10 Important principles and elements for website design

Posted by  Torus Infotech   Date  29/09/2017

1. Colour :- Color creates specific moods, atmospheres, channels of emotions and each shadow has certain specific connotations associated with it. Color can make or break your web design. The color is not a principle simply limited to the elements of the mark, although the color extends everything, even in photographs. The filters and image adjusters gave us the unlimited ability to adjust the color and tone of our photographs.



2. Scale : The scale is a big part of the web design, sometimes literally. In a very basic definition, the scale is the deliberate size of the individual elements. The scale can help us understand designs and images. In this way, the scale helps us to understand things. But, the scale should not always be based on realism.

This escalation of elements to signal importance is often called "hierarchy," which we will discuss more in depth later, do not fear! But for now, let's look at an example that uses the scale to signify importance.



3. Line :- Lines can also channel some ideas. Straight lines can evoke order and cleanliness, wavy lines can create movements and zigzag lines can involve tension or excitement. Let's look at an example of leader lines in web design. This web page has a cool diagonal grid with very strong lines of action that take you from one section to another, in a quick zigzag way.



4. Transparency :- Transparency is also a great technique for generating a sense of movement in static images.

Transparency isn’t just limited to digital graphics either. Check out how this invitation card for the New York Museum of Glass has aptly been printed onto 
transparent glass, giving the design a completely unique and attractive impact



5. Texture :- Clean, clear and elegant graphic designs can be wonderful, but sometimes roughing it out with some texture can be even better. The texture can add touch, depth and can add quite interesting effects to your design. Do you see how many textures can create a muddy effect? The more textures you apply, the more difficult type and other elements are to see without scrambling effect around each letter.



6. Composition :- The composition is a good point to finish, because it is the meeting of all the other principles that we have discussed. "Composition" refers to the general arrangement of the elements in your design, which seems a bit annoying when you explain it this way, I know, but it is actually one of the funniest design elements. This is where you can play, experiment and make a good design.



7. Depth :- Depth is an important and exciting principle in the world of design. Even with the most flattering media, you can create a sense of depth and an illusion that your design develops beyond the second dimension.

There are many techniques that you can use to communicate depth in your design, use a few. Now, shadows can be difficult devils, as they are not always linear, sometimes stretching, bending, distortion and deviation. Therefore, a good technique when exploring the use of shadow is to observe the shadows of the real world, see how the light hits several objects at different points and tries to replicate that.



8. contrast :- Contrast is often the key magic ingredient to create your 'pop' designs, which is a demand for many design clients. The contrast also has a great effect on readability and readability, this is an excellent reason why you see novels and many other publications printed in black on white background. Imagine if they printed using light gray on white background. The contrast would be very low and the type hard to read. So, if you use the type, make sure to increase this contrast.



9. Rules :-This is a sure point to spark a lot of debate and to divide all the designers of the room - half proclaiming that there are no rules in design, the other protest, there are many. And technically, both are right.

As with any skill, there are things you need to learn, and that includes general rules. Things like: make sure your type is legible, learn Kern, do not use pix-elated images, and so on. These are the basics of design, elements that help you create a basic design.



10. Direction :- An important aspect of many models is how the eye moves on the page, and the direction it takes - this is sometimes referred to as "flow". How does your eye move on the page? Do your readers know exactly where to look next? Does the direction of your eye take logic? However, instead of designing 100% of these models, try to adapt the flow and direction of your designs on a case by case basis. Simplykeep in mind that the attention gravitates to the top left of a page and that winds down from there.

Top 5 reasons why most mobile apps fail !

Posted by  Torus Infotech   Date  07/06/2017


After hearing the stories of so many android app developers we find the top five reasons why most mobile apps fail as a business.

Problem 1: making a complicated mobile app

As we know business website or web application work in a similar fashion- log in authentication, navigation between pages, search the resources they are looking for perform the preferred task. But mobile apps are very different; they are built with a limited set of tasks in mind and enable users to quickly perform these tasks while on the run with minimal navigation. If you build your mobile app like your website, you will not succeed.


Problem 2: underestimate resources

As we know that creating an enterprise mobile app costs approximately $300-$500 /year. It’s very tough task to find quality developers who can develops quality products as per our need in limited resources. Without quality skills and resources your app can’t be succeed in app market.


Problem 3: Poor app design

Poor app design is responsible for failure of a large number of apps. Well designed apps have certain characteristics in common- a proper interface, cool theme, proper navigation, and well placed buttons makes your app perfect.


Problem 4: Neglecting the Competition

Generally, mobile app startups are advised to focus on their own venture rather than getting distracted by the competition.


Problem 5: poor marketing strategy

Poor marketing strategy is one of the most important reasons of app failure in market. Most mobile app startups that fail often use all their resources in developing and executing the app, but completely miss the marketing process and fail to create a powerful, well-designed marketing plan across platforms.

Number of Websites on the Internet

Posted by  Torus Infotech   Date  08/01/2014
We have recently exceeded 1 billion websites (watch the total increase), a milestone which, according to our estimates, has been reached in September of 2014. Given the monthly fluctuations in the count of inactive websites, the 1 billion mark will need to be confirmed in the months ahead. From 1 website in 1991 to 1 billion in 2014

Curious facts

  • The first-ever website (info.cern.ch) was published on August 6, 1991 by British physicist Tim Berners-Lee while at CERN, in Switzerland.

  • The World Wide Web was invented in March of 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee

  • He also introduced the first web server, the first browser and editor (the “WorldWideWeb.app”), the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and, in October 1990, the first version of the "HyperText Markup Language" (HTML).

  • In 2013 alone, the web has grown by more than one third: from about 630 million websites at the start of the year to over 850 million by December 2013 (of which 180 million were active).

  • Over 50% of websites today are hosted on either Apache or nginx, both open source web servers. As of June 2014, Microsoft has got very close to Apache in terms of market share (only a 0.15% difference separates the two). If the trend continues, Microsoft could soon become the leading web server developer for the first time in history.
