Web Design by Yeah Can breathes new life into Effortless Abundance site
Effortless Abundance new Look web site
The look and feel must be decided first in web design
A web site is a top priority for any company. This was the case for Effortless Abundance as well. As soon as the logo was approved, Yeah Can launched into the web design work for this client. Yeah Can is a web design studio based in Vietnam while serving global clients.
The first step was to design the interface. This involves choosing the right colours for the look and placing the logo in a prominent but visually pleasing position. Then it was a matter of deciding what colours to use for the various headings and sections.
It was also decided where to put the sign up for email window and where to position the social networking icons. All in all the site had to reflect the mood and image of the business. This part of the process went off very easily as the corporate colours had been determined at the same time as the logo had been signed off. It was therefore quite straight forward to complete the look and feel.
Web Design is not as easy as it seems
Once the look and feel had been approved the build could start. The build itself is not actually that difficult using Wordpress. Wordpress started its life off as a blog content management tool. What has made Worldpress so popular is the fact that there is such a large developer community who build great templates and make a bundle of widgets and plugins available often for free to use.
This makes it easy for designers to work with Wordpress and to build beautiful sites that clients are able to upgrade whenever needs be. This means that clients are not at the mercy of designers who might charge a penalty fee for small little upgrades or changes such as a adding a new telephone number.
Of course nothing is ever as easy as one thinks. Strangely enough close on 12% of the internet using world is still using a 10 year old browser version of Internet Explorer. Check this fun site to see where the culprits are.
And it's IE6 that is the problem child. Every web designer has to ensure that the web site he or she is designing will run on all of the main web browser software options and versions. This means it has to work on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer being the most commonly used applications. But that's not all. The web site has to work on various versions of these applications. And mostly it's easy to work with them except for IE6.
Of course lets not forget the new headaches facing designers. And that's called mobile. New pit falls will open with problems all of their own. Do not make the mistake of ignoring this new field as we are only just seeing the start of the move towards the mobile platform.
