"I just want a website that pops!" - A Web Developers Insight

Every business needs a website if they want to remain relevant, established and have an online presence. This is why, in today’s internet-driven world, the skills of web design and development alike is highly sought-after.

50% of all web design clients only know what they don’t want until it is designed for them. Most clients will say they just want a website that “pops”, or a “design that has flair and pizzazz”. What does a website that “pops” look like though? And how do we interpret such a vague brief and begin with the web design?

In many clients cases the website adventure is in rather unknown territory. How then would the clients accurately communicate their design needs to a developer, and what can be expected on the journey to launching an online footprint? The short answer is: effective communication from both parties. In setting all expectations upfront a site can be developed that portrays what the client wants, needs and furthermore can facilitate efficient workflow. Your websites success is always our biggest priority.

So what does your web developer need to kick start the process?
   1. We need to know who your target market is, as well as your deadline for the website
   2. Your company logo, in a high res format, and any other images needed for the website
   3. A brief company profile and short list of products or services offered
   4. Samples of any previous design work. A corporate identity or brochure will work wonders in guiding your developer into the corporate
       feel your company hopes to achieve
   5. Any websites that you really like and a quick guide explaining what you like about them, ie. navigation, colours etc. This will give an
       indication as to whether you require a clean corporate feel or something a little more creative.
