5 Things to Look for When Choosing a Web Design Agency
When looking to take your company’s website to the next level, finding the ideal web design agency is a feat in itself. There are multiple places offering similar services everywhere you look, so how do you choose one that fits your aspirations?
A new website design can quickly become the face of a company. You need to be sure that you are getting exactly what you are envisioning without the hassle of dealing with bottom-shelf designers.
To help with this process, we have compiled a short list of things to watch for on your web design agency search:
Proven Web Design Experience
Experience is everything. You want designers that know what they are doing and know how to do it well. At D4, we make it clear that we have over 97 years of combined experience!
You might have noticed that many agencies are here one day and gone the next. Do some research to see how long various web design agencies have been up and running.
Many agency websites also have online portfolios and client testimonials that you can browse through. See D4’s portfolio section for a reference.
Individualized Client Relations
Our clients mean the world to us, and that’s how it should be. You will want to find an agency that puts its customers first.
Unless you aren’t picky with design uniqueness, try to avoid the “cookie cutter” pitches. The most promising designs come from agencies that put themselves in their clients’ shoes.
No Middleman Business Model
Some web design agencies tend to outsource much of their work to other agencies and contractors around the world. If in-house design is important to you, this is something to look out for. Most agencies will be upfront about this. Just ask!
Eye for Responsive Design
Contemporary web design is almost synonymous with responsiveness. Responsive websites are those that will retain structure and fluidity when resized in different Internet browsers, varying screen resolutions, and via mobile devices.
In the technology world today, responsive design is vital. Most people utilize a smartphone and are constantly viewing websites with it. You want their user experience to be at its best.
Speaking of user experience (UX), it is what all good web design boils down to. Without user experience in mind, websites would lack engagement with their visitors.
