Website design can be a complex space, but the process generally begins with a lot of questions. How many pages does a website need to be? Should it use a content management system? Does it need to be secure? How about using an e-commerce solution to sell products? Does it need a custom web development solution, or can we get by using Squarespace or even Wix? And when exactly is the best time to think about a website redesign?
Every web design project starts with a million questions and rightly so. Thankfully we are really, really good at answering questions.
“Modern websites need to straddle a line between visual beauty and functionality. In other words, people need to be drawn in by your online brand and once there they need to be able to do what it is that they came to do.”
In other words, people need to be drawn in by your online brand and once there they need to be able to do what it is that they came to do. This all starts with understanding what it is that people want to do and why they want you to do it for them, because without the customer there simply can be no commerce.
We work closely with our clients to understand their specific website design needs and the underlying design solutions to those problems. Sometimes it’s a simple process—5 pages, 1 form, and straight HTML. Maybe you need to discuss how to make your website more secure. Other times it’s a much more complex conversation. Yet, whatever the scope of the design problem, we are poised to conquer the design problem, no matter how wicked.
Rather, we believe in the ideals of partnership. Our years of website design experience means we have something valuable to offer, as do you thanks to a deep understanding of your business or field of practice. And that’s what we want to invest in. Without a good working relationship, we can’t make magic.
As we progress through a web design project, our goal is to come closer as a working team. We’re into lasting relationships and walks on the beach (although we don’t have to do those together). Our point is simply that the best way to get to the optimal solution is by working together—aligning our goals and working on a great solution—a website that really represents what you do.
