Word of advise on web design, marketing and logo design

Web Design Clarity & Simplicity

We believe that a viewer should not have to go through heaps of text or cluttered information to understand the purpose of a design piece. This is where layout skills and typography are paramount. In a nutshell:

  1. Selecting a photo or image that says literally a 1000 words is possible.
  2. Choosing a colour scheme is always a challenge but with The 'M' Media its usually a best suitable choice.
  3. The 'less is more' principle should be observed in most cases.

We create designs that convey your message in an instance.

Our Web Design Guide

The web design field is always evolving due to constant development of technology. Scripts, languages and technology development are pushing browser vendors to update their products, whether it be Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera or Safari, to mention just a few. Changes in technology facilitate more fashionable, good looking and well designed websites. Having said that, a professional web designer or web programmer will take advantage of these changes. Employing knowledge, experience and talent, he/she will create a website that exceeds your expectations and holds your customers’ interest!



Design Process

The design process for a professional website is shown on the diagram below. The main focus of the web design is to create interaction whether by purchasing goods and services, acquiring members or involving visitors in the website activities.

  1. The web design process begins by collecting content information from a client. Here the copy writing takes importance as it is central to the intellectual setting of the whole web experience. At this stage, the text will also be looked at from a marketing perspective and optimized/edited in a way to suit the Google algorithm for best ranking.
  2. Then the text fills the pages, being supported by graphics, pictures, video, flash presentation, 3D graphics and other multimedia design elements.
  3. Here the coding and programming will be implemented to build navigation and interactivity into your site. This important element is invisible to the website visitor.
  4. After the website creates a harmonious ensemble, it is tested and further optimized for Google algorithm for best ranking. This is coupled with keyword search and meta tags optimization. All this is called Search Engine Optimization, commonly called SEO.
  5. Furthermore all graphics and elements needs to be properly named, described and titled. A site-map has to be generated and text must be organized to best suit the search engines’ readability. Backward links also have to be created.
  6. Additionally PPC (Pay Per Click) and AdWords campaigns are created to further increase traffic on the website.



Choosing a professional web designer

While reading pages on this website you may realize that having your website designed by a professional web designer will return your investments exponentially. Choosing the right web designer can save you money by avoiding wasted time and unsatisfactory results.

Your site represents YOU, so do not compromise on quality. There are several things you need to consider when choosing a web designer:

  1. A web designer's web portfolio should show at least 10 websites you like. From there you will be able to see his design style and skill level.
  2. A web designer's experience. You need to determine if they have produced websites similar to what are looking for, how many years they have been in business and what training/education they have. There are talented self-taught web designers, but you are taking some risks, since their abilities are not certified and they have no ethical/legal accountability, since they are not recognized by any professional body. Formal training and industry recognition guarantees you consistent quality and ethical practice from initial contact to final delivery. Generally, a minimum of 5 years experience is desirable.
  3. A web designer's ability to communicate clearly and understand what you are saying. Conducting a phone conversation or face-to-face talk about your project will give you an indication of whether or not you are comfortable working with them.
  4. A web designer should be able to bend to your ideas, yet make intelligent suggestions to improve your site’s content and design.
  5. A web designer should have genuine testimonials – from real people - on their website! This can easily be determined by going to their websites and reading the footnotes by the webmaster. You should be able to contact them using those footnotes. If the contact is not available, you have reason to doubt that the testimonial is genuine.



Web design fees

Web designers may charge as low as $20/hour for starters, $60-$90/hour for small size offices or freelance and $200/hour or more for a large web design firm. It all depends on their experience, overhead, the technology involved and the quality of service. Why so much? The hourly fee reflects administrative costs, office space, marketing/advertising, on-going learning/research among other considerations. The amount quoted should sound realistic.

Choosing a web design

There are verities of website types:

  • commercial
  • informative
  • educational
  • personal
  • fun
  • etc.

Choose a design style and system that best suits your website purpose. Remember that what you personally like in design it may not necessary work for your site’s visitors. Unless you have extensive experience with/knowledge of website usage patterns and functionality, it is better to rely on your web designer's experience and training. Websites should never appear phony or overly unusual. It should conform to the common standard, yet showcase your unique features in ways that generate more interest from the site visitor.

Function dictates design

Once a dentist asked me to design a website with a blooming flower picture, full screen. Although it was A very unusual idea and perhaps attractive, it was nevertheless misleading to the visitors. A good designer will suggests what is best for your design.



What Happens Once Your Website Is Complete?

Your website is perfect and you are happy! But the happiness will last until you discover that no one is visiting it. So we come to the next stage: marketing. Like most other design companies, we take care of e-marketing. This is different from standard marketing which is using physical media of distribution. E-marketing it is based on Search Engine Optimization, which is in fact only one part of the whole marketing procedure.
