Website Design & Development
Website design trends are continually evolving. Mobile devices are in everybody’s pocket, if not their hand, and the industry has become much more focused on the mobile market. What this means for websites is that individual pages often contain more information reducing the need to load multiple pages, and navigation bars are being optimized for both the finger and the mouse. “Flat designs” have been in vogue in recent years, as they emphasize the scroll-able rather than them click-able. While the functionality is not considerably changed – just optimized for a multitude of devices – most websites created before the smartphone wasn’t built to be mobile-friendly.
The mobile state-of-mind is all about convenience. If more people are connecting to wireless internet with their phones, then their browsing experience benefits from fewer clicks, less load time, less bandwidth needed, lower data usage, etc. There are other benefits of going mobile-friendly, and you can read about them elsewhere on our site. This is where website development is headed, and Digital Web is adept at creating customized, responsive websites. “Responsive” refers to a website’s ability to seamlessly adjust its content to fit whatever size screen it appears on.
Recent web design trends have also favoured a heightened level of interactivity. There are many creative ways to incorporate photography, video, and other multimedia content that allow users to engage with your website. Imagery and interactivity breathe life into your site and differentiate it from other sites that don’t strike the appropriate balance. Storytelling can also be accomplished through such interactive content. Pairing excellent content marketing with compelling, personalized imagery the best ways to show your target audience who you are.
Any company website should aim to be the primary hub of that company’s web presence. Your site is the best way for customers to find you, especially those who don’t already know you exist. This hub serves the purpose of connecting all your digital efforts; providing a handy place to feature all of your vital company information, your brand storytelling, social media, and anything else you want people to see. Having a Facebook Company Page is proactive, but it doesn’t quite stand-in for all the roles a useful website can play. Google searches have replaced phone books, and your website is your listing. It grants your business a baseline legitimacy the same way print ads used to years ago.
Integrating your social media and website improves your overall user experience (UX), and extends your brand in a way that a social media alone is unable to.
