Choosing An Effective Web Design Company - Can You Easily...
(Page 3 of 6 )
Can You Easily Find the Information You Are Looking For?
This is critical. If you find yourself on a web site, the chances are you were looking for something in particular. Ensure that the elements of the designer's web site are easy to find. Check that you are able to quickly and easily spot the contents of the pages and move freely between pages.
Other design considerations are as follows:-
- Is the text clear and easy to read?
- Are the pages uncluttered and easy on the eye?
- Are there elements such as excessive animation distracting the user from the main text?
- Does the site appear quickly?
- Does the colour scheme and design fit in with the brand of the company (take the logo as a benchmark)?
The Technical Bits
Now this is important! Why?
First, because there is legislation in both the UK, the US and a variety of European countries that requires your site be accessible to disabled users. Failure to adhere to this will result in your having to hire a third party company to re-code and possibly redesign your entire web site.
Secondly, if your web site is not coded using standards (set by the www council) it may not function correctly when viewed by different people using different equipment.
