Whether you need a website to represent your company or a web presence for an interest or organisation you’d like to promote, a web designer can help you achieve what you want.
The term ‘web designer’ is used by designers to cover a range of different skills and it is important to understand the type of web designer you need in order to achieve your goals.
Of course the technical definition of a web designer is someone who designs web sites, however it can also be used to describe someone who creates websites and they are two different things. A web designer will use their artistic skills to create a great looking web design but may not have the skills to build it and make it into an actual working website, they are the equivalent of an architect who will design your house but not go out and physically build it. However many web designers have realised that the more skills they have the more services they can offer to clients, so while they still call themselves web designers they do have the skills to take your site from concept through to completion.
This means that when you’re choosing a web designer you need to be on the ball, and ask as many questions as you need to to ensure you get the right person for the job. In fact, if you need a whole website it may be worth opting for a web design company who have all the skills and experience to deliver a complete website.
It is also worth remembering that investment in a website does not just include the design and building of the website. You will also need to factor in the cost of hosting, this is usually an annual cost to place your site on the World Wide Web. In addition there may be maintenance costs to make sure your site remains up to date and promotion costs to ensure your site can be found amidst all the other site websites.
