What is good Web design? And why choose me?

If you are in the process of finding a designer to build your website then hopefully this article will make you aware of my quality and high standards.

I am passionate about design and only the best work will do.

There are many companies out there who say they are 'design' companies, yet their portfolio lacks variety, creativity, uniqueness and user-friendliness. The portfolio is one of the most important areas to look at, as you will obtain an idea of style and quality from it. You will also sense whether or not they can do a good job for you.

I always:

  1. design for the client by creating a unique looking website that matches their brand identity and business and is consistent throughout.
  2. make sure the content is laid out well and is easy to read.

The quality of the HTML is also essential. I build all websites to the latest recommended Web standards to minimise any errors or code warnings. This results in clean code which not only ensures your website works correctly in all browsers and is search engine friendly, but ensures it performs well in the Search Engines.

But, a professional looking and well built website are just two important factors of good Web design. Usability is key - there is no point having a website if users can't find what they are looking for. I ensure that navigation menus are consistently placed throughout the site and links and call to actions are clearly marked and concise.
