Along with images, text is an important way to get information across on your small business website. So why make it hard to read? Unfortunately, many web designers come up with a colour scheme for their website which does not consider contrast and sacrifices the clarity of the text. Take a look below for what to avoid and what to bear in mind when choosing font styles and colours for your small business website.
Who got it wrong:
The text on this website is hard to read because it has been placed over a textured background. To put this right, the designer should have placed the text on a plain background or increased the contrast by using different coloured text.
Who got it right:
This website, created on the bOnline platform, has clear text without compromising on its striking background image. By using light coloured text boxes, the text remains clear and easy to read.
