Web Design Services Overview: Searching for the Right Web Designer
You need a new web designer. Let’s talk about the kind of professional website designer you need.
I need a creative web designer with range…
We’ve done a little bit of everything. It all looks good and functions well. We’re happy about that.
…but I need a business-minded web designer who gets my niche.
Your design needs to be appropriate to your industry. Your look is our look.
Your site’s layout needs to be obvious to every first-time user. We get that.
Your website design needs to tie in with all your marketing materials in some way. At first glance, your visitors should know exactly whose site they’re looking at. (And just in case you’re looking for new marketing design—from logos to ad copy—we’re all over that, too.)
I need a professional web designer with taste and restraint.
Lots of cheap web designers cover up their minimal skills by cranking up the ANNOYING. You know the type: Flash loading screen epics, ferocious splash pages, and automatic music with elusive mute buttons. If they could talk your computer into firing bottle rockets at your face, they’d consider it.
But a web site isn’t a TV show or a Power Point. Users should be in complete control of just about everything, especially noise and motion. There’s a time and a place for flashy stuff… but what happens when a guest gives up on trying to find the SKIP INTRO link? Yep, they find a competing site designed by a grown-up.
A good web designer will do his or her dangedest to avoid design elements that act on their own or play by an arbitrary set of rules. Simply put, ENGINE embraces the highest web design standards, and our client’s users like it that way.
