Fresh, creative, minimalist, innovative ... What's your style?
The invention of the internet made global business a reality, and now nearly every company, from enormous conglomerates to small family owned companies, have a web presence. A well designed website is an invaluable tool for the success of a business in today’s web-based economy. Read on to learn more about web design and how it can make or break your business.
What is Web Design?
Web design, in a nutshell, is creating a functioning and attractive website to provide information, facilitate the sale of goods and services, or basically point the visitor in the right direction. This includes content creation and image selection, as well as the creation and implementation of interactive media such as games, videos, or online shopping carts.
The point of web design is to create an easy to use, easy to navigate website for your visitors to use. If it’s hard to find even the most basic information or takes forever to load, your visitors are going to click the little red X in the upper right hand corner and be done with it. User friendly is, quite literally, the most important phrase here.
Why do I need Web Design?
The simple answer is because it is impossible to function in today’s world as a business or in many cases as an individual, without a solid web presence. The world is more connected than ever, and that is all due to the saturation of the internet and its various connected devices.
By using web design to create a functional website, you are in essence securing your place in the world. 30 years ago, manual networking and traditional advertisements like billboards and phone books were the only way to get your business out there, and that was usually limited to a localized geographic area. Today, you can hand your website, your business, or your message to millions of people around the globe instantly. But you can’t do that without a strong web presence, and you can’t create a strong presence without web design.
Who Needs Web Design?
Anyone who has a website needs web design skills or services. It is entirely possible to build your own website, as long as you have at least moderate skills in programming languages like HTML/CSS, Java, and other similar programs, as well as things like Search Engine Optimisation. For many people, it’s much easier to contract out their web design needs.
What can we do for you?
20 years ago, web design was easy. You could sign up for Angelfire or Geocities and use one of their thousands of predesigned templates. Add your text, upload a couple of images, and you were good to go. Now, it’s gotten much more complicated. At Tall Fox, our goal is to help you create the most user friendly website possible, as well as using tools like Search Engine Optimisation and Pay per Click advertisements to help bring in hits. If you’re looking to build a website (or your stuck in the 90’s with Geocities), contact us today to find out what Tall Fox can do for you.
