Design is a rather important part of a site as the first impression your site makes on visitors depends especially on site design. So this means that it largely determines the success of the site.
Your job as a web designer is to make the site the most attractive and simple one, so that visitors do not become entangled in it and would come back to it again and again.
What concerns the size of pages, it is desirable that it does not exceed 50-70 kb. Take into account the fact that your site is going to be promoted and in addition various advertisements will be placed in it, such as banners and pictures. So it will be inconvenient if visitors have to wait for 2-3 minutes while the site page along with advertisements loads.
The creation of design also includes the navigation structure. Always make sure that from any page a visitor has an opportunity to return to the homepage. Usually a link to the main page is placed at the top. Try to make the site user-friendly, put yourself in place of ordinary users and navigate yourself through the site.
Never use the same color scheme for the background and font. Also, do not use a colorful image for the background, especially if it makes the font badly visible. In general, use a similar color scheme. There is no need to add contrasting colors.
Ask your friends to navigate through your site, let them evaluate it, be frank and express their personal opinion. This will help you make your site better to satisfy each of your site visitors.
