When you are looking for Graphic Design Services you may think you know exactly what you are looking for but then when it comes to choosing your service provider you are not sure what your expectations should be. Naturally you want to use the best website builder that has the skills and knowledge that it takes to not only get your site up and running but to rank well.
First thing you need to do is have a clear understanding as to what graphic design is all about. This gives you a foundation to work with both in what you perceive your site looking like and then what qualifications to look for in a good graphic artist. Think of this as what it is, which is visual communication. First thought is that this communicating is done just through pictures, but it is actually a combination of text, symbols and pictures or images. Then these are fine tuned to make them stand out more or attract attention. It may be done with the addition of certain types of fonts or color combinations. Don’t forget the layout of all this material is important to the graphic design as well.
Now where does graphic design come into action when it comes to your site? You already know that it has to be appealing, and this is where the confusion starts. As a non graphic designer you are viewing your future site or the makeover of your site from a different standpoint.
How do you see your site?
You are going to visualize your site as eye popping. You no doubt want everyone that lands on your site to be super impressed with your design and say “wow! You may be thinking that bright bold colors that jump out on the tag lines, and an array of different colors will really be an eye catcher. You want tons of pictures and text so you portray absolutely everything you want to get out to your customers all on one page, just in case they don’t hang around on your site and take the time to check out other pages.
How do the Krypton IT Graphic Designers see your site?
They too are going to want the same results that you do. These are getting visitors to be really impressed with your site and have the desire to stay and see what you are all about, and to follow through with your “call to action”. Your “call to action” however, is the responsibility of another type of professional which is your content creator.
Your expert in graphics is first going to determine what the main colors are best for your particular type of site. If you are an Ecommerce site then it has to be taken into account that you may have many different products that are going to be displayed, and these are going to create plenty of color. This means that more neutral colors will have to be used for the other components of your site. Small details are important like the title and text colors, and even the borders around your graphics. The colors of your logo will have to be taken into consideration. Then the purpose of your site if it is a corporate site will be important. If you are promoting meditation for example, then you most likely don’t want bright bold colors that are going to jump off the page of your site. You want your colors to set the mood, and this is just one of many areas that the Krypton IT graphic designers will take into consideration.
