Why Custom Website Design?
Our talented team professional designers and developers will create custom website design with a unique customer experience.
Many web design companies are simply taking themes and reworking and modifying them. Educated consumers can quickly tell the difference between a poorly modified theme website and a custom designed site. However, for many small businesses custom design is simply not an option. Many templates and themes can be used to develop a one-of-a-kind design however this would not be considered fully custom! True custom design is really only needed for large scale businesses especially with key players like Shopify, 3dcart and BigCommerce out there.
3dcart for example offers a wide variety of core themes that can be used as building blocks to develop a completely custom design. In many cases if PSD files are provided this is a great option. The same can be said for Shopify and BigCommerce.
How does custom or partially custom design work?
Let’s use building a house as an example. First, you need a foundation. In the world of website design, the foundation will be the platform you decide to start with, WordPress, Shopify, 3dcart or BigCommerce etc. Once we have the foundation set we can move on to building the walls of the house and in this case the website. Again, these days there are so many themes that can be used to build from. Now, picture the foundation with the wall up, but you can see through everything.
As we all know, when we build a house there will be load bearing walls. The same is true with a website. So if you want your categories on the left and not across the top, we need to build with that in mind. Custom design from a template or theme can be achieved easily with that in mind. Just like a house, you can knock down any walls you want, but they cannot be load bearing. This is important when you are ready to have us build a website.
Once the walls are build, the rest would all be considered interior decorating. We are experienced web designers and can the website “look” however you dream.
So now the question is… Is Custom Web Design really needed anymore?
The answer in short is, yes and no! It really depends on the needs of your business. If you come to us with design mock-ups, likely we wont be coding from scratch unless you require it. It should be noted, the budget would also need to reflect the amount of additional work involved. If its not a requirement, we will utilize a core with a CLOSE foundation and build your custom design! To the search engines, as long as the code is unique, they will see your website as one-of-a-kind.
