Website designing is one of the most critical phases of web development process. Any IT Outsourcing services providing company that takes its work seriously will understand the importance of having a suitable web design. The need to have a well optimized web design becomes unavoidable when the website has been developed for the purpose of ecommerce only. For example, an online store would require an attractive, user friendly and SEO friendly design as these are essential for getting online traffic and making maximum revenue through it. Custom web development service providers are usually experts in using different layouts for creating a suitable web design according to client’s requirements.
The layout of a website plays a vital role in deciding the overall look and feel of a website. Custom web development helps clients in acquiring web solutions that are designed specifically around their unique requirements. There are 6 basic types of layouts using which the web application development company can create a design that suits the requirements at hand. In general, custom web development involves a scheme of 3 or more layouts. These layouts are as discussed below:
Symmetrical Layout: The symmetrical Layout is a balanced and formal layout format that allows forming symmetrical designs by placing different elements on either side of the page or in the center. Extra elements on any one side can be balanced by placing similar sized elements on the other side.
Asymmetrical Layout: The asymmetrical layout allows designers to place elements in an uneven manner. This allows the web application development company to exercise their imagination and effectively convey the desired message through the website.
Isolative Layout: The isolative layout allows developers to place logos and important graphics on the page. These elements should be small in size and can be placed anywhere on the webpage. The level of importance and degree of visibility of these elements can be controlled in this layout.
Dominative Layout: Unlike the isolative layout, the logos and other similar elements are placed in an enlarged format on the page in dominative layout.
Radiative Layout: The Radiative layout enables designers to highlight various elements such as the images, content, logo, symbols etc by using flash effect on them. This helps in making these elements the centre of attraction and brings them into viewer’s attention.
Repetition Layout: The repetition layout is also meant for making above mentioned elements the center of attraction on the page by repeating them on the page and enhancing their visibility.
If a web application development company can make smart use of these layouts then they can achieve a really attractive and business oriented website for their clients. Custom web development allows further flexibility to developers while designing websites as they can use these layouts more freely and work around them according to client’s requirements.
