Features of Good Web Design

Yesterday, while looking for content for reference to write an article, I came across a website that was an ideal example to be called a DISASTER!!!! Man….that site neither had a good web design nor an efficient layout; which brings me down to write this blog today! (wish whosoever designed that site would see this and take the advice!!!!) ;)

Well, we all know that a good website design that has vibrant colors and great graphics can catch the eye of the visitor immediately. But it is also essential to know that you don’t include colors that are not in hormony with the context of the website. Obviously, you can make a kids website in bright pink with animated characters floating around, but imagine designing a corporate website with the same features :D

Ok. Now that you agree to that ( I am pretty sure of that) I believe that you would also agree on the fact that generally the web site design must be such that all the web pages download quickly. Trust me..It would be a sure relief for the visitors to go through your entire site if the web design loads faster.

Well, you wouldn’t want your visitors to go blind every time they have to make an effort to read the text on your website… ;) So, make sure to chose readable fonts for your web pages and pleeeeease keep the font size to the minimum of 11-12 pixels. It would save your visitors from getting glasses after having read the entire content!!

Don’t tell me you expect all your website visitors to have the same kind of computer? Well, then why have a website design which is neither stretchable, nor works on every browser/computer/ operating system? I say it would be best to have a web design that is device independent and supports Cascading Style Sheets (hope you have heard about them). They would be more user friendly and make your visitors comfortable with your web site design.

Thats all folks!!! :)

The Beauty Of Static Websites

Yes, even though, static websites are considered to be an old form of website designing, they still look elegant and beautiful. There are a number of advantages attached to static websites that allow them to be a favorite of the corporate world. If you have an urgent need of a website to be created, a static website would be the most favorable choice. Why? I’ll tell you…. Read on..

For starters, static websites are easier to create. Not only would this serve your urgency purpose but would also ease the designer in creating a quick layout for you. Secondly, a number of static website design templates are available for free of charge on the Internet. So, all you would have to do is to pick up any of the static website templates and replace your content with the demo one. Voila you are all set to give a demonstrative website presentation.

Static websites also have an excellent SEO potential. This is because, static websites are picked up by web crawlers faster than dynamic websites. Web crawlers identify keyword rich content faster on static websites in comparison to dynamic websites. This is one of the benefits that pays in both the short and the long run. That is why, you would see that most of the top ten results displayed in Search Engines are that of static websites.

So, have you made your mind yet. I would suggest static website design any day, if you are looking for something created in a jiffy. Go ahead. Make a wiser decision.


Flash Intros that can become the lifeline of a Website

The truth is that your website must be a personal reflection of you as well as your business that you’ve worked so very hard to create. So, why would you have to settle for a basic, plain static website home page for your old and potential new customers to see?

I for one really enjoy visiting sites that have a Flash Intro Design. A movie in Flash that gives an introduction of the services being offered removes the antiquated impact of a website and grab the immediate attention of visitors. What I feel is that not only do they liven the environment but also give a high spirited feel to the visitor.

Trust me, having the same boring site for years might just result in boring your old customers whilst driving away your potential customers!!! This is where a Flash intro at the beginning of your website will keep your customers coming back for more!

As soon as the Flash and its animating characteristics of a website come into play on a site, the graphics and images instantly prove to give an aesthetic impression and keep site hitters like me and you dazzled enough to keep coming back. Have a look at the Mercedes site and you would know!!!


The Evolution of Corporate Websites

It might be hard to believe, but the truth is that corporate websites have been around since almost more than a decade now. It is but quite fascinating to see how Corporate Website designs have evolved over these years, from the initial days of magazine-style brochure-ware to the current date fad of two-way Web interfaces.

The top Corporate Websites have been on the trend to re-invent themselves after every couple of years. As a matter of fact, the best Corporate Websites have always been on the edge of pushing the boundaries of what the current date technology allows. The sole reason being the constant change in the Web design and its regular upgradation and adaption to technology in an evolutionary environment.

Inclusion of SEO and SMO techniques have transformed the look of Corporate websites from simple imagery displays to multimedia to textual content that can be read and picked up by Search Engines such as Google easily.

The maneuver of these corporate websites over the past ten years have gone through a number of alterations for iterations driven across by the marketing techniques and changing landscape. Not only have simple HTML coding of corporate website designs been replaced by CSS tableless designs but an urge to create a two-way dialog with the clients have also induced Corporate Website designs to breech the gap between the unique strengths of the Web.


Bespoke Web Designing: A Fresh Concept

Duane Michals once said “I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see.”

This quotation is absolutely true, especially in todays world, where a virtual presence matters more than the actual presence of a firm. This is where the significance of having a bespoke website designed comes in.

Though quite a new concept, Bespoke website designing has emerged to be one of the most essential elements that need to be implemented during the designing of a Search engine friendly website layout. A Bespoke Website Design focuses not just on the layout of information, the navigational structure but also on the clarity of function making the site pleasing to the eye and search engine compatible.

One of the most amazing feature of Bespoke designs is that they can take any website over and above the realm of sameness, give it a fresh new look as well as a newfangled approach to hit the bulls eye!!

Believe it,a Bespoke design that has been tactfully created can actually make waves for even the smallest of businesses.That’s why, although this technique has recently been introduced in the industry,its impact has unleashed a whole new world hope for attracting traffic from far and near.


The rising need for Web designers

It is almost funny, but with the Internet becoming one of the major forces in the marketplace and overpowering the entire industry, almost every businessperson; from charity organizations to even a cat owner, seems to be in the rat race for a web presence. As a matter of fact, almost $250 billion worth of services and goods are estimated to be traded over the Internet each year making the need of such people even more urgent.

The result of this need to create an attractive and enticing “net presence” have driven many towards hiring Website designers in major droves. That is why, Website designers have become the new breed of typesetters and graphic designers who choose the medium of the WWW to target audience that accounts to a whopping 45 million people worldwide!!

No wonder companies wish to employ Web designers who are able to capture the precious attention of this vast audience for advertising, brand awareness and various sales reasons. It is actually the Website designers who are responsible for the look, layout as well as the overall impact the site would have on the audience.

Trust me, Website Designers are not just anyone with an ability to upload graphics and Flash into a site. They are “Creators” who know just how to appeal the eyes of all as well as captivate the attention of the most important viewers: Mr. Yahoo and Mr. Google!!


Websites for Increasing Jewelry Business

Imagine a diamond studded starred onyx night sky with a pearly full moon swaying on its tip. This is the kind of feeling a stringlet made of precious crystals and pearled pendant oozes out over the wearer and the admirers.

Jewelery allows you to carry your world around with you. With the sapphire blue lake around your finger, the emerald green leaves around your neck, the citrine sunset dangling over your heart, Jewelry becomes your link to nature.

If you wish to define such ecstatic emotions through an online presence, then a Jewelry website would be the answer to all prayers. Not only would a website display your unique jewelry design but would also help you enamor more prospective clientele towards purchasing your jewels, thus escalating the sales of your jewelry business to the skies.

An online jewelry business through a good website that has been programmed ingeniously including the what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) features and functions like an E-commerce portal with online payment facilities would drive constant visitors towards your web site.

A Jewelry Store Website that perfectly depicts each and every curve of your crystals and establishes the color and spark of every gem that you sell would also pull together a reign of customers drizzling on your doorstep to buy your designer jewelry.

So, whether you choose to use jewelry website templates or build a new website to display and sell your jewelry, it would ecstatically boost your sales.
