Four Things You [Probably] Forgot to Design

Look, we all forget to design something on occasion. That’s totally cool!

Well, it’s not cool…but like…it’s okay. It happens. This list will make you better. Or at least more aware.


This is just a list of a few things that you might have forgotten to design.


Favicon

Think of it as a tiny profile pic cute right? Favicon's are the little icons you see on a tab when you visit a website. The main purpose of them is to make it easy for your customer to find you when they have multiple tabs and windows open, but they are probably a lot more important than you think - they are also visible on browser bookmarks, history and toolbars.⠀


404 Error Page

If a user clicks on a broken link, HTTP will automatically display an error via a 404 page. Not only the error is frustrating but really puts off the user.

Why take the risk? Instead, design a creative and interactive error page. Try adding something funny, like a meme. Most visitors don’t know what ‘404 error’ means. All they know is that something went wrong. Hence, give them the news creatively.


Social Images

This is the image that shows up when you tweet a link on Twitter, make a post on Facebook, etc… Make sure it is a reflection of your brand personality.


Terms of Service & Privacy

Just do it for the folks over in legal (you). You don't want to get sued.

It is super important to design one and place it where it is easily visible. It’s a set of rules and regulations that users must follow to use a service.

But why do you need it if half the people don’t read it anyway? It’s a legally binding contract between the users and service provider. It informs people of what data the service provider collects and where the data is used.

This page lets you claim the content on your website and determine how users can use or share it, also called the Intellectual Property Clause.


Hopefully this can at least be a handy reference when you are designing your website.
