What makes a great website?

1. Clear purpose – Make sure you know what your site is for, and importantly, not for
2. Clear audience – Identify who your site is aimed at. Do you know what your audience looks like? What they enjoy? Do for work? How old they are? What other sites they use? All of this information, and more, is crucial for building the best website.
3. Straightforward navigation – Is it easy to work out how you get around your site?
4. The right style – Your site should be unique and distinctive, whilst still appealing to your users
5. High quality imagery – If your images aren’t good, your site won’t look good, either
6. The right fonts – Make sure your font matches the general style, and is legible
7. The right words – Your site can look amazing, but if none of the words make sense, design won’t matter

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

1. Describe your business in a few sentences.
2. Do you currently have a website? If so, what is/isn’t working for you?
3. What are your goals for this project?
4. Who is your target audience?
5. What specific features do you want on the site?
6. How can we avoid failure?
7. Who are your main competitors?
8. What makes you different from your competitors?
9. What’s the scope of the project?

What do you love most about your job?

What I like the most is the ability to create something amazing and how that ability continues to grow year after year. The web is constantly changing and improving, it is always growing. What is now possible to build in the browser wasn't even thinkable 10 years ago.

Just look at what is possible. It is stunning. It is encouraging and daunting at the same time. That is what I love about this field.

Also, as time goes on, the web will continue to be more and more a part of peoples every day lives. The chance to have an impact on the world grows every day.

What inspired you to start your own business?

1. Flexibility. Work your own hours.
2. Call the shots. Nobody else is going to set the rules. You are.
3. Set your own deadlines. No more last-minute rushing unless you want to do it.
4. Sell how you want to sell. Online? In person? Inbound? Outbound? It’s your call.
5. Create your own environment. You can set the formality and culture of your organization.
6. Pursue your passion. You can do what makes you happy.
7. Create something from scratch. Watch your organization grow from start to finish.
8. Meet new people. Network with other entrepreneurs and professionals.

How much does web design cost? This is something that can be incredibly difficult to put a figure on due to the nature of the service. There are also differences based on whether you are looking to work with a freelancer or a web design agency, and also whether you need a large, complicated site or something more simple.

We can help you to connect with the right designer to suit your needs. A clear idea of what you need, and how many pages and features are required, will be influential when it comes to pricing. This will help you to get an accurate quote for web design.

These two terms may seem like they are used interchangeably but they are two different things. A designer will be focused on the visual and creating a UI to suit the user, whereas a web developer is usually focused on the actual core of the website, making it function and using coding to enable it to do what it is supposed to.

When working with a web designer, if you want the whole package of a fully finished and functioning website, check that this is something they can offer before you employ their services. Make sure you have understood if they are offering web design or development, or both.

  • Responsive - A responsive web page design means that the site is viewable on a number of devices. The design automatically sizes to the screen and the designer doesn’t need to make formats for different devices and desktops.

  • Liquid or Fluid - This is a style of design that will shrink or stretch to the shape of the browser, and the page will look enlarged or shrunk, rather than items being rearranged. The size of the items in the design alter in relation to one another depending on the browser being used.

  • Fixed design - Fixed pages do not alter according to the browser automatically. On some devices such as tablets this can make it harder to see the content as you need to scroll around the page or pinch the screen in order to zoom in on sections. Though it is sometimes essential, fixed design is becoming less common.

Whether you are working with a freelancer or a big agency, they will have a portfolio for you to view. This allows you to see other, similar projects they have worked on and decide if they have the skills you need.

There are a number of web design certifications and they may be happy to share any they have attained, but there isn’t one standardized industry body.

If you are worried about a designer’s credentials you can also check their feedback from other clients, which you can view on their Bark profile.

Should you work with a freelancer or an agency? This is one of the decisions you need to make when looking to plan a web design project.

Working with a freelance Web Designer
This may be an option that can save you money. Freelancers are often able to charge less as they don’t have the same overheads as an agency.

Working with a Web Design agency
Web design agencies may have a bigger set of skills to draw upon than a freelancer as they will usually have a number of staff and designers working for them. They may also be able to show you a bigger portfolio, but you can expect to pay more when using an agency.
