Tech companies make attractive clients for web designers. And when such an opportunity arises for you, you need to be aware that this niche has its own design rules. Knowing what they are will make your work easier, and your design efforts pay off.
In the event you’re not fully up to speed on these rules, we’ve spelled out some key ones. We’re also sharing a selection of tech-oriented pre-built websites to illustrate what visitors and tech company clients are looking for.

Four Design Trends You Want to Follow to Achieve Maximum Success
A well informed user will almost immediately recognize whether or not these designed trends have been adhered to. They are neither magic nor complicated. They simply make good sense.
Flat Icons – Skip the urge to create fancy or entertaining icons. Flat or minimalist icons will serve you best. Think “All Apple”.
When designing a tech-related website, fine touches make a difference.
Bold Colors – Bold colors have been around for a while, but they are by no means passé; and they are really hot for these types of websites. Fresh, clean, and dynamic design elements can make a statement. That applies to bold colors as well.
Data Driven Elements – It’s trendier to work on your own data visualization than to work with other software. Tech clients have a need to communicate various types of data on their websites, and be in a position to measure the effects of responsiveness, high contrast CTAs, flat design elements, and the like.
Typography – Poor choices of typography can lead to negative user experiences. Select font styles that not only support the brand, but also work on all screens. Not all do.
