Establishing a strong online presence is imperative for law firms looking to stand out from their competition. Your law firm’s website is often a potential client’s first impression of your firm, so creating an engaging, professional online experience is essential. One way to convey information and captivate visitors is to use visual dividers.

Visual dividers are more than just a decorative element on your website. They are crucial to breaking up content, guiding the reader’s eye, and enhancing the overall visual appeal of your online presence. Incorporating visually appealing dividers lets you communicate your brand identity effectively, highlight important information, and engage visitors.

Your law firm can utilize many types of visual dividers to elevate its online presence and engage clients. This article will discuss visual dividers and explore five examples of designs that can turn visitors into clients.

What are Visual Dividers?

A visual divider is an element or layout component that separates elements or content by grouping or sectioning the page into different parts. Visual dividers enhance the visual appeal of your website and help organize content. As a result, users can easily navigate your website and encourage them to explore your page further. 

5 Examples of Visual Dividers That Engage Clients

Let’s look at some unique examples of visual dividers you can use on your website to engage clients and potential clients.

1. Spacing

Adequate spacing between elements on your website ensures clarity and readability. Whitespace is a visual divider that helps create space between content sections, preventing your page from looking overcrowded and letting information stand out. Strategically incorporating whitespace on your website allows your visitors’ eyes to quickly find what they are looking for without feeling overwhelmed.

The New Yorker is an excellent example of a website that utilizes whitespace to break up content. There is ample space between sections, making concentrating on each specific section easier.

2. Engagement

Visual dividers are pivotal in guiding the user experience and encouraging visitor engagement. Whether using subtle animations to draw attention to important content or an interactive element to encourage visitors to explore your website further, visual dividers can keep them actively involved.

In Pieces is a website that encourages engagement from the start. When you enter the website, an animation leads to a CTA to explore the exhibition. After you click the button, the words on the screen transform into the first animal they discuss. From there, the site is very interactive as you scroll through animal species and learn more about how these animals are endangered.

3. Design

The credibility and professionalism of your law firm are reflected in your website design. Enhancing the visual appeal of your website and communicating a sense of professionalism can be established with visual dividers. Whether using sleek lines and borders or custom illustrations, you can reflect your brand identity and instill confidence in visitors that your law firm is trustworthy and reputable.

Oxford Properties’ website communicates from the start the company’s goal of being a high-end commercial real estate investor, asset manager, and business builder. It is sleek and easy to navigate, consistently instilling professionalism in their work.

4. Branding

Consistent branding is vital to establishing a solid identity for your law firm and creating recognition among clients. You can use visual dividers to reinforce your brand identity and convey your firm’s values and principles. Consistently using branded colors, fonts, or images and incorporating elements of your brand into visual dividers helps create a cohesive experience for visitors and strengthens their connection to your law firm.

Perrine’s Wine Shop’s website is an excellent example of how consistent branding can create a more cohesive visitor experience. They have consistently used their brand colors and fonts throughout the website and incorporated on-brand images.

5. Calls-to-Action

Calls to action (CTAs) are essential to guide website visitors toward a desired action, such as contacting your law firm or signing up for a consultation. Visual visual dividers can strategically draw attention to your CTAs and encourage meaningful interaction. Whether you use bold typography, contrasting colors, or eye-catching animations, incorporating visual dividers around CTAs that make them more visually appealing makes them more prominent and increases the likelihood of conversion.

You can see on the Live Richer Academy website how the CTAs are in a color that contrasts with the rest of the website. Along with a contrasting color, her CTAs tell visitors exactly what she wants them to do in a way that makes them want to click on the button to learn more.
