Stick to only a few fonts: Typically, using more than three different fonts makes the design look cluttered and often, unreadable. You would only really need to use three at a maximum; one for a heading, another for the main body of text and the third for maybe a call to action.
Get someone else to check your work: Often when you’re working on a website, after a while, you can become a little blind to your own work. Sometimes you cease to be able to tell what’s working and what’s not. Getting an outside opinion can help. Sometimes it’s good to get the opinion of someone who isn’t in the business. If the website you’re working on is going to be primarily used by the public, it’s good to have their opinion.
Go overboard with images: Sure, images look great, but only use them when they’re adding something to the site. Too many images can actually detract from the website and can make it run slowly.
Ignore the brief: A client has come to you because you are a professional web designer. But that doesn’t mean that they don’t have their own ideas and opinions about what they want the website to look like. You can create a dialogue and give your professional advice to clients about whether you think a certain feature would work, or whether a certain colour would be better. But never ignore the brief.
