Web Design-Key TermsWeb design:

Web design, the art of developing for the web is something that goes beyond visual design. It is a blend of proper writing, designing and developing. During recent years professional web design has become imperative. A few years ago, it was predictable that a visitor to a web site took about 8 seconds to decide to stay on that web site or click the "Back" button. If your web design does not clutch their attention immediately, they won't stick around. And if your web site does not offer any benefits, they won't bookmark it and so they won't come back.

Web development:

  • Multi column displays in CSS

    A lot of designs we have to turn into HTML these days have multi column elements. These are created because either the copy text might get too long to be readable in a fully expanded browser or the designer wants to make sure that as many as possible page elements are "above the fold". Normally these problems can be easily solved with an HTML table.

  • Taming the select

    Some browsers allow for border, others allow for a different font, some just don't allow any styling at all. Partly this is our own fault; we shouldn't try to redesign form elements to blend into the page design. Users know their form elements and know what to do with them, if we change the look of the elements, they will have to acclimatize.

Web hosting:

You'll learn how to separate needed features from fluff, and what to look for in a host with your eye on the future. Disk space is how much space your files are allowed to use up, and bandwidth is the amount of data you can transfer to visitors. To get a better idea of bandwidth, whenever someone visits your page, the page they visit is transferred to their browser.

Graphic designers:

Graphic design is not just about generating good looking stuff, but creating impact and communicating sense. Graphic designers are fully equipped and qualified people to perform this task. They can create graphics, modify, restructure, arrange and rearrange them to communicate the required message. Graphic designers need to be creative with a constant supply of fresh and unique ideas, able to work under tight deadlines and should keep updating with new technology and demands.

Site Redesign:

In time, all websites become embarrassed and unmanageable, and even obsolete. So often, websites grow over time, and they need to be redesigned, because the information within them needs to be condensed or reorganized. Authority and eCommerce websites often contain several pages and are in the constant state of flux. However, if the cost of rebuilding your site is an issue, there are make-shift ways to go about reaching your goals.
