As the old saying goes, “the more things change, the more they stay the same”, especially with regards to web design. While technology, programming, hardware, software, and graphic techniques may change, good design does not. Think I’m wrong? Well, companies like Google and Apple happen to agree! With that said, here are my 10 top web design tips I recommend, now and always:
#1. Design With Faster Load Times in Mind:
There is nothing worse than web pages and blogs that hang when you try to load them. While newer technology helps to reduce and relieve some of these issues, it really boils down to the web designer and how they manage their graphics and content.
As a designer, developer and business consultant, there is no greater thrill than the re-design of a site you originally created. It gives the artist a chance to not only re-create an image or concept, it allows he/she the ability to perfect the new work and to bring new excitement to the business model you have already come to know.
One of my favorite projects has been working on Mt. Si Coffee Roasters, located in Washington. Company owner, Greg Abajain, created a dream and made it a reality. He is an inspiration to business owners because he has managed to grow this thriving business during a difficult economy, which is no easy task! Make sure to visit Mt. Si Coffee Roasters at http://mtsi.co or http://mtsicoffeeroasters.com. Whatever you do, make sure to try their magnificent coffee, simply the best around!
Singer, songwriter and Grammy Award winner Deniece Williams is famous for her hit song “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” from the original Footloose movie soundtrack. She performed with Stevie Wonder in the 1970s before branching out on her own. Denice has been a client since 2011. In a remarkably short time, my team and I built and branded her website and created a very successful marketing campaign drawing many thousands of web viewers eager to find out what Ms. Williams is doing today. Her site continues to get positive attention and is expanding and growing. You can visit her site at http://deniecewilliams.com
So… you’re considering hiring a business consultant. You’ve been thinking about it…. a lot. Deep down, you know your business has some issues, quite possibly, serious ones. Perhaps you’ve had the stark realization you may not be able to address these issues alone. But you’ve been asking yourself if you can afford to hire the help. The question is, can you afford not to?
