Web Design Wednesdays
A Special Web Design Wednesday: Taking a Step Outside Our Walls
Similarly, in the each of the previous sixteen Web Design Wednesdays, we have addressed a different concrete feature, or lack thereof, that influences the value of a company's website. However, that said, what makes a "good website?" As I observe every day in the office of my Los Angeles website design company, there are many different answers to this question for many different types of clients and their respective industries. The process of optimizing a website for usability, visual appeal, and search engine optimization purposes is a comprehensive journey that delves beyond what looks and feels good to an individual designer.
Our team makes a year round effort to research our clients' targeted audiences and base our designs and content on what makes them feel at home when they visit a site, but even so there is always more to learn as each user is a little different. In the spirit of stepping outside of our proverbial "walls" and telling you what sets a given brand’s website apart from its competition, I want to hear your opinions on what you’ve found to be the best websites and the specifics on why they're the best. What makes them usable, visually appealing, informative, professional, etc. (you know the terms I always use)? You’ve listened to me, I want to hear from you. On that note, Chag Sameach!
