Website Is …

A wide collection of images that shows importance of website, with detailed description.

#1

access-to-info

Did you know that if you own a website, you can actually track everything that is happening on it? You can even look for information that will tell you how many people visited your site, or how many people messaged or emailed you. You can access the progress of your website and view all its pages. You can even make an update anytime, making it much less expensive than printed material.

#2

accessibility

Have you ever experienced having to turn customers away because it’s closing time? Well, you don’t have to close the doors of your website.  An online site can be visited any time of the day or night. People will look to your site instead of going to your shop because it is more accessible. Just make sure to post enough information about your products and services.

#3

better-relationship

Having a website can build better relationships with your customers. You can send messages instantly to your customers through email. Also, your customers can review your products online and can also leave feedback for you and your business. It’s best to always send your customer a message. This is essential for building a good relationship with them. You can even give them more information about your business through messages or emails.

#4

increase-customer

Most businesses have local popularity, but what about potential customers outside their city?  A website can help you generate more customers. Not just outside your city, but worldwide. The internet offers a global community. With a website, your business will be visible around the world.

#5

less-expensive

Have you ever advertised your business through various forms such as printed media, radio, television or by other means? It’s expensive! Investing in advertising is necessary, but it takes a lot of money. Having a website will make promoting your company less expensive. Many versions of offline advertising available on the internet are sometimes free.

#6

long-term-clients

What do you think is the difference between client and a customer? Well, a customer is the one who walks in and buys something and that’s it. A client is your regular customer. He is buying your products or services daily or contractually. Having a website gives you a chance to gain more clients that can help your business grow.

#7

opportunity

A website gives you the opportunity to prove your credibility. You have to tell your customers why you deserve their trust through your website. This can earn positive feedback for your service and products. Also, your website serves as a place for a potential investor to explore what your business is about and what it can do in the future.

#8

satisfaction

Having a website will be more convenient for your customers and leads. Make it easy for your customers to purchase from you! Many will be more likely to visit your website, rather than driving a car to your physical location and browsing for your products. From a customer’s point of view, it’s better for them if they don’t have to ask anything. They can just find what they’re looking for on your online site.

#9

advertising

A website is more environmental friendly when it comes to advertising and marketing. There are lots of ways to advertise your products or services through the internet. One example is Facebook ads, an advertising feature offered through Facebook. Another one is called SEO.  This is a major advantage for your business. Having a good SEO service provider can boost the ranking of your website which quickly results in increased sales and higher profits.

Protect your website from HTTrack

Since you have learned the trick on how to track website using softwares like httrack in the previous post Premium Template? Crack it !

Many designers and developers queried me regarding protection against this kind  of track,  since they work really hard on developing those websites and people track it and use it without paying a penny.

So after surfing a bit, initially i found that it is impossible to protect it from being tracked because If you put a website online, when people “view” it, they are downloading it to their computer, you are essentially giving it to them. Then the question becomes “I gave my website to someone, how can I not give it to them?”

But though we are humans, we have got solutions for any shit .

Follow this steps to protect against this track:

#1 Make .htaccess  file

Just open any code editor, copy paste the below content and save it with name as .htaccess (Nothing before “.” )

# Kick off httracker
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^HTTrack [OR]
RewriteRule ^.* – [F,L]

#2 Simply Upload it

Just upload it on your server where all your sites resides

That’s it !

But wait

There’s not just one software which does this tracking, to protect your site from all these kinds of softwares write the below code in .htaccess file

# Full Fledged htaccess Blacklist from Web warrior (just a bit promotion 😉 )

Firedrop.ai

Era of AI

Artificial Intelligence have already replaced hundreds of thousands of workers across the world and it will undoubtedly be a growing trend for years to come.  The realm of website design is not escaping this talking point either.

The rumor of an AI system that can develop amazing websites with very little input from the user are true. Here’s the one

Firedrop.ai – Founded in 2015

Image result for firedrop ai

It is found to be one of the easiest web builder to-date.  Can their system do everything a human can do?  Of course not, but it could make it easier for a non-techie to build a starter website.

Recently we have seen the emergence of advanced versions of website builders, like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress.

Image result for wordpress wix drupal

These WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) design platforms are easy to work with. For just a few dollars down and an afternoon’s time Anyone can create a generic web page that looks semi-professional. How can Firedrop.ai improve on that?

Their founders claim that the user experience is incredibly simple: you add your content, hit the “Design it” button and behind-the-scenes algorithms crunch away to produce a completely unique, tailored design around that content. It’s the complete antithesis of template-based solutions like WordPress which require you to fit your content around a design, and allows the average non-techie individual to get a completely bespoke website in as little as 30 seconds, from start to launch.

Sounds interesting!

Website Developed in firedrop.ai

Now lets have a look at a site created by Sacha (Firedrop.ai): marccrouch.firedrop.me

Some good points

  • Quick Loading of website
  • Well Balanced color combination
  • Professionalism look and feel
  • Good layout
  • Responsive

Firedrop will be offered through a subscription model priced at £25 (~$33) per month, per website.

Conclusion

That’s not all. For everyone who obsesses about performance and conversion rates, this Firedrop assistant is hard at work for you in this department as well. No need for complicated analytic tools or to scrutinize data again and again. Since Firedrop keeps learning after you’ve launched, it monitors behavior and conducts automatic A/B tests – and makes adjustments for you! Yes, you can continue to improve your site without lifting a finger.

Ready to have your website practically build itself? Ready to experience the ease of collaborating with your personal A.I. web designer? Sign up for beta release or learn more at firedrop.ai.

Looking forward for your reviews regarding this technology !

Upcoming Challenges for Web Designers

Web designing is not an easy task. It takes a lot of creativity, uniqueness and brainstorming sessions to come up with a nice web design. Only a web designer can tell about the challenges they go through on regular basis. Web designs which are liked and appreciated by target market and clients are mostly the result of constant development and regressive critical thinking. This makes web designing a challenging role. On the contrary, increase in competition and technology there are always new challenges which designers have to face.

Machine Learning

With the launch of TensorFlow and other similar open-source programmes, machine learning will quickly become the backbone of our digital world. Machine learning can be used for a huge variety of purposes, from learning about how you talk to the layout of a website.

Image result for TensorFlow

TensorFlow is Google’s open source software library for machine learning

Multivariant testing powered by machine learning will be able to automatically test and optimize a website at a customer level; meaning each customer sees a website specifically designed and tailored for them, from the language used to the layout of the page.

Growth in Popularity of Video

Related image

Back in the younger days of the internet, it made sense to include as few images as possible in order to keep loading times down, and simply convey everything through text. However, with a world average download speed of 5Mbps (which is, of course, dragged down by a few outliers) and averages ranging from 10 to 20Mbps in the developed world, designers no longer need to hold back so much when deciding how to make sites look attractive.

No format has benefited more from fast internet speeds than video. Video backgrounds are now relatively widespread, as are introductory videos to services and products, as well as video tutorials.

Designers have already adopted this trend with gusto by integrating videos into the overall design process, and the future is likely to make this trend more ubiquitous.

Wearable Devices

This is a market which is expected to be worth $31.27 billion by 2020, and there are new devices coming out all the time.

Image result for wearable devices

There’s Jawbones, Moov Nows, Fitbits, Apple watches, MyZones, Microsoft Bands, Pebbles, Misfits, Coconuts (alright, that last one is made up), and those are all just wrist devices. There’s also the exciting field of virtual reality wearables, such as the Occulus Rift, the Sony Playstation VR, the Samsung Gear VR, the Microsoft HoloLens and the Razer OSVR. Five more devices have probably begun development or launched their own Kickstarters during the time you’ve been reading this list.

In other words, it’s pretty safe to assume that wearables aren’t just a fad. From a design standpoint, they present exciting new challenges: all-new interfaces to work with, plus maintaining styles across platforms.

Smartwatches, for example, provide a unique design challenge due to their minimal form factor (and you thought designing for 480 x 272 resolutions was a challenge), and virtual reality devices require menus that must be easy to navigate either using eye-tracking or additional wearables such as gloves.

I, for one, am very excited to see what new design trends wearable technology will enable in the coming years.

Ever-Increasing Complexity of UI Animations

Image result for UI Animations in web designing

When it comes to animations in UI design, you don’t want them to jump out at your users like tacky PowerPoint presentations. In fact, the consensus amongst designers nowadays seems to be that animations should be used sparingly to enhance the experience and provide cues as how to interact with an interface.

Nowadays, there are endless collections of complex animations being shared between designers in sites such as CodePen.io, as well as new JavaScript libraries popping up every day. Designers need to be able to separate the needlessly complex from the actually useful and find the best ways to integrate these animations into their designs to maximize the user experience.

Conclusion

Web Designers don’t have it easy. Not only do you need to have great taste, but also learn to use a wide variety of tools, and on top of all that, stay on top of web development trends.

Thankfully, web developers and designers stand side-by-side in the trenches, and the amount of resources available to keep your skills sharpened is second to none.

How to pick perfect UI font

Picking the perfect font is never easy. And when your choice could make the difference between a delightful, easy-to-use interface and the new app everybody loves to hate, it only becomes more challenging. Here’s how to pick the right face for your users.Picking the right font for a user interface poses some unique challenges.

You’re looking for a real workhorse typeface. A font that performs well across contexts and devices. A face that looks just as pretty set at 72px as it does at 10px. A font that has easily distinguishable capital Is and lowercase Ls.

With that in mind, here’s what to look for in a font for your UI.

1. Generous x-height

In typography, x-height measures the distance between the baseline (the imaginary line most letters “sit” on) and the mean height of lowercase letters when you ignore ascenders like the top of the H and T.

Image result for Generous x-height

Why look at your font’s x-height? Because larger x-heights tend to translate to easier legibility when set at small sizes.

In interface design, you rarely have space for a lot of large-set text, so typesetting is all about striking a balance between text size and legibility. A font with a generous x-height will let you go smaller without becoming illegible.

2. Easily distinguishable letterforms

It really wasn’t designed for small sizes on screens. Words like milliliter can be very difficult to decipher. If you ever had to read or write a password with 1, i, l or I, you know the problem.

–Erik Spiekerman on the difficulties of using Helvetica in user interfaces

Alphabets enable an astounding range of expression with a very small set of graphical elements. That’s amazing — but the unfortunate side effect is that some letterforms are very easy to confuse, especially when they’re set at smaller sizes.

Here are the most common culprits for letterform confusion:

  • a c e o (that’s A, C, E, and O)
  • Il1 (capital I, lowercase L, and the number 1)
  • O0 (capital O and zero)

This problem can be particularly pronounced in geometric fonts (like Futura, Avenir, Circular, etc.) so think carefully before choosing one of those for your UI.

‍Visual distinction between the capital I, lowercase L, and the number 1 are key for any good UI font. Hence, Helvetica’s less-than-stellar rep in UIs.

Next time you’re evaluating UI typefaces, be sure to compare these letters to see how easy they are to distinguish.

3. Full family flexibility

This isn’t necessarily a must-have — you can design an entire UI with one font — but it’s incredibly useful to have a variety of weights and styles at your disposal. Type designers realized long ago that certain design variations worked better at large sizes than small, and vice versa, which is why you’ll see variant styles of a font like displaycaption, condensed,etc.

So if your UI will include a variety of content types such as labels, help text, captions, and headlines, it’ll be incredibly useful for your font to support all those different sorts of text. It’s a bonus both for other designers on your teams and for your customers, as it allows you to use type expressively without risking a loss of cohesion in your designs.

4. Brand alignment

Finally, and very importantly, you want to make sure your UI font aligns with your site’s overall brand.

If you’re all about quirky, fun content, an eccentric font might be just the thing — just remember that quirky letterforms can be suboptimal in user interfaces. But if you’re gunning for the respectability of a New York Times, you’re going to want to go serif all the way. Unless, of course, you’re trying to reinvent the concept of news — in which case, go ahead and get sans-y with it!

You can usually get a strong sense of a font’s “brand” and how it relates to your site’s brand with just a look. But you don’t want to limit this evaluation to yourself: because your response to a font is subjective, you’ll want to ask others how they respond to your potential choices.
