Graphics are an integral part of most websites. They help build brand awareness, sell a product or simply make the visit to the site more enjoyable. But like most other forms of media, adding graphics to a website requires a little thought. Using appropriate graphics – careful selection will provide the correct visual stimuli to your visitors.
If creating a more visually appealing site isn’t incentive enough, know that including images on your page also improves your Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Studies have shown that pages with photos and videos attract significantly more visitors than those without photos and videos.
There are multiple ways to incorporate graphics into your site. Whether it's a simple illustration or 3d computer graphics, we can custom design website graphics to suit your content. Let’s take a look at a few different places where you can use images throughout your website:
A web page header is a graphic image at the top of a web page that identifies the web site, and sometimes, a particular section of the site. Header images or banners are a strong visual element of your site design.
A logo is a visual representation of what your brand is, or what your product is. Branding would create your image and reputation in the market thus influencing how the market perceives you.
If your website relies heavily on images, then having an image gallery is a great way to showcase your content on your website. A simple image gallery on a page can contain thumbnails shown in a grid layout. These thumbnails when clicked, will display an enlarged/ complete image of your thumbnail. Alternately if you need to regularly upload content, you may want to have an easier way to manage the image gallery. We can provide custom image galleries with admin page, from which you can easily upload your images.
In this type of gallery you can see a grid of all the thumbnails and when you click on one of the thumbnails, you immediately see the complete image on right side. This is one of the popular ways of incorporating a gallery on your web page. You can also include categories in this layout.
An image slider can be inserted into the header or at any position on a webpage to show multiple images in the same area. A set of images can be shown randomly or in a sequence. This type of image slider can be useful to show different services or products offered on a website.
These could be simple graphic illustrations, such as a floor plan created in adobe illustrator.
