Web designers’ goal is to create a visually appealing design for your approval. Most creative web design agencies work similarly, as this allows for the complete artistic talent of the designer to be used, and full use of the imagination of not only the designer but also the client. Once a design is approved, a developer steps in to convert this to a web format in standards compliant code. This may include implementation of a Content Management System (CMS), and generally involves some mild Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as well as cross-browser compatibility. Your brand new creative web design is all ready for the World Wide Web once this is done. You need to choose an innovative web design company that can fulfill all of your needs from creating a website which suits your brand image and captivates the user, to something which will navigate easily, rank well on search engines, function the same across your entire user-base, and ultimately lead to more conversions in your market. The main things to keep in mind when choosing a creative web design company is their design to the implementation process, their cost, their portfolio, and ultimately the level of service you can expect. I am an online consultant, and can help you should you have trouble finding an agency, or even if you would like me to assist in assessing another agency ability to meet your needs to come up with a creative web design that will fit your needs and help in squashing your competition.
Flashy Pages: unwanted Distractions
These “website introductions” are typically short Flash-based movies that showcase the web designer’s flash design skill set, yet offer the web using nothing but a distraction. The main goal of any website design should be to either deliver the web user what they want or to get the web user to act.
Banner Advertisements: Less Is More
When it comes to the strategic placement of banner advertising, the old proverb “less is more” needs to be applied to web design. Another tip is to surround your banner advertisements with as much useful content as possible; this will also make the space more appealing to potential advertisers.
Navigation: Is the Important Key for Property Managers
Property owners can choose to invest thousands in web design, logo design, flash design, splash pages, funky animations and a whole host of other aesthetic goodies to make the site look fantastic, but if web users cannot navigate around the site to consume the content or purchase the housing services, then the whole website fails to achieve its goals. In web design when it comes to designing effective navigation, it’s best to keep it as simple as possible. Once again, web designers will often go overboard and design navigation menus that include flash animations, multi-tiered dropdowns and a whole host of other unnecessary additions that only work to distract the user, instead of helping letting property management firms navigate around the website.
