Make sure your header still feels like a part of your site

May 4, 2020

When it comes to header design, I’ve often seen sites where the header is just a page-wide element stuck to the top of the page. This can work, but if you’re going for this strategy, make sure the header still feels like a part of the page. If it has a different style from the page below it, it can unintentionally distance itself from the page. 

If this happens, people will end up not seeing it; they block it out, like the browser’s URL bar above it. To avoid this, make sure the colors don’t stick out too much from the rest of the page, and that there’s a sense of transition from the header to the hero.
