    Are you referring to what kind of design will be used, e.g. page format, fonts and colours used, etc? Perhaps you are referring to what software or programming is used to design the site layout, or something else?

    I am still the beginner in the field of designing. I want some information regarding what format of fonts should be used? and what color combination will be used in web page layout? For example if you visit a site http://www.logojin.com/website-design.php
    in which different color combination and font color is used. In this font color is red, what you think about font color?

    kamran my personal preference is for black font, I find it much easier to read. As regards best colours, it really is difficult to answer that. Everyone will have their own preferences and different colours work best on different kinds of sites. E.g. pink might work well for a site selling lipstick, but not for a site selling power tools. You might have noticed already, but I like a Blue, black and white colour scheme - obviously that doesn't imply that it's the best colour scheme.

    This thread might help you - Logo design and your business colors.

    Welcome to BAF jan! Thanks for joining and posting your question on our forum.
    Basically, the word "best" is based on the preference of each of us. And it will be different depending who you asked.
    And there are lots of tools, and software used in web designing. What kind of tool are you looking for?

    Welcome to our business forum jandrenievs, as GekiDan said "best" really depends on your individual requirements and circumstances. There is no "best" tool for everyone. You could consider DreamWeaver. Another option would be to learn HTML from a site like W3Schools.com and use free tools such as NotePad or NoteTab Light to do your HTML coding.

    Please feel free to start a new thread with more info on your requirements and your coding or development knowledge and we will do our best to help you.

    For web design, making sure you work with a good screen resolution is essential as you want to cater for generic screen sizes (eg. most likely 1280px across). Look at design trends but make sure you consider your target market. I prefer clean designs which are simple yet appealing. Start by sketching out a few designs, and maybe posting that here and see how people respond. I think the simple header and 2 columns tend to be a successful design for beginners due to its simplicity. I think if you could create something simple to show us, we can provide feedback as to what needs to be done to improve.

    There are many technique by which we can design a website. E-commerce or dynamic websites are normally created in .NET or JAVA. Static websites we can design by PHP, HTML etc.

For example, I have just started to develop a eCommerce website in Magento platform and use Dreamweaver software for web design. You can also use free ready made templates as a web designing.

    It is a very vast topic. I use attractive images with colours and background and medium font. I can't explain it though. You will learn about it from your own experience.
