Importance of Web Design
Why is Web Design Important?
Website design has great importance, first impressions count… right? With a quality website design you can illustrate the key points of your business, and more importantly, provide a good user experience which is easy to navigate.
The design and unique features of the website such as special offers and calls to action allow your site visitors an easy path to buy into your services. With a good website design and layout, you grab the opportunity to add more productive leads to your web page.
Web Design Criteria
- Visual Design
- Mobile Friendly
Colours and Theme
For any online business, having a visually appealing and functional website is critical. Consider your website to be your virtual storefront; you wouldn’t like a cluttered, uninviting store where customers can’t get in or look at your shelves, and the same goes for your website!
The right look and functionality is essential. With a visually attractive site you are bound to gain visitors and thus bring in more work.
Before you buy our services, have a good look around at other websites’ design & layout structure; what colours you like and what the feeling of the website is. Do you want lots of white space? Does the website need bright or soft coloured layouts?
What Type of Website Do You Need?
For any business website we strongly advise using WordPress. They’re high-quality, with a variety of useful features and plug-ins that can and do improve the quality of website user experience (UX).
Plug-ins are a useful way of creating extra depth to your website; such as enabling document or video uploads and embedding. Some plug-ins are free and others have premium costs attached. Some are usually one-off payments, however for additional features some tie you into monthly payments. If you buy a website with us, the standard plug-ins will be automatically installed.
However, if you will be taking over the website once we’re developed it and you’re a complete novice, we can build the website on a different platform that requires little to no design or programme ability. There are a number of these platforms out there to choose from.
Our team will discuss your requirements and provide you a free quote, which is the best way to get an idea of the cost of our web design service.

What is the Layout?
In the basic sense the layout describes the structure and how the website flows. There is the layout of the full computer screen, tablet and smart phone. They all function very similarly except with some key differences.
The main difference is with mobile versions of websites. Very simply the screen is smaller and so the layout naturally changes.
With this in mind we layout all of our websites to cope with the demands of the fast paced user where up to 90% of all web views are on mobile technologies.
Who is the Layout For?
Any website that is designed by us will have the end user in mind. This is called the User Experience (UX) and is vital for gaining customers. If the design & layout is easy to follow and easy navigate then any potential customer will have a positive experience on your website. If the website is made difficult to navigate, the likelihood is that customers will have one look, and then leave.

How Much Does a Website Cost?
The costs of a website vary with several factors:
Website’s concept and style
What are the required integrations? (e.g. eCommerce)
The page count
Are images required or provided
Is content required or provided
If you currently have a website that needs to be updated or that hasn’t been adequately optimised the cost is often much cheaper.
