There is a lot of work, even before writing one line of code but many people ignore it and they really suffer during the project, and they are also wasting their time.
they pay too much attention to details like "what's the greatest font that I can use?" or "is this image better than the other one? So here I am talking about the Design Approach I am using, to simplify my work and I don't get distracted by other things during code.
So let's Suppose I want to make a website for my own Fictional "Coffee Shop", this will look like this at the end: so I have all the creative freedom to do anything, So first thing I have to make a logo:
- There are a lot of websites where you can make a logo easily for free.
- I am a designer so I used Pixlr X, and this is the logo I made:
- This logo is using "LEADERSON" Font and a Free Icon Available "Coffee Cup".
So Next Thing is the Color Pallete, I prefer the simple color palette method???
- One Dark Black Shade
- One White Gray Shade
- One Primary Color
So I chose simple
Brown as my primary color and using
whitesmoke as gray shade and using simple
I use Google Fonts a lot in my projects, so I use this approach to save my time and use Good Fonts :
- One Sans-Serif
- One Serif
- One Creative Special Font
So I just use the Base font size, and Line-Height like this
body/base line-height = minimum 1.5 x body/base font-size
- Now Open Your Sass or CSS File and Store your fonts and Color values in CSS or Sass Variables
- Specify Font Size and Line Height and
- Import all the assets in the folder of your project
Now you can easily code without getting distracted about choosing fonts, colors, type_system, and Images. I will tell you what's next in the next article.
