There is such an overwhelming amount of photography website designs around the Internet. Sometimes in life, we get inspired by the strangest things. In this article you will see how a simple baby toy inspired some insights into photography websites.
My nephew was playing with this musical toy and certain things the toy did sparked some thoughts.
- Keep your colors consistant – This toy has so much going on with color. Of course, because it’s a baby toy the colors are meant to trigger certain responses. A photography website color scheme should be simple so that the color in the photographs are drawing the viewers eye.
- Music – This toy is meant for a child to hear and play music. My nephew already loves music, so when he plays with the toy he also dances. A photography website can have music, but think about the audience before setting it to auto-play. Will your audience enjoy the music?
- Things to touch – Baby toys have so much to touch. Things move, open, make noise and have texture. A photography website should also have things to touch, but in an organized way. Keep the layout clean and have a focus so your visitors do what you want.
- Durability – Most baby toys, like the one you see in the photo above, are built to last. Make sure you are using a well designed and thought out WordPress photography theme and use the best website hosting for photographers so you’re website is safe.
Now it’s your turn. Think about a toy and comment below with what it teaches you about supercharging your photography websites.
