Simple Design Strategies for Effective Homepage Design

Ecommerce Website Design

The importance of a well-designed homepage cannot be overstated. A great homepage must both capture the eyes and minds of your potential targets. While many companies strive for dynamic homepages with the latest and greatest flashy design, many companies forget that their homepage is also a powerful communication tool. At Project6, our UI/UX experts strive to create homepage designs that both attract and keep customers. Here are two vital communication opportunities that businesses miss when designing their homepage.

Who are you and what do you offer?

While this may seem like an obvious suggestion, many homepages fail to adequately communicate who they are, what they do, and the benefits of their products and services on their homepage. While a homepage is a great location display your awards, testimonials, and other news, its main goal is to quickly communicate your brand’s core value proposition. At Project6, we design homepages that speak volumes. For our client Sindeo, we designed a beautiful website with clean design and crisp communication of the company’s offerings.

Where do you want your visitors to go?

Don’t just rely on your site’s main navigation to usher your users around—even on the homepage. A great homepage design (and page design in general) is one that provides paths to the most important parts of your website/business. We kept this in mind when designing Kigali’s philanthropic website. Even though the cornerstone pages are listed in the main navigation (like “Why Cooling,” “K-CEP Windows,” and “Insights”) we also detailed these sections on the homepage for further clarity and attention.

Project6 Design, founded in 2001, is an award-winning graphic design firm committed to using intuitive design to shape brands and solve complex usability problems. We collaborate with clients to help them portray their brand’s story and to communicate it in a clear and compelling way.  For the best brand, print or web design services, contact Project6, the leading San Francisco design agency.
