Website Design
 

The first thing to take to mind when developing a website is to decide on the purpose, scope and structure. We design and develop various websites. There are several types of websites on the internet each specializing in a particular service or use. Some are selling something, some are pushing a point of view and some just want to share their knowledge with others. Here we will be looking at the design of various types and styles of websites although the basic principles would apply to any type of site. If you have a website on the internet, or are planning to build one, I am sure that you are creating it for a reason.

  • Are you selling something?

  • Do you want to tell something of yourself or your organization?

  • How about teaching something or entertaining someone?

Whatever your goal may be there is a category into which you fit. Checking the website descriptions below will help in your quest to find the type of site that you want to build.
