Web design is the designing and graphical presentation of content shown on the Internet in the form of Web sites. It also includes other Web applications using many different forms of media.
Our designers at Web Management will create a strong brand for your company by designing a custom built website tailored to your company’s specific needs. This ensures that all corporate colours and logos needed are used within the website design.
Web Design is the process of collecting ideas, and visually arranging and implementing them, guided by certain principles for a set purpose. Web design is a similar process of creation, with the intention of presenting the content on electronic web pages. The end-users can then access through the internet with the help of a web browser.
Web design uses many of the same key visual parts as all types of design such as:
Layout: First of all this is the way the graphics, ads and text are arranged. In the web world, a key goal is to help the view find the information they seek at a glance. Furthermore this includes maintaining the balance, consistency, and integrity of the design.
Colour: The choice of colours depends on the purpose and clients; it could be simple black-and-white to multi-coloured design. Therefore showing the personality of a person or the brand of an company, using web-safe colours.
Graphics: Graphics can include logos, photos, clipart or icons, all of which enhance the web design. For user friendliness, these need to be placed appropriately, working with the colour and content of the web page, while not making it too congested or slow to load.
Fonts: The use of various fonts can enhance a website design. Most web browsers can only read a select number of fonts, known as “web-safe fonts”. Thus your designer will generally work within this widely accepted group.
Content: Content and design can work together to enhance the message of the site through visuals and text. Written text should always be relevant and useful. Therefore not confusing the reader and to give them what they want so they will remain on the site. Content should be optimized for search engines and be of a suitable length, using relevant keywords.
As a very small business with a limited budget, but by the nature of our business have the need for a very good web site, the choice of who to use for our new site was crucial. I commissioned WM-UK to re build my web site in such a way that i could add and amend content easily and without compromising the design element that had been approved. The look of the site had to stay the same even with my clumsy and limited working knowledge. Also, as photographers the images on the site needed to be the key element in the design and for ease of use in amending and adding to the collection. I now have a portfolio that is easily divided into the different areas of expertise and browsed by potential clients simply and most importantly, quickly. This has been so successful that the site is now twice the size it was when I started and has been responsible for a significant increase in business, paying for itself many times over. We now have clients in areas that we would never have considered reaching in the past. In view of this, I never have any hesitation in recommending WM-UK to anyone who asks regarding ours or their own web sites.
