Customized design work is definitely the thing these days and whaddayaknow, it happens to be our specialty! But really, when was the last time you saw a blog or a website with no design whatsoever? It really doesn’t happen much these days (and when it does, how long do you stick around that site?).
Most people want to put a new, fresh design out there on the web, a design that reflects their personality and makes their presence known. You want someone to land on your site and bam! they get get sucked in immediately by the design (and then they stay and find out you have awesome content to match!). So what could possibly be better than improving the first impression on our clients’ sites? Below is a branding board we put together to define the “Wee His & Hers” website.
Why You Should Have a Customized Design for Your Online Space:
Be a Pro. A professional designer is just that—a professional. Sure, you could make a blog yourself (probably?). But good designers know that it takes a few years of real designing to figure out what looks exceptional and what will draw your audience.
Stand Out. Don’t find yourself in the awkward position of being a template-repeater. Yeah, I just went there. It’s the worst when you find that someone uses the same template as yourself when you’re trying to be one-of-a-kind. If you do decide to go the premade route, make sure you do something to set it apart. Stylize your sidebar with a photo of yourself or change up the font!
Create a Brand. One of the first things that advertisers do to increase sales of a product is to create an effective, recognizable brand. Custom work helps to actualize your brand and reinforce it to your readers/customers. You want them to know who you are and remember you! The photo at the top shows several logos we’ve done to help brand businesses!
Personally, when I switched my first blog to a customized design, it made my online identity more one-of-a-kind and my readers noticed it too. I became a more defined and frequent blogger, which is what your visitors want, it’s what keeps them coming back and gets you a nice little flow of traffic! In short, it was the best thing for my little corner of the internet, and it could be for you too. <3
