Website Design

Good Website design is a vital part in the process of getting your organisation / church / business online. Visitors to your site require a professional, well designed site which enables them to quickly complete their user tasks.

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include:-

  • graphic design
  • interface design
  • webpage authoring, often using specialised software, using languages such as HTML, SHTML, XHTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, PERL & CGI
  • user experience design
  • search engine optimization (SEO)
  • web accessibility.

Web page design requires a strong understanding of the end user’s needs and the various platforms on which users will view the page (computers, tablets, smart phones, etc).

To better serve these needs, designers must understand the best way to approach the various parts of a web page, including:-

  • the header
  • navigation
  • content areas
  • sidebars
  • footers
  • backgrounds

You will need to consider if, and how, you plan to implement the majority of these elements into your design.
