THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOOD & BAD WEBSITE DESIGN


The Difference Between Good Website Design & Bad Website Design starts with the designer’s abilities, and then expands out into the strengths the designer brings to the table. I have over 20 years of practical work experience in managing products and marketing strategies for some of the tops companies (within their market place) in the World. Combine that experience with my eye for aesthetics, and the ability to focus on what’s important to the client’s demographic, and I believe somewhere within all of that you’ll find the difference between Good Website Design & Bad Website Design.

Below you will find a small sample of the websites that I have designed. I invite you to browse my portfolio and form your own opinion. Ask yourself if each design is catching your eye. Does the design make you want to learn more about the person, product, or service? I then invite you to contact me to discuss your own website needs.

  • FINDING A REPUTABLE DESIGNER

    Working as a freelance designer for as long as I have, you would suspect that I have heard countless horror stories concerning fly-by-night designers, and all of the innocent people that have had the misfortune of encountering them. You’re right, I have, and that’s why I hope this section will help each of you in the often times painful process of finding a reputable designer.

    1. Ask for references, and check them! The number one mistake people make is going with the designer who gives them the “best quote” without speaking with others who have actually done business with said designer. More often than not, people make deposits on websites (in good faith), only to never hear from the designer again.

    2. Always Get It In Writing! Find a designer that believes in contracts designed to protect both of your best interest. Trust me, designers get ripped off every day… unfortunately I know this from experience. So be sure to work with a designer that backs up their work with a contract!

    3. Too Good To Be True! I see them every day, advertisements for website design from $129.00! As a designer I often ask myself “how can this be true?!” Trust me when I say this, “it isn’t true.” It’s all an effective ploy to get you on the phone where you soon learn that the $129.00 site is not really available. You will also find that these “design companies” are located somewhere overseas, where you will never be able to get them on the phone at a reasonable hour, or track them down when they disappear with your deposit. So be careful of these schemes designed to suck you in, and then vannish before the ink on your check has had a chance to dry.

    Finally, I think it is important to add that I am not the only reputable designer in the world. I have formed strong bonds with designers the world over that also recognize the importance of helping good people find good designers. Whether you choose to work with me or not, I hope you have found this section helpful in your search for the right designer. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or would like to receive a free quote on your next design project.
