Design for Non-Designers


Keep number of fonts low. Two fonts good rule of thumb.

Use fancy/display fonts sparingly.

Vary weights, style, etc rather then different fonts.

  • Beautiful web type.

Very important and trendy to have whitespace wher required.

Whitespace makes it easier for people to see elements and use your website.

Reduce visual clutter, aim for clean design.

User Experience

Most important action on your design? Make it easy to find and use.

Data and Analytics

Pay attention to your goals. Make sure it is working the way you want it to.


Less content, short and more concise, the more likely somebody is going to read it.

Big paragraphs sign of clutter.


Small, not too big.

Look at other designs for inspiration. Don’t steal, but be inspired.


Practise, practise, practise.
