There is only two types of web designs because there is just two types of web marketing. Regardless of the market we choose it is a complete and whole market, but there are two major components. That whole market of ours is a lot like an iceberg. There is a smaller group that are ready to buy and they are like the visible part of the iceberg above the water. And then there is the vast and unseen portion below the surface that have not made up their mind and they are looking for more information. Which portion does your web site serve?

One of the key components of good web design for an eCommerce store is the logo. Through your logo, you can set your store apart, and you can also make it easier for people to recognize your store. The logo should appear in one of the top corners on every page. You should also use it on your social media platforms to make sure people can quickly identify you. However, constructing a logo is more than just coming up with an image. You must make sure that you develop the logo so that it works within your overall web design

and remains identifiable.


Simplified Palette


Some of the best logos are also some of the simplest. Think of the McDonald’s logo and the Target logo. Both of these logos are exceptionally simple in their formation, and they only have one or two colors. They aren’t great works of art. They aren’t incredible to look at. They are simple, and they are recognizable. If your logo has more than two colors, then you need to reconsider your logo design. You don’t have to match every color present in your web design in the logo. Choose the primary or the contrast color as the main logo color, and keep the color selection as simple as possible.


Viewability Regardless of the Size


You never know what devices people will be viewing your website or your social media pages on. Having a recognizable logo allows customers to immediately connect it with your brand. This means that you need to have a logo that is viewable regardless of the size. In other words, it should be viewable as a thumbnail as well as a on a large screen. Most of the time, when you’re using something like furniture web templates, you will have the option of uploading a standard sized logo as well as various thumbnails. Check to make sure that the logo can be viewed clearly in each of these sizes. To help achieve this goal, you should make sure that you use clean lines and avoid anything that distorts when it is shrunk.

Memorable Logo


The logo itself needs to be memorable. Otherwise, it does no good. Creating memorability can be challenging, but most businesses accomplish this by tapping into the core of their business. In some cases, you must think of your business in an abstract fashion. Target developed the bull’s eye to represent getting the best sales each and every time. Most people don’t automatically associate bull’s eyes with shopping, but Target managed to create that association. It is now one of the more commonly known logos in the United States.


When you are developing your logo, you need to keep in mind certain key elements for the design so that it will work within your web design as a whole. First, make sure that you use only a simplified palette. Logos are not places for details. Make sure that the logo itself remains viewable, regardless of the scale. This way, people can recognize it quickly. Also take the time to develop a logo that is memorable, even if you have to think outside the box.

With the advent of high-definition screens, web designers now have to make sure that the images they use are optimized for HD. Skipping this process may render websites blurry or pixelated, leaving a not so good impression on visitors. One of the best ways to deal with HD screens is to use Vector Graphic whenever possible.



Vector Graphic is scaleable at any size, so it will look great on an HD screen. In this post, we would like to share a quick tip on how to c

onvert your Photoshop Text into SVG. If you have, for example, a text-based logo in your design, you’ll probably find this tip very useful.



Photoshop Stage

For this example, we will use a simple text-based logo created using the Pacifico font family (screenshot).



On the the Layers tab in Photoshop, right-click on the text layer and select Convert to Shape (screenshot).



Then, save the file in Photoshop EPS format.



Illustrator Stage

Open the EPS file in Adobe Illustrator. You should see that the text is now a vector object.



In this stage, you can make a few adjustments such as removing unnecessary layers, changing the background colors, or resizing. To resize the document in Illustrator, just go to File > Document Setup and select Edit Artboards.


You can use your mouse to resize the Artboard, or specify the size more accurately by filling in the Width (W) and the Height (H).



Next, save the file in SVG format, which is the default option. And that’s it.



Conclusion

The act of converting the font into Shape is to ensure compatibility across multiple computers – when you are working remotely, different fonts installed on different systems may cause the "Font missing" error. This may also happens with different versions of Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Turning text to SVG will help minimize or eliminate issues to do with compatibility.
