What is website design
In today’s digital world, first impressions are vital and outstanding designs are a major key to success. Users enjoy visiting websites that are aesthetically appealing and easy to navigate. Outdated websites, slow loading plug-ins, hard to read text, eye-straining color schemes; all of these are bad for your brands image, and could potentially run you out of business.
I strive to make the web better by designing and developing websites that are crisp, beautiful, and intuitive. I am constantly improving my own knowledge, and perpetually rebuilding my own project websites. Through all of these changes, I have spent a considerable number of hours using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create logos, background images, modify photographs, and build wire frames of websites.
Why hire a website designer?
Google prioritizes responsive websites
While it may not seem like it on the surface, Google makes sure top search results are mobile-friendly. Since people use mobile devices more over desktops that makes sense. In fact, at least 82% of people tend to use their phones for business activities. This includes buying and selling products. These two facts combined mean there is more money to make on ads on mobile-friendly sites. It makes sense that Google promotes businesses which convert potential users into customers. All it would take is a few adjustments so you become part of the top results.
Design is 94% of the first impression
First impressions matter, and that principle is even more important when it comes to web pages. If you encountered a website that looked difficult to navigate, you’d likely leave it. Like the 94% of others who say they didn’t trust a website because of its design. The same goes for a web page that doesn’t adjust to fit on your tablet. So much hinges on the design of your website that it can turn-off potential clients. It can even drive you further down a search results page. It can hurt the opinion people have about your business through word of mouth. Only, in this case, word travels faster because it’s one tweet away.
Higher quality than self-built
Sure, there are plenty of free website design templates out there. But they’re basic, to say the least. You can’t really expect to create a top-of-the-line, unique website with one of these cookie-cutter tools. A website will require several features, including images, headers, plugins, and codes. All of this may sound like gobbledygook to you if you have no information technology/ programming background. But it’s all second nature to professional Web designers.
