We, at samdobrow creative, are advocates of clean design. Clean design means we keep the special effects to a minimum so people are not distracted from what you are saying. We also avoid heavy scripts for animation and special effects menus. Those scripts can be problematic for search engines. There are situations where your business may deserve a high tech, gadget-rich, animated site streaming music and videos – that is not us. But don’t let that scare you away, we integrate all types of content, including video, slide shows, and audio to convey an appropriate message. Clean design is for serious business and that is what we do. At samdobrow creative, our website design services put your company on the map with a professional look and meaningful content.
We offer two approaches to website design services. Integrated identity-blog sites built with WordPress and traditional (static) websites built with HTML and CSS.
WordPress Website Design Services
Our recommended approach is an integrated identity-blog site developed on a WordPress platform. The WordPress software is free to use. With the WordPress engine, your identity information is integrated into your blog for a custom website design. Your blog and identity pages all have the same look and feel with seamless navigation. The WordPress platform provides you with an easy-to-use, browser based, editor to maintain and add new content. There is no need to learn HTML or FTP. WordPress was born in 2003 and has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world. It is used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress makes website development both quick and economical. A robust WordPress site with a standard custom design can be up and running in just a few days. Writing SEO optimized content, developing custom graphics, and integrating with social media takes a little longer.
Traditional Website Design Services
We can also design a traditional “identity” website. This approach offers the most flexibility in creating a unique look and feel. There may be some design options which are not practical with WordPress; but there are very few that would outweigh the benefits of a WordPress platform. Identity websites have mostly static content. Updating content requires at least a basic understanding of HTML and FTP. The time required to update a static site frequently results in less new content being posted. We can be retained to update your content every six to twelve months to reflect changes in your business. News articles and dynamic content generally are not posted on a static site.
