Shortcuts for Page Design - Design Tools
(Page 3 of 4 )
Many Web site editors (Bravehost's is pictured above) come equipped with tools that make design much easier. Instead of writing lengthy HTML code, you can click buttons to achieve the fonts and styles you crave. If you can master using these tools, you may find you don't need page design templates to create the site you envision.
If they're available to you, learn how to use these editing tools to your best advantage. It takes a lot less time to click buttons than it does to write code, remember, and saving time is in your best interest if you want to have your site functioning soon. Play around with the free tools, experimenting so that you can get a good feel for what your editor is capable of doing. Hands-on learning is sometimes the best approach to page design.
Professional Page Designers
It's fairly simple to use templates and editing tools, but maybe it's not simple enough. It still takes time, after all, to shop for templates and to learn to use the features your Web editor offers. Why bother when you can still choose an easier route to page design: use professional page designers.
For those who aren't afraid to spend money but can't afford to spend any time on their site, hiring a professional page designer may be the best choice. These people have taken the time to learn all that coding so you don't have to, and they can present you with many different options for totally customized pages.
Don't necessarily have a lot of money for hiring help with your site? You may be able to make a trade with a designer, providing free space on your site so they can advertise their own work and wares. If you have little cash to spare but a site to use as a building block, some sort of non-monetary arrangement could work out for both parties.
