Better by Design?


WHY DO I NEED A BESPOKE WEBSITE DESIGN…..WHY NOT USE A TEMPLATED SITE?

There’s nothing wrong with templated websites, my own was created within WIX but it took me weeks to find my way around the software and I already have design knowledge. The trouble with templated sites is that unless you really understand design & layout, you may end up with a workable website but one that doesn’t really reflect your YOU or your brand. Engaging a designer will ensure that the website fully reflects your brand aesthetic and that the imagery, functionality and copy has been especially chosen with your business in mind. The end result will look professional and totally unique to you. Templated websites are great in the short term but as your business grows, you may require changes or tweaks to that site that extend beyond the parameters of a standardised template blueprint. It’s reassuring to know that assuming you have a good relationship with your designer (lets face it, you wouldn’t have engaged them in the first place if you didn’t) you can just get on the phone and talk through your changes or requirement safe in the knowledge that they’ll handle the job for you. I work in collaboration with Websites by Dave Parker. During 2017 we collaborated on several projects and learnt a lot from each other. Dave really understands the functionality of a good website and is a terrific problem solver, he always has a solution. He understands my ideas and my commitment to consistency in branding so together we’ve produced some websites we feel our clients can be proud of. Here are a few examples so take a look:
