Website Design

Responsive Website Design

It's hard to imagine that in 2014 most small businesses do not have a website (75.2%(1) in fact do not have a website), it's even harder to imagine that those that do have a website have not even thought about going mobile. Here are three reasons your business website should already be responsive.

2015 web design trends

Here are the top 6 web design trends you should be thinking about for 2015.

1) Flat UI (User Interface)

    Gradients have gone the way of gif text, visitor counters, and flash videos. This shift to simple, clean, and clear graphics has taken off, and personally, I love it! As a minimalist, I enjoy the white space and clarity you see with these flat UI sites and I look forward to designing more of them. 

 

2) Telling a Story

how do I choose a color scheme

Whether you have a color in mind, have color in your logo, or don't have any idea, the color scheme of your website is very important. You could think of the colors as the clothes your website is wearing. You want your site to look its best, so it can make a great first impression. If you have color in your logo you should start arranging your color scheme around you logo.

Introduction Phase

One-page Website

What is a one page website?
A one page website is just that…one page. Each section of content is separated by a design element so viewers know they are on a new piece of content. One page sites are most effective when you have a few sections of content you wish to highlight; Home, About Us, Service/Product, Contact Us. When a viewer clicks on the navigation link (let's say About Us) at the top of the page it jumps or slides down to that section (the About Us section).

What is Responsive Web Design?
Simply put it's a web design approach that allows your website to re-size and re-shape to provide an optimal viewing experience for your customer. This means your website will render perfectly no matter the device a person uses. This also means you do not have to design and create a separate website for each device you want your site to work on.
