1. Use just 3 colours

1. Use just 3 colours

When picking your colour palette I recommend using just 3 colours. One colour for your background. One colour for your typography. And one colour for your accents. By accents, I mean things like buttons. A grand total of three colours!

You can use variations of your 3 colours. For example, when I use black I do use some greys. But rarely do I ever introduce more than 3 completely different colours into the design.

If you can’t pick your own colours, Great! Just use black, white and a single brand colour for your highlights.

2. Use just one font

2. Use just one font

When choosing fonts for your website design I recommend using just one classic typeface.

Your font family must include a number of different weights. For example Heavy, Bold, Medium and Light.

To achieve variation and hierarchy in your designs you can change up the size and weight of your font.

Super important! You must pick a high-quality font. It must read well in long copy. For example your blog posts. I recommend using classic fonts like Helvetica.

If you must use a brand font. Use it just for the main headers. Then use your single chosen font for the rest of your website designs. Done!

3. Make everything modular

3. Make everything modular

The average website design is going to be viewed on dozens of different devices.

Your design must be able to flex and stack and still look good. This means using a modular design.

By modular design, I mean every element you create should be self-contained.

Whenever you’re laying out your page elements, always be working with independent, separate modules. How your design is going to flex vertically and horizontally. And how it’s going to stack on top of each other...

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
