Marketing 101: What is the rule of thirds? | MarketingSherpa Blog

Marketing 101: What is the rule of thirds? | MarketingSherpa Blog | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
The rule of thirds is one of the first principles that all graphic designers, videographers, photographers and other creative roles learn. It’s a basic guideline for framing and image composition that results in the viewer seeing a balanced, more naturally flattering image.

To apply the rule, take your image and divide it into three parts vertically and again horizontally (it should look similar to a tic-tac-toe board.)

The rule states that the audience’s eye is naturally more drawn to the areas of the image nearest the intersection points. So, when you’re designing an image for a landing page, a social post, a PowerPoint slide, or even if you’re shooting a video, be sure to put the most important pieces of your image near these intersection points.

Hacking web design with neuroscience: 5 ways to influence how users see your website - EyeQuant

Hacking web design with neuroscience: 5 ways to influence how users see your website - EyeQuant | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Hack #1: Visual simplicity (de-cluttering your design)
Follow our Simple 3-Step Process for Decluttering your Website, which includes tips for:

  • cutting back on unnecessary text,
  • stretching the page vertically by adding more white space, and
  • replacing "busy" imagery.

Hack #2: Luminance Contrast

Luminance refers to the intensity or perceived "brightness" of a light, or in this case, the brightness of a color used on your website. The idea that bright colors attract attention isn't new, but here's the thing: our data suggests it's the contrast in brightness that really matters - particularly when it comes to text and background colors. 

 

Hack #3: The Pop-Out Effect (Color)

We've found that the effect of luminance contrast is greater than the pop-out effect, but understanding both effects can help you determine the optimal color scheme. A good rule is to use a color that is high in luminance contrast but doesn't appear frequently on the page. That means:

  • No "ghost buttons" (more on that here)
  • Don't use your primary brand color to emphasize content
  • It can help if headlines, key value propositions, and calls to action are a different color from the rest of the text on the page.

Hack #4: Center-Left Spatial Biases

Many consultants claim that users scan/read pages in an F or Z-Shaped Pattern, but our data suggests those rules of thumb aren't reliable. We analyzed scan-phase eye tracking data from 99 websites (each one viewed by 46 people), and there is a center-left spatial bias.

Hack #5: Using Lines & Edges

You should avoid obnoxiously large text, but the data also suggests that if you want to increase the amount of attention going to your headline (or other text), you're better off increasing font weight (boldness) than font size. You should also consider edge density when selecting imagery. Images containing areas of high image density are more likely to distract users. Be careful with images that contain patterns or high-density backgrounds (trees, grass, rows of windows, etc).

CYDigital's insight:

Very smart guidance on website visuals. When you click-through, the article provides terrific examples

What is Neuro Design? | MarTech

What is Neuro Design? | MarTech | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

"Neuro Design is a new and growing field that applies insights from the mind sciences to help craft more effective designs. These insights can come from two main sources:

  • The general principles of Neuro Design best practices that have been derived from academic research on the human visual system and the psychology of vision. These include things like which areas of our visual field are more sensitive to noticing visual elements, thus helping designers compose more effective images.
  • Design and marketing agencies, as well as brand owners, are increasingly commissioning their own neuro research to assess specific design options. For example, if a brand is thinking of completely refreshing their packaging design, they may want to test several design variations, using consumers to assess which shows the most potential."
