Donegal Web Designers
Sometimes a simple web design theme is all that is required, something that has been created before with a few modifications. Customised design is certainly more time consuming and more expensive. But it is much more effective and certainly worthy of consideration. But find web designers who are competent and trustworthy, not just someone selling a low priced, low quality option and a handful of misguided promises. Your website is too important to leave in the hands of an amateur. It is your shop or office window online. How do you want to look? If you want to look cheap and slow or inefficient, then hire the low cost option. If you want to look professional and well qualified, then engage a professional.

Can a Graphic Designer also do Web Development ?
No, is the short answer. Graphic Design is a left brain activity, whereas Web Development is a right brain area. Most web developers fancy themselves as graphic designers and create poor or mediocre design at best. Same with Graphic designers, many think that they can create a design and then put it on the web and it will just work forever – wrong ! Ferrari do not ask their designers to physically build the car, nor do they ask auto mechanics to design it. Good web agencies try to employ a good senior graphic designer and a good senior web developer, two very difficult positions to fill well, so very few manage to do it. Even if they do, they rarely hold on to the staff very long. So, getting the right agency is critical for any long term engagement.
Just accept that you could employ two people, but ensure that they can work together. The Graphic designer could develop something that will cost more to build, unless they talk to the Web Developer about the best layout first. Between them they will work together to keep costs down. Any Graphic Designer who is not used to working in Web Design, will generally design for Print, which will lead to poor web design and low conversion of visitors. Get one that can show loads of examples of website work done, with happy clients, similar to the work you want done. Also check out their “style” to see if you like it. They all have their own, so you want to be sure that you like it. Generally, their “Look” is going to show through all their work. Developers are the same, they like one code or one website platform more than any other, so they will work with .Net or Joomla or WordPress. These are very different platforms, so get advice on which is best for your project. Ideally, get a dependable web design agency in Donegal, which has the experienced team to to handle the entire project for you, from planning to design, development to digital marketing and ongoing support.
