The loud and extreme colors of the 90’s are back and trendier than ever. Reimagined color schemes are a perfect way to show your audience that your business is bold, courageous and confident! Adding some vibrant and clashing colors to your web design is a great way to instantly attract attention. The key to all of this is moderation. Your website should be lively and bold but never distracting or misleading. Yes, the visual experience should be an important factor when building your website however, it should not take away from the most important piece of your website, the content!
If you are reading this thinking that your website doesn’t need animations, you should re-think your decision. Being presented with information is no longer part of the user experience. Instead, users are looking to interact with information that is being given. Integrated animations are a perfect way to generate this user experience and create a memorable impression within seconds of visiting your website. Don’t forget to keep in mind that “integrated” is the key word here. Do not include animations for the sake of adding it. Make it purposeful! A tip for doing this is to call attention to your content by strategically building eye-popping animations that will lead the user back to landing pages and to other important content.
Here is an example of sharp and sleek animations that have been perfectly integrated.

Easy Mobile Friendly Tips
•Create a responsive web design where your “calls to action” are front and center of the page and your secondary tasks are available through menus.
•Keep menus short, sweet, and easy to navigate
•Take advantage of those icons! As previously mentioned, responsive website design is all about the visual experience. An icon is more likely to intrigue a user rather than a word or phrase.
•Create a mobile web design that is easy to navigate back to the homepage. Hint: most users will assume to click the logo in the top corners of the page when trying to navigate back to the homepage.
•It’s important to have a CSS coder handy to make sure your website is truly mobile friendly. If you are looking for help, the Adventure team has the perfect coder for you!
