Website design should have a purpose and a goal behind it.  It is quite easy to create something that is visually appealing but it serves no purpose.  The purpose of your website must be ingenuously communicated through clever design that works to deliver the core message of your site.

Code is consciously ignored during the design phase.  This may be surprising to many who are not involved in design, especially when it is logical that the designer and programmer should ideally work hand in hand.  But when it comes to good webdesign, the designer takes precedence then the coding is done, even though it may take some time.

Decoration or design with no rhyme or reason tends to hinder rather than help a website.  Once the underlying content is valuable, the design aspect will take care of itself.

There is nothing really worse than a very beautiful website that leads me to thinking “where am I?” and “what next?”

What is navigation and what is content should be as clear cut as night an day.  Sometime what are ‘clickable’ text or buttons is not clearly laid out and when the cursor should change over ‘clickable’ text or links, it does not.

It really does not matter how the site looks, or what fancy script you tack on, if the navigation does not make sense and the website is not simple and user-friendly, there will be minimum time spent on your site.
The navigation through any website is the most valuable element.   Really do your utmost and try to make sure that the site content is organised into clear cut, sensible sections and that links are visually different than the regular content and that the navigation then reflects this.

Your company’s website represents your product, service or brand.  New users to your site will get a first impression of your service or product within mere seconds of arriving at your website. The visual appeal and the layout will play a great role in forming that impression.

Of course, your website seems to be very usable and you have labored to ensure that the content is great, but it is the visual artistic appeal that will evoke feeling in the new user. You want that evoked feeling of the user to be positive. It is the visual art that will be used to judge the quality of your website. This will happen within those first few seconds before the user has even started to browse around.

With this in mind, sit with your website design team and fashion a one-of-a-kind site that will set your website apart from the rest – a  website that will totally impress your visitors and hold their attention.

Web design is not art.  Web design is communication.

Web design delivers the core message of your site within seconds and acts as an interface between the user and that product, function or information.  Design does not stop at looking nice and placing function before form is key to ingenuous design.  When this is done, form enhances function.

Websites are so much better than they were about fifteen years ago, in the early 1990s.  Web designers have learned from their mistakes made in the early years and web design companies  have surely evolved.  With greater experience and greater knowledge of what works as opposed to what does not work, web design companies know that usability is the key to a website’s success.  It is necessary to have equal and healthy doses of design and function.

Web design is somewhat like architecture and, like architecture, web design needs to be beautiful, durable and usable all at the same time.

Small business website

December 27th, 2008

Congratulations! You have traveled the rocky path of setting up your own business.  It’s a small business.  It is your baby.  You have toiled over the bills and night and thought that by now, after 4 years, that you would have seen the profits coming in in larger sums.

Small business run out of a home garage have shot their owners to overnight successes by setting up a website.

Right now, the sale of your product depends on word of mouth and on the random walk-in customer.  You make your payments, pay your bills and are keeping your ‘head above water’ as they say.  But was bare ‘surviving’ your intention when you set up your biz?

Imagine that when you portray your business through a website, millions of users surf into your site, see your products.  Sales will be boosted.  Yes, people will be able to purchase off the website that is tailored with an e-commerce application that is super secure.

Websites are not for the big businesses only.  They also generate big returns for the small biz.

Keep Web Design in Mind

December 23rd, 2008

After the decision has been made to build a website the next step is to design your website.

Web design is an art and building websites without the thought process behind the design aspect, the reason for having the site in the first instance, will be defeated.

You see, the site will work, and work well, once the design aspect has been decided on.

The one driving force behind great web design is good usability. The aim is to keep users on the website for a maximum period of time.

Most have probably had the experience wherein we visit a website and it is a confused jumble. What do we do? We surf out as easily as we surfed in, thus, that company would have lost business through a badly-designed website.

Therefore, if the thought process behind the web design is usability, the website design will not be compromised, the user will not become frustrated and will spend the time on your site. Why risk this when the point is keeping users on the site?

The time and energy to get web design down pat is well worth every effort in the long run.

What do I need a website for?

December 11th, 2008

I sell cups. Yes, cups. Those vessels used for holding hot liquids for us to drink – those types of cups, all types of them.

Therefore, pray tell me why I would need a website?

My business has been steady and in this world of unsteady, that is good.

I pay the bills and we are comfortable.

My niece tells me a website would increase my sales worldwide. How can this be when I live in a small town? She speaks about someone in Europe wanting to buy a set of my teacups via the internet and all I would do is ship to him. What about my bills? If I am shipping to Europe, that is expensive postage. She tells me I will get paid via ‘e-commerce’ before I ship.

So, I try this website thing. A ‘webdesigner’ person comes and shows me things I don’t understand, but he takes photographs of my cups.

The website is done.

I hire my niece.

My cups are being sold in China. Now why would the Chinese want my cups? But they do.

I get orders from Belgium, Johannesburg, Peru and many other countries.

We now sell saucers and teaspoons, sugar bowls and cream pitchers…

Whether you’re a designer or small business owner who’s just starting to blog or update their website, you know how hard it is to create or even find the perfect set of icons.
