Well, there’s no need to panic, because we’re going to run you through some of the most common web design phrases:
Resolution: Let’s start with an easy one, shall we? When working with any team of web designers, you’re bound to hear the word “resolution” on a regular basis, and so it’s important that you understand that this refers to the number of pixels in an image. Obviously, the higher the resolution, the better the quality of the image- but low resolution means that an image will look very blurry. Keep this in mind if you’re being bamboozled by what you’re being told.
Typography: No, this doesn’t refer to the study of words, language or anything like that- as instead, typography is the word used to describe the arrangement of text. This can cover everything from where the words are placed on the page, to the font and the spacing between each letter and word. Whenever a web designer mentions typography, the important thing to remember is that they’re trying to make your website easier for people to read.
Alignment: This is all about making sure that your website is perfectly balanced and easy to use. Nobody wants to click onto a website and become confused by the layout- and causing any confusion or frustration is a sure-fire way of deterring users to your competitors. Alignment is all about making sure that everything is logically set out, as your website needs to maintain a certain sense of order while people explore it.
