Website design

Good news: a good website opens a lot of doors. Bad news: a not so good website may never open a few doors and close a few open doors.

Website is not just a set of web pages which would present information of your products, services or purpose on web. Website carries your brand. Website stamps your positioning. Website creates your identity. It is a general tendency to make opinions about a company by looking at the website; at times looking only at home page of the website.

Turning a website visitor into a customer is thought off as single most important function of a good website. While this is true, inherent expectation from your website is to create trust in minds of visitors.

A good or a bad website is often the result of how it has been treated while conceptualizing, designing and developing. One can easily mark the difference between a well thought out website and not so thought about website. This is where opinion making process starts for any website visitor; or may be it ends here.

I need a good website. But what does a good website mean?

Success in below four considerations results into a good website:

  1. Thought process
  2. Look and feel
  3. User focus in information architecture
  4. Technical correctness

1. Thought process

Thought process makes major difference. It boils down to two points: purpose and stakeholders. Technology comes later.

Purpose: For website design, first exercise which needs to be done is getting conviction on the purpose of designing new website. A brainstorming session or an open team discussion might reveal that purpose statements are not unanimous across team members. Once we get the purpose right, we can believe that we have taken a significant step towards a good website.

Stakeholders: Once the purpose of web designing is clear, now we can freeze the list of stakeholders for this new website. Often this step is either missed or inadequately done or thought off before getting conviction on the purpose. Many of us may easily forget that existing employees are important stakeholders of the website as it is a tendency to get overwhelmed about target audience of our business. While potential clients may be the most important stakeholders; existing employees, potential employees, vendors and associates also visit your website and make opinions.

A good website communicates the purpose to its stakeholders effectively.

2. Look and feel

It is given that website should look attractive. However, interpretation of ‘attractive website’ changes as per the type of business or purpose of the website. A right blend of uncluttered layouts, use of colors, adequate use of graphics, use of white spaces in adequate quantity, use of suitable and readable fonts and consistency of design elements help getting desirable visual impact.

3. User focus

Information architecture is the key as far as user interaction with the website is concerned. Well thought out information architecture helps making navigation easy for the user. Attractive and intuitive design with a logical and easy navigation makes it a pleasant and often fruitful experience for any user on your website.

4. Technical correctness

Website should be compatible with web standards and follow best practices.

w3 standards compatible website: The term ‘Web Standards’ can mean different things to different people. For some it is ‘table-free websites’, for others it is ‘using valid code’. However, ‘web standards’ is a much broader term than this. A website built to web standards should adhere to standards (HTML, XHTML, XML, CSS, etc) and pursue best practices (valid code, accessible code, correct code, user-friendly URLs etc).
