No graphics software program bestows artistic taste or talent on its user,
good graphical design is essential for an attractive website. Knowledge & expertise
are required to produce attractive, clean graphics, and website graphics need
to be optimized to the smallest possible file size, prior to uploading to the
website server, to facilitate the fast loading of web pages when users view your
website on the Internet.
Directing visitors to where they need to go, quickly and efficiently can be difficult
and quite complex, especially on large websites over 15 pages or so. Good website
navigation design comes from experience & planning, not from good software.
Website navigation can be handled in several different ways, including buttons,
interfaces, drop down menus, embeding hyperlinks into images or simple HTML text
Java and Flash.
Basic websites are dramatically transformed by the use of dynamic program applications
such as Macromedia Flash, Java Script & Java Applets, adding web page animations,
small pop up windows, site search capabilities, website navigation & dynamis
text etc, the list is endless.
An outside company doesn't really understand your business like you do. Make
sure you communicate exactly what you need to achieve. The best website design
firms understand how to build Web marketing into the site design to make it search
engine friendly, to make the sales pages really sell, etc.
