Website Design. Website Development. They’re the same thing, right? Right?
Well… actually, no.
Website design is the creative side. The look, the message, the brand identity you want to convey to your customers. It’s all about panache & style. Think of it as the right hemisphere of the brain. Designers have more of a rockstar persona; they drive fast, date wild women and create compelling brands that sell.
Website Development is the practical side: the framework behind the design, the skeleton of codes & scripts that make your website perform like a champ. Think of it as the left hemisphere of the brain. Coders are like mad scientists tinkering away in the lab. They don’t have time for fast cars or dating, they are working on perfecting your code right now.
Many website design firms seem unable to grasp this basic concept – they assign a single provider to your entire project. At Go Big L.A., we understand that everyone has their own unique talents. That’s why we always have an actual designer working on your website design. Makes sense, right? Coders aren’t suitable designers nor are designers suitable coders. They are completely different methodologies with completely different skillsets. Rest assured, our professional web designers will deliver you multiple concepts & proofs until you’re 100% satisfied. Then and only then will we move on to the website development phase.
Your website will be professionally designed in Photoshop from scratch. Of course, visual references are always appreciated. Every client has different tastes. Sometimes we’ll literally ask you “really, you want THAT?” Expect brutal honesty. It leads to a better final product. We fully respect your vision but trust the experts to refine it for the best end results. Please reference other websites we’ve designed, a competitor’s site or really, any website on the worldwide web. This gives us a great starting point. We are not in the business of stealing content or graphics, we just want to get to know your personal style.
Mobile Responsive Technology is on the rise due to the growing trend in clientele searching over their tablets and smart phones. No website should be without this feature. It ensures that a potential client can easily navigate your site without having to pan, toggle, or zoom in on key elements of your webpage. With an ever-increasing number of people searching on their mobile devices for a vast array of services, this is a surefire way to guarantee that your information is more accessible than your competitors.
Trust the experts. Let’s work together to make your perfect website vision a reality!
