Creating Lightboxes

Lightboxes pose a way to present additional information to your users after a certain event or trigger.

In the context of Bunting, good uses for these tools are to create brand awareness (such as promoting a featured item specifically), reiterating unique selling points (such as the number of 5 star reviews), gaining feedback via forms, and encouraging sales via promotions.

Designing captivating lightbox content

Good content is the foundation of the web, and this should also be applicable to your lightbox content.

We would recommend using the following lightbox guidelines:

  • Size of no larger than 900x450px.
  • Font Size of at least 16px.
  • Clear contrasting colours, especially where the close button is concerned, and any other calls-to-action.
  • Use either PNG or JPG for any background images.
