Typography Trends in Web Design

The current web design trends take a turn to minimalism, with flat design coming out in the lead. When you strip away many visual elements that create a visual impact, you rely heavily on typography to make your design beautiful. 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for typography trends, particularly if you are working with responsive or flat designs for Joomla. Keep an eye out for these popular trends, and consider incorporating them into your own designs if they need a typography face lift.

5 Must-Have Joomla Extensions

Joomla's basic feature set is powerful, especially with Bootstrap being included in Java's core coding. Bootstrap is a collection of javascript and CSS snippets that are easily added to your website, the template, or modules. It provides a great deal of flexibility to an already great content management system, but sometimes you need features that Joomla and Bootstrap can't cover. The open source nature of this script provides fertile ground for an endless amount of extensions. When you're ready to go beyond Joomla's basic functions, a quick jaunt into the available extensions reveals a way to take your website to the next level.

The ins and outs of Flat Design

Joomla sees its share of user interface trends, as the latest web fad passes from CMS to CMS. One of the latest UI trends is flat design. Instead of 3D elements galore, with gloss dripping off of Web 2.0 everything, you have simple, nearly minimalist designs moving to the forefront. One of the most prominent displays of flat design came from iOS 7, which revamped its interface to embrace this simple style.

Web Design Failure as Part of the Learning Process

No web designer is perfect, and failure is often an essential part of the creative process. You can have the biggest budget in the world for a site, but sometimes things go horribly wrong. Instead of stressing yourself out over a web design that simply doesn't work, do a postmortem and determine how the design went wrong, and what you can do in the future to avoid similar problems.

5 Tips to Create a High Power Joomla Call to Action

The Inbound Marketing methodology delivers incredible return on relatively simple tactics. At it's core, Inbound gets it's greatest power from just 7 basic functions: social media, SEO, content, calls to action, landing pages, forms, and automation.

One of the least glamourized and most important of these tactics is the call to action, which is the essential step in converting a site visitor to a lead and customer.

On Joomla sites, Calls to Action are often a custom HTML module that prompts a user to click through to a landing page. Once on that landing page, the user can learn more about an offer, fill out a form, and become a valuable lead for your business.

If you're not quite a CTA pro, these tips will help you create Joomla Calls to Action that get the job done:
