COLORS & FONTS
Keep the fonts with the formality of the website in mind. A business site should make the font as well readable and presentable as possible. A simple sans-serif type font would work well. On the other hand, a more artistic website, perhaps a fine art site, may want to use a more fanciful font in it's work.
Make sure the theme of the website matches the company or organization it represents. If the website was made for a food company, it would make sense to stick to that particular category, rather than revert to a different theme.
Try and design the website with matching colors. If the theme of the website is darker than normal, try and keep the amount of bright colors to a minimum. Be sure to never mix two very different colors, such as yellow and purple.
WEB DEVELOPER - MANAGING DIRECTOR
Jon is a website designer in Flagstaff Arizona. He started with web design at the age of 17 where he created "Only the Best Apps" - a website where he would test and choose "Only the Best" software from around the internet. It was all hand coded with Homesite - at that time the best (in his humble opinion) HTML editor around. He believes in local economy, open source technology, and helps bring the best the internet has to offer.
