Step 2: Select a Design for Your Website

There are two main aspects of design to consider: overall appearance and functionality. Regarding overall appearance, you should think about the colors, fonts, images, and layouts that best convey the personality and purpose of your business. Regarding functionality, you need to decide on the features and tools you would need for your website, such as contact forms, slideshows, and more. It is a good idea to do some research on websites similar to yours to get a better idea of what you want your design to look like.
