About Web Design
Designing a site is easy.
However, designing a good site is a painstaking process with a lot of error potential.

A good web design will offer the visitor a logical, easy to understand & interesting flow whilst leading them through the site.
Web Design Tips
-- Navigation should be clear and consistent throughout all pages on the website
-- A Privacy Link should be included to give your visitors the assurance that they won't be spammed by having their information sold or passed on
-- Text links should be kept in blue
-- Use lots of White Space
-- Avoid the use of Animation or Flashing Objects
-- SEO - the site's design should provide for search engine optimisation which is essential if it is to attract visitors via search engines. Getting close to the top of search engines is not a task for the faint of heart
-- The speed that your page/s load is vital - should it take longer than 8secs to load, the chances are your visitor won't have waited to view it
-- A Site Map offers your visitors a 'road map' to follow whilst on your site. Search engines also love Site Maps which will improve your site's rankings with them
-- Avoid designing your site with Frames. They are confusing for visitors, designers & search engines don't index them properly
-- Use CSS to ensure consistency in terms of look & feel
-- The site should be design to accommodate all browsers & screen resolutions
-- The site should be about the vistor ('me') & not so much about the company ('you')
