A website designer will offer clients a website that is as user friendly as it is beautiful and effective. They understand layout, trends, and often code special elements that set your digital presence apart. Your prospective web designer should have experience and a portfolio to prove it. Website designers may be involved in designing for a variety of industries, or specialize in niche topics such as weddings or construction.
A good designer will inquire about your likes, dislikes, aesthetic, the brand or the services you offer. In order to create your vision, it’s helpful to clue them in on any colors or inspiration you reference when imagining your dream site. Here is a list of things to be aware of when considering adding a designer to your new or revamped website efforts:
- Does the designer take time to get to know your business, desired aesthetic and ideas?
- Do you want your designer to specialize in the type of website you want?
- Have you researched the designer’s portfolio? Do you like their work?
- How many years of experience does your designer bring to the project?
- Does he or she provide a detailed estimate for the services you are seeking?
- How many edits are you allotted per page during the process?
It may seem like a lot of information to inquire about and give to your prospective designer, but it will save a lot of time and frustration later on. If your designer hasn’t taken these steps or your intuition tells you a given designer is not meshing well, take your time to shop around. A professional designer should be inquisitive, honest, and collaborative to make your vision come to life.
