So far we’ve covered basic design trends, responsiveness, accessibility, using white space to your advantage, typography, forms and 404 page designs, but we’re still only scratching the surface of all the elements you could consider in terms of raising your design game.
If you take away nothing else from our article, remember this: design is all about detail.
Considered in isolation, all these small points don’t amount to much but, as they are all piled on top of each other, they form a cohesive whole that people instinctively recognize as good design.
As a developer, you’re used to focusing on details in a very different context, but they’re equally important in this arena. Recognizing that truth goes a long way towards making you a better designer.
