Typeface, Color, & Spacing

It's the psychology of the web. The typefaces, color scheme and spacing chosen will invoke an emotional reaction. Understanding your users and invoking the right feelings are crucial to having a successful user experience.
Typography +

Typography

There are thousands of different typefaces out there, that finding the perfect one can take a bit of searching. First of all, think about the character of your organization, now try to match the tone and feelings with a typeface. Second, consider the readability of the typeface, either it being font-size, line-heights or leading. The font should be durable enough to be manipulated for responsive design. A final point, is choosing a second font, it usually takes more than one typeface to make a good design, look for san serifs and serif fonts that compliment one another.

Color +

Color

When it comes to color and web design there are three common color schemes that work best. First, the triadic color scheme which is based on drawing an equilateral triangle in the center of the color wheel where your base color is at one of the points and the other colors are at the other points. Red, yellow and blue are an example of a tri-color scheme. Second, the compound color scheme (aka split complimentary) is where you take two colors that are side-by-side on the color wheel and use each of their complimentary colors. For example, a base color of green would result with a color scheme of green, blue-green, red, and red-orange. Finally, analogous color schemes are colors that are within the same area of the color wheel. The best example of this would be of monochromatic selection, where you have a base color along with various light and dark shades of that color, which make up your color scheme.

Spacing

When it comes to spacing and the web, there are three main areas to focus on, image spacing, text spacing and section spacing. First of all, image spacing, in general, is the white space around the image object. Which can be accomplished by adding either padding or a margin to the image object. Secondly, text spacing, which is the focus on how the text runs together, is typically judged and adjusted through kerning, tracking, leading, and text alignments; such as: left, right, center or justify. Lastly, section spacing, which is the overall organization of the page with the goal of making all of the elements on the page work in harmony. This can be accomplished through having only what is needed on the page, hiding elements that are not always necessary and white space.

Templates

No one really wants to be the same as everyone else, but let's face it, sometimes we do not have a choice over what the users are going to prefer. Some organizations that can benefit from following similar templates are directory sites, retail/ e-commerce sites, and government sites. First of all, directory sites should provide search capabilities, detailed contact information for all of the listings, and offer multiple organized views; such as: ABC order, industry, popularity, etc.. Secondly, retail/e-commerce sites benefit from having product/service galleries which offer different organizational views, along with individual detailed product/service pages that provide descriptions & specifications, and a shopping cart. Lastly, Government and public service sites which are created in order to provide communities with general purpose information can benefit from following a very similar template from one another instead of trying to be over the top creative.

Static/Fixed

Static/Fixed page layouts are great if the majority of your site users accessing the information from similar screen sizes.

Also, the layout is typically coded with a fixed unit of measurement such as points or pixels, which is the common unit of measurement for static sites. Lastly, when converting an existing site to meet mobile needs, the development time is much less of an adaptive solution than that of a strictly responsive design solution.

Content Management Systems

CMSs are a place to create, edit, and publish a website. They are a serious option to explore if you have little knowledge of HTML or if there's going to be multiple people involved in the development/ maintenance of the site.

Web CMS

Web Content Management Systems consist of three different types, offline, online and hybrid all providing their own benefits. First of all, an offline content management system is created, edited, and maintained offline, once all the changes have been saved the user can upload to the online/live version, ensuring that changes made are the ones intended. Second, a cloud/online content management system allows the user to manage their content from virtually anywhere they have access to the internet, this is handy, but can be dangerous if content is changed on accident and the original is not backed up somewhere else. Last of all, the hybrid content management system offers its users with the ability to access their content, both on and offline, which when done carefully can be the ideal situation.

Enterprise CMS

Enterprise Content Management Systems are a great solution if your company has a lot of information that employees must look up at any given time throughout the day. First of all, it is easy to organize and index the information through a database which can consist of hundreds of tables that can work together. Second, the content can be tracked and maintained easily through metrics and file uploads which can give feedback on what content is relative and what is not. Lastly, the ability to set various authorization levels for users allows for both public and private access, which can allow public forms to be downloaded from the internet.

Mobile CMS

Mobile Content Management Systems are for delivering content to smartphones, pda's, and mobile devices, either as stand alone systems or an extension of a larger content management system. For instance, they can assist in converting a static, fixed website into a mobile ready version. Also, since there is a large demand for mobile ready content, many of the larger content management systems have created add-on and plug-in features that can seamlessly convert the content they already have to be mobile ready. Lastly, there are two types of template handling, either your site adds a sub-domains such as yoursite.com.mobile, or the site domain name stays the same but the content changes along with the screen.

Component CMS +

Component CMS

Component Content Management System is based on the several pieces that make up the whole document, instead of the document itself. For example, the component can be as large as a whole section, or as small as a link or image. Furthermore, this type of CMS can reduce in maintenance costs when you only have certain areas that require constant attention and maintenance. Lastly, it can be a great option for international organizations that are building out multi-lingual sites.
