STORYTELLING GRAPHICS DESIGNSWritten by Florie Lyn Masarate
With boom of information superhighway in today’s world, more and more people are relying on internet for information, assistance and entertainment. People now can work at their home, in front of a computer, not anymore needing to travel from place to place to acquire data and go about scheduled tasks.
In answer to this need, businesses, big and small alike, turned to websites to conduct and advertise their businesses. These websites make it easy for others to gain access to information with use of a computer. Information at tips of fingertips. The contents are what make these sites a valuable tool. But people being judgmental, first impressions are one that always lasts.
The first thing people see are visuals that are laid out in front of them. Some people tend to judge from just seeing. So from first glance, they already identify what is interesting and what is not. That is why graphic designs were created.
Graphic designs are first things you see in prints, whether on web or in paper. It is layout, colors, or drawings. They tend to be as colorful, as artistic and as creative as possible. Depending on requirements of customer, graphic designs ranged from simple lively drawings to 3D animation types. These are works of creative minds trying do unique and more ultra-modern concepts that enhances advertisements, media and businesses alike. It is no wonder that all throughout years, as graphic designs take on new styles, need for them increases. What people cannot put in words, they put into visuals.
Choosing Your Web DesignWritten by Josh Szatmari
We would all like to have best looking website, that's a fact - but if we keep in mind that our main objective is to finally sell our product or service online, we'll realize that maybe design is not most important factor when it comes to achieve this objective.
Professional design is probably most time consuming part of web development, so my first tip would be, before you are contacting a Web Design Company, to browse Internet for companies which offer similar services and products - you will find probably hundreds of them - save in your Favorites four or five websites which you really like, print out these, and show printouts to as many people as you can, especially to your existing customers, and ask them which one it's more likely is to make them take an action (contact, buy, subscribe) on site. This way you have conducted your own little "marketing pool" which will add weeks and weeks of online presence and business.
Based on this little pool you've conducted you know have a good idea on how your website should look like to entice your visitors to buy your service/product.
