Our analysis of web design companies in Canada delves into the strategies and methodologies used to determine the type of navigation to use. There are a number of different ways a website can be navigated and different ways to display relevant links. We analyze how a vendor determines which method of navigation will work best with the aesthetic decisions made during the design and development phase.
Visual appeal is attributed towards the different components found within a web design including the imagery, photography, and colors used. We compare how different aspects of design are used to influence the overall end product and how the design will appeal particularly to the industry the vendor conducts itself within. It is important to have a design philosophy which accurately matches the style of business.
During our analysis we investigate a vendor’s ability to produce websites with the latest web standards in mind. Web standards ensure that websites will display consistently across a number of different platforms, web browsers, and mobile platforms. In addition, web standards will also ensure that a website is operating properly from the back end to prevent issues relating to performance and security from occurring.
Our criteria of consistency focuses on ensuring vendors are capable of designing websites which contain a constant level of quality. It is important for a web design firm to have professional employed which are able to consistently perform and produce websites which meet or exceed the expectations of the client. We recommend vendors which have a history and a pattern of success web design projects based on client feedback.
Websites designed with download time in mind often perform better under stress tests and in real time as visitors are downloading images and information with reduced file sizes. There is also found to be correlation in the loading times of web pages and how well a website performs from a lead conversion and SEO perspective. We recommend vendors which take download time and image optimization into consideration.
