How to build an engaging website that isn't image-focused?

Recommended Posts

Designing a website with a lot of text-based information can be a challenge as big chunks of text can be off-putting to the reader. Often, we rely on imagery to draw the users' attention or help communicate a message. But what if we don't have or want to rely on imagery?

What are some practices you've used or seen that create an engaging and informative display of textual content? Share in the comments below!

you have to use the attracted font style and give the appropriate headings. Further If you put image also then it will be more attracted because as per human nature, a human is more understanding when they are seeing.

Well considered Typography is a must, choose a good font pair.

Create a good hierarchy with your headings so you can easily guide users through the page. Lists are good to break up text and they make content scannable.

Use coloured sections, don't go overboard though use light neutral colours that don't distract but create obvious sections and again help lead the user through the page.

Don't be afraid of whitespace, if in doubt use more. Make some room for the content to breath. This is a big one for me and really helps users move through a page as it feels less crowded and messy.


Here is a recent site I created for a Law firm which has minimal text



Good luck 🙂
