As the name implies, the header area of a web design occupies the very top of a website. It is mostly used for navigation and may feature tabs and links to bring the user to different areas of the website. Our own header here at the Webheads website is an example of this. Most header sections also remain the same across each webpage so that it acts as a constant navigational anchor across the entire website. On mobile devices, the tabs in the header area usually collapse into what is known as a hamburger menu. Tapping on this expands out the navigational options for mobile users to tap on and explore. Custom website design allows you to completely change or repurpose the header area to fit in with your ideal vision for your website. Take a look at our bespoke website design we created for Matt Todd Photography. This features a header that is rendered to appear on the left-hand side of the page running for the entire length of the page.
In between the header and footer areas is where webpages reside. As a client, your imagination is really allowed to run wild with your web design here. Whatever colours, fonts, images, videos, animations, graphics and more can be added to your webpages in any size and layout of your choosing with custom website design. There is no rulebook so to speak, so you can let the Webheads team know what you would like and we can design and build this into a reality for you. We will of course advise on the best way to render certain elements so that they do not impact on the overall user experience (UX) and website speed. But overall the main body of each custom website design can be completely unique and built the way you want it. This is a great way to stand out from your competition and have a website optimised from the inside out to assist with making conversions and retaining loyal customers to your business.
Most website designs feature the header, webpage and footer areas as they are universal elements which assist website visitors with navigation, content interaction and in making conversions. However with custom and bespoke website design that Webheads offer to you, you can choose to either have these elements designed and built exactly as you want them to appear or you may opt not to have them as part of your website at all. Bespoke website design is custom and unique to you and your vision. Let us know what you dream website is and we will make this into a reality for you.
