Designing Engaging Header Images: Think Outside the Box | Design Shack

One of the first things you do in designing a site is to decide what that first chunk of pixels that users will see looks like. You’ve got to grab their attention and communicate your message above the fold or risk that person moving on to their next open tab.

Unfortunately, many of us fall into predictable patterns for this piece of the site. We use the same old tricks, shapes and plugins and come up with a result that might look great, but isn’t really that exciting. Today we’ll take a brief look at how you can make your header images more interesting. Along the way we’ll see some live examples from sites that have implemented these techniques successfully.

Jane Austen (16 de diciembre de 177518 de julio de 1817) fue una destacada novelista británica, que vivió durante el período de la regencia, es decir entre la época georgiana y la victoriana. La ironía que emplea para dotar de comicidad a sus novelas hace que Jane Austen sea contada entre los “clásicos” de la novela inglesa, a la vez que su recepción va, incluso en la actualidad, más allá del interés académico, siendo leídas por un público más amplio.
