Good website design requires a whole suite of skills. Design fundamentals, of course—the site needs to look appealing and be appropriate to the subject, just like any project. But it also requires an understanding of information architecture, ever changing technology and design trends, and a significant eye towards user experience design as well. The way that users engage with content on the web is often brief and fleeting, and they are far more likely to “bounce off” of a site that doesn’t present and easy and intuitive path to the content they are looking for, both on individual pages and on a site overall. The vast majority of websites being made today are built on content management systems built to allow non-developers to update content and maintain their websites on an ongoing basis. Being able to prepare a design and build the appropriate templates and themes that will continue to work elegantly and seamlessly as end users add further content is a unique challenge that we thoroughly embrace.
