Warning: I am not a designer.
These are random tips I collected on various websites.
I’ve been trying to improve and learn some web design skills. Here are some impactful tips with least amount of efforts.
Font weight comes in 9 styles
100 Ultralight 200 Thin 300 Light 400 Regular 500 Medium 600 Semibold 700 Bold 800 Heavy 900 Black
Try to use few of them, 3.
Make Important things stand out
Make it Bold. Create a color difference.
Use 3 colors
Too many colors become hard to manage code-wise and confuse your readers. I’m still trying to refactor this blog. I’m sorry!
Using em, rem for font-size
They change dynamically!
Unitless Line Height
1.5 - 1.7 is good for paragraph text. Line height is too small is easy to read the same line again. Tighter line height is better for headlines because font is already big!
Wrap your text in about 50-80 characters. Too much horizontal movements for people's eyes are not good.
Visit websites that is design nice. Use things in life that has nice design. Build taste to reject ugly things.
