The image rollover effect is an effect when one image replaces another as your mouse moves over, I’ve wrote about it before. This example is just a special case. There are no any images, you can find the image when hover your mouse on the link (button).
I find that there are three main components to a successful website: content, design and technology. They compliment each other and in whole help to open website’s full potential.
If you have well-written content and a user can easily navigate the website, studies have shown that the user will spend more time looking through your website. The content should be useful and interesting, designed for the target audience, and with the application of advanced technologies, your visitors positive experience will be guaranteed.
The total Web Design package should work toward the presentation of content. One of the rules of creating a successful web presentation is to always try maintain a good balance of content, design and technology, while keeping a close focus on the customer experience.
Your website is the “Calling Card” of your business on the web, and could give a new customer either a good or bad first impression of your business.
It all rests with you to help achieve it’s success.
Just come out strong, and put your best foot forward!
The image rollover effect is a widespread effect (when one image replaces another as your mouse moves over), you usually see it on many web pages. I prefer to use rollover effect (with CSS) for navigation buttons.
You need only 2 images (“image1.jpg” and “image2.jpg”) and some skills ;) to do the same this way.
I create a class “rollover”:
And “:hover”. See, the image2 replaces the image1- when you move your mouse over:
And my HTML-code:
<a class="rollover" href="page.html"></a>
Usually I use rollover effect with preload images.
First I create a class with display set ‘none’ at the ‘head’ section (or sure! you can place this class at stylesheet.css):
I add image tags for my pictures to the bottom of the home page (to the bottom of the page – before </body> – to display as soon as possible, prior to the browser starts to open the next page; then you can reference to the images anywhere and the images will load from browser cache memory):
Your logo needs to have an effect to your brand infallible – it will play a exceeding role in your brand recognition.
My client’s business is e-commerce – selling books with low prices (“i Pas cher”) through the internet. So I’ve got a thought: if their prices low, may be so low, that purchase is like a gift. It’s cheap like “buy something for a song”.
The next my step was a drawing. I drew books, gift boxes, bows for gift boxes… I drew and drank tons of coffee (coffee is for my creativity).
Choosing the Typography
I’ve got it! Fine, but the question is which font I am to use. The customer asked me about IPhone style, so I use Helvetica-Condensed-Thin (I cut it a little, so what?). And a glassy effect.
Probably my process is too simple, but I hope I tell you something useful – how it works :)
