visual appeal of a website is as important as the content of the same website. The ability of users to visit and retrieve information from a website will depend on the features that improve the usability of the website and the user’s computer skills. The visual appeal is one area that the websites’ usability is improved. The usability of the website can also be improved through the use of templates that are derived from common design of websites that apply standardized design elements. The visual component of website can be effectively used by the author of a website to attract the attention of the users and improve the visits to different pages within a website (Niederst, 2007). In this paper, the design of the visual aspects of a website is examined. It gives the actual implementation of a websites structure and layout with much emphasis on the visual appeal ease accessing information from the website.
Developing the website
To include several components in a design does not necessarily imply that the number of visitors to the site will increase ( Aziz & Noorizzuddin, 2013). The content of the website and the usability of the site are the main aspects that increase the visit to the websites. The main decisions that were made in designing this website included the decision on the content and the use of different elements to create the layout of the site. Once this is done the navigation structure was developed. A navigation structure provides details of how each page within a website is accessed. A complex structure of a website would limit the effectiveness of a website through limited access to content and information.
To define the relationship of different pages within the website, a flow chart was used to show the movement from the home page to the other pages within the website. A flowchart is a fairly simple method of defining these relationships and mapping the structure of a website (Morley et al. 2010). In order to draw a websites flow chart, single boxes were used to represent pages starting from the home page or log in page and linking the other pages in a hierarchical tree format.
