Custom Web site Design Strategies

Written by Captain Media

Web site design has certainly, inrepparttar past decade, evolved tremendously. More clients now are demanding custom design, as opposed torepparttar 139748 'cookie cutter' sites of yesteryear.

Where once there existed a limit as torepparttar 139749 types of fonts used,repparttar 139750 types of coding languages used, andrepparttar 139751 styles themselves, there is nowrepparttar 139752 possibility for more variety in Web site design than ever before. This has come about because ofrepparttar 139753 advances in technology that did not exist even a few years ago, and it has opened up many creative avenues for Web site designers inrepparttar 139754 creation of custom designs.

Web development overall, has to be more competitive, and take into considerationrepparttar 139755 needs of clients now, when literally billions of Web sites compete for attention online on a daily basis. A Web site isrepparttar 139756 first impressionrepparttar 139757 owner of an E-commerce business makes on their own potential clients, andrepparttar 139758 competition factor, has now led torepparttar 139759 burgeoning of more creative designs and implementations to deal with this competition factor.

Web development now needs to speak torepparttar 139760 needs not only ofrepparttar 139761 clients that are buildingrepparttar 139762 Web site, butrepparttar 139763 needs ofrepparttar 139764 visitors who are, overall "potential prospects' ofrepparttar 139765 Web site owners.

E-commerce needs have created some rather unique approaches to Web development, fromrepparttar 139766 most beautiful torepparttar 139767 most garish, unfortunately. In an attempt to have their own E-commerce sites 'noticed', some business owners have become too individualistic, and there does abound many sites that are not easily navigable, nor especially pleasing torepparttar 139768 eye. A Web designer needs to use good judgment when making choices about how much is 'too much' individuality.

Web site designers can avoidrepparttar 139769 pitfalls of becoming overly creative, and yet do much now to make a client's site, very appealing and eye-catching by keeping a few simple rules in mind:

A. Arerepparttar 139770 colors pleasing to most visitors, without being garish and hard to view? B. Arerepparttar 139771 fonts easily read by most visitors, which means not too large (too much scrolling), or too small, (too much squinting)? C. Isrepparttar 139772 navigation and usability ofrepparttar 139773 site what it can be? Can visitors find features easily? D. Isrepparttar 139774 site clean and uncluttered? It should never look like your grandmother's attic, where thirty years of junk abounds in every corner!

Atrepparttar 139775 same time,repparttar 139776 E-commerce functionality can be maintained with advanced creativity, as navigability and usability can be implemented flawlessly also. The new advances in technology now have led torepparttar 139777 following changes that increaserepparttar 139778 ability to improve creativity:

1. A staggering number of font sizes that can be flawlessly implemented to distinguish a site. Up until just a few years ago, Web masters were limited inrepparttar 139779 choice of fonts, and font sizes. Times New Roman and Arial wererepparttar 139780 two standard fonts used, as some browsers could not effectively display other fonts with any reliability, changing fonts that were not Times New Roman and Arial intorepparttar 139781 Sans Serif, which is not all that attractive. This was a big deterrent torepparttar 139782 creative use of fonts. With new embedding technologies, this is no longer a real problem, and many designers are now using great new fonts that make a site 'stand out' effortlessly.

America Growing Cold

America Growing Cold

And because iniquity shall abound,repparttar 139718 love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:12

In America, everyone wants our money. The government taxes business and industry, then tax that money again, via stockholder profits. They also tax our labor income, then tax whatever money we have left (the second time) as we make purchases.

In addition,repparttar 139719 government continues to annually tax for real estate, automobiles, and other big ticket items purchased. So,repparttar 139720 same money gets taxed upon 'from several times to life', besides state and local taxes. Then, if we sellrepparttar 139721 taxable item for profit, we may have to pay taxes on that profit, too.

And if that wasn't enough, government further taxes whomever they determine to penalize; from big industry allrepparttar 139722 way down torepparttar 139723 individual smoker. Plus, penalty may be charged for whomever does not pay taxes in advance, like if government pre-determines your quarterly income could prove to exceed annual expectation.

Though we might not complain except taxed money is spent without logic. For example: it is given to other countries, when we have homeless, too. It pays for wars intended to protect life and it pays for abortions to end life.

Additional taxes are taken for Social Security, which is suppose to be given back in our retirement years; exceptrepparttar 139724 government spent that money, too. And, instead of replacing what they stole, they're trying to figure out how to get out of their commitment.

If America is not your native country, you're likely to receive more financial assistance here than if you're American and, if you're really in need, you may have to get a divorce before assistance is given. We're also expected to support people too lazy to work. And, if that wasn't enough, government gave thousands of our jobs to Mexico.

Churches remind us of our duty to support them and we can still do that, even though God already promises provisions in exchange for walking in faith. Only, it doesn't stop there. TV ministries are known for saying God can't bless or heal, or much of anything else until we give to them, too; that being above our tithe. Only, Biblical mandate is for ministries to be supported byrepparttar 139725 church. And while some might argue they are appealing torepparttar 139726 universal church, God never told us to be asking others for our needs, only Him. Yet, their presentation is so compelling that money is sent, often later to discover such ministries were fraudulent.

That isn't to say but what all ministries might actually accomplish some good. But, whenrepparttar 139727 church does not support its laborers (leading servants to mission fields likerepparttar 139728 internet and those ministries blossom with no financial backing), it seems evidentrepparttar 139729 remainder missed God's best.

Then, there's varied poor relief programs where companies keep as much as 95% of donations and only 5% actually gets torepparttar 139730 starving children. In addition, most of our government's 'foreign aid efforts' have been confiscated, wherein intended parties didn't receiverepparttar 139731 food and supplies sent, and remaining countries only like us torepparttar 139732 extent it serves to their benefit.

On a more local level, in addition to donating our used items forrepparttar 139733 benefit of those less fortunate (for which these ministries usually sell, torepparttar 139734 poor, what we donated for free), groups collect food, at thanksgiving, to give to those already on food stamps. Yet, these often eat better thanrepparttar 139735 rest. And, if you happen to live in a nicer neighborhood, those looking for handouts knock on your door first.

And there's always Christmas, with bell ringers you have to walk passed, in order to enter stores; their mere presence guilting you for having been blessed enough to afford entry while offeringrepparttar 139736 unspoken promise of relief 'when you fill their collection buckets'. However, this is one ofrepparttar 139737 groups that sold our previous donations torepparttar 139738 poor. Luke 16:8

But also, throughoutrepparttar 139739 remaining year, any of several organizations may summons you to purchase their overpriced non-need items for a greater good ... and, if you have children in school and don't buy or help sell for their cause, you're deemed a bad parent, in addition to being a chintzy neighbor or disgruntled co-worker ... leaving you only two options: 1.) to look good in front of your peers or 2.) to forget about wise money management.

Religious activists rally support for their endeavor to stand against all that ails. However, in paying close attention, it becomes evident their methods often contradict their claim to righteousness; withholding pertinent information torepparttar 139740 point of slanderous accusation atrepparttar 139741 expense of stockholders (sometimesrepparttar 139742 named company only being a target to convince smaller corporations to fear them;repparttar 139743 end thought to justifyrepparttar 139744 means), and, while professing themselves to be Christians, they promote warring instead of accountability. 2 Chron. 7:14
