What do you want your site to look like?
Often times clients come to us not sure what they want their site to look like. This can create a challenge in designing a site that meets expectations. Without knowing the desired “look and feel”, even if the content is correct, it may not be presented in a manner that represents the organization properly.
The amount of time and work required to achieve the desired look and feel should not be under estimated. Many companies hire a graphic design firm to create their “corporate look”. Depending upon the firm or individual hired to create this identity, the price can range from $500 for a quickie logo to multiple thousands of dollars.
Short cuts in this process can be:
- Provide a list websites that you really like and what it is you like about each.
- Provide your logo and company colors
- Provide your corporate font
- Provide a design brief
A design brief provides direction and information to help come up with a suitable design…and the more information that is provided, the likely you will have a positive outcome.
Below are few resources that you may find helpful. You can also find additional resources be searching for design briefs on www.google.com.
