When it comes to Web and Graphic Design, there are numerous aspects to take into account, but at the end of the day it can start with one great (and often simple) idea.
Here’s our Big 5 of website design principles:
- Conceptual Web Design
creating mock-ups of your design to follow your corporate identity, usually supplied to client in .JPG format
- Theme (or Website Template)
the look and feel once your concept design is programmed in HTML and CSS (it’s also possible to buy ready-made themes/templates online)
- HTML 5
the language web designers use to program websites (Hyper Text Mark-up Language)
Cascading Style Sheets, used to style HTML elements on your web pages.
- Domains & Hosting
all websites need a website address (URL or Domain) and space on the Internet to store the website’s web pages (a.k.a. website hosting)
Whether it’s just a ‘Landing Page’ to begin with, or a fully featured content-managed dynamic website using a database and a shopping cart, your business will certainly benefit from a solid technical foundation and quality design.
Adapt or Die
Ensuring that your site is responsive in design ensures the broadest audience possible. With the rise of smartphones (110% penetration with phones becoming more and more Internet enabled), and increased internet usage (around 11% of total population) in South Africa, it’s just going to become more and more important. These days we like to design responsive websites, so that it works on mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers.
Graphic Design – A Lasting First Impression
What does good design do for you?
- Creates trust
- Nurtures brand loyalty
- Sends a clear brand message (customers will know if it’s a match immediately)
- Easily consistent throughout all your media (web, print, video/TV)
- Make it easier to sell an already good product or service
High quality design is a key piece of a business’ visual strategy and paying particular attention to detail at the outset will have a real impact on the success of every online presence or campaign.
In the online space, it’s only the first impression that counts. Much like the dust cover of a book, no one will pick it up if it doesn’t look interesting… and neither would you.
