Ideas and Solutions by 1 Day® TIDBIT-C Content Type
The 1 Day® TIDBIT-C Method is our silly memory device to help spark ideas for web designers when they are designing a mockup or style tile. Say it out loud. It sounds cuter than it looks!
Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the details of the design when you are focused on the layout or content. When you feel stuck on a design and don’t know what to do next, take it one tidbit at a time, see?
Groan. I know, I know.
T = Typography
I = Imagery
D = Dividers
B = Buttons
I = Iconography
T = Textures
C = Color
You don’t need to emphasize all of the TIDBIT-C elements in one design — in fact, doing so would result in a design that is way too busy.
So the first step in using the 1 Day® TIDBIT-C Method is determining which of the elements should be dominant. Will it be a color-forward design? Will you spend some time creating the perfect background pattern or texture? Or is the website all about the photos?
Your choices will largely depend on the Client, the brand you are working with and the assets available. For example, if the photography is bad or nonexistent, you might choose to go heavier on the cool iconography or divider graphics. Or maybe you focus on distinctive typography.
