Balance out the content

Sep 3rd, 2014

Giving your banner a festive theme shouldn’t clutter it. It should be simple as well. Use the available space in an attractive way. The background image you use should have room to integrate your holiday message without making it difficult to read. When designing your banner you might experiment with different styles, but don’t mix them together. Choose a single design. Avoid conflicts like using a photograph and a cartoon or black and white in one area and neon colors in another.

Keep your message short and concise. Don’t fill the banner completely with text. Create a catchy phrase that will attract holiday shoppers. Shoppers expect to get offers during the holidays. So, highlight special offers. It should stand out and be the first thing your users are attracted to. Things like “Buy 1 Get 1”, “50% Off”, “Free Shipping”, “Gift Wrapping”, “Holiday Blowout”, etc…
