Website Design Guides #01

Website Design Guides

Between us, we have over 50 years experience designing for the web, print and other media. In the area of website design though we have especially deep experience in certain sectors, and so in this section, we thought we would share some of that experience.

Of course, the web is full of advice like this, and you'll have seen some links to online tips and advice in other sections of this website, but we think we are addressing a need that most other blogs and guides don't consider. The key to this is our sector experience. None of us has created a website for a bank, or a supermarket or a travel agency. However we have created an awful lot of websites for reflexologists, counsellors and antique dealers to name a few.


Sector by Sector Website Design Guides


Any website should make sensible design decisions about layout and should implement a navigation system that is intuitive and simple. It must have content that is readable and relevant to the audience as well. However, to create a website that is really effective, you also need to create a resonance and emotional response with your audience.

In each of these guides, we'll be talking about making suitable images choices, colour choices and other aesthetic decisions. We'll also talk about content, style of wording and much more. The colour scheme and presentation which suits a reflexologist's website will be quite different from that of an antique dealer, but it will also vary from that required by a counsellor or sports therapist.

For this reason, we have created this series of guides, approaching website design sector by sector.

New Stuff

We've been thinking hard over the Summer about how we can help more PHD Interactive clients get access to high quality unique design without incurring the costs that tend to accompany bespoke design. There is our Silver Design service of course which is very popular and costs only 39 but PHD Interactive challenged us to come up with something else - something even better!

And so we have. We are putting finishing touches now to our Silver Gallery service. The Silver Gallery is a collection of pre-made designs, each created by an experienced designer. Clients will be able to preview their PHD Interactive website using any of these designs and choose the one they like best. Each design will be unique so once it has been chosen and paid for, no one else can have it. The cost? All we can say for now is that you will like it.
