The world of web design revolves around limiting one’s creativity so as it doesn’t cross the line of professionalism. Every designer seeks to carve his/her design with the chisel of their expertise so that it can compete. Professional designers in most website development companies know how to make their work engaging. But, only a few know about the aspects that ruin a good work and ends up with a bad user experience.
The customers of your customers are who you are actually doing all that hard work. And if they dislike some of your UI techniques then there’s no good reason to spending your precious time in making certain aspects extraordinary. Want to know which web designing tricks are widely unexpected? Here you go:
1. Almost All Pop-Ups are Annoying
You might have experienced it yourself. For instance, if you are visiting one of those big web designing blogs and a certain pop-up suddenly blocks your path and asks you either to subscribe or enter your email to avail some discount offer.
So, what I suggest here is give your user or reader some time before letting the pop-up appear. It will help them develop a deep interest in your content or liking for your services or products. Another good way to get on with pop-ups is to devote some time to bring the highest level of text and visual creativity in it.
2. Hijacking Reader’s Scroll
Sometimes, in order to appear ‘cool’ & and ‘advanced’, web designers use scroll hijack which put the users in confusion. Firstly, they try to comprehend that how much scrolling will be needed in order to reach a certain point.
In simpler words, people in this world never appreciate if you take something out of their control. And by hijacking their scrolling, you steal the control from their hands.
3. Push Notifications
Okay, you want your users to stay updated with everything you do whether it is a new blog or offering different services. And no doubt, they are only receiving tons of these notifications. Hence, your’s will also add to their annoying list.
In a world where quick psychological events trigger big decision, every aspect of your design must be perfected. Several web designing services are advising their clients to not to rely on push notifications, scroll hijacks, and pop-ups.
