“Virtual reality” is a phrase that has been used to refer to the online world, partly to separate it from the supposedly more genuine, offline reality. However, given the importance and pervasiveness of online interactions, we might say that, nowadays, a company or even a person is less real if they cannot be reached, contacted, or at least talked about online. The rise of e-commerce through sites such as Amazon, eBay, and many others adds to the phenomenon of online interaction impacting real life and real finances. Thus, a person’s online existence—especially in the world of business—can be as important as their performance and appearance offline.
In this sort of world, it is important for businesses to have an attractive, appropriate website. This is much more complex than simply having an eye-catching, fashionable design. It also means that the site’s appearance has to be appropriate to its intention and audience. Its features, such as animation or sounds, should be impressive, but not overbearing—or too much for slow connections to handle. (We are well-versed in the highly technical aspects of site design, including compatibility with different types of hardware and software.)The site’s structure and layout should also be user-friendly and easy to understand, so that visitors can easily find the content they want. Function, message, and form should all balance each other: it is the task of designers at Alicka to come up with the right mix for your site.
We can tailor our services to clients who know exactly what they want, or who are still exploring possibilities. In fact, our staff is also trained in marketing strategies, so we can help unsure clients to come up with suitable designs and branding tactics, some of which can be used on merchandise or in other areas besides the website itself. Some examples include logo design, the creation of slogans, and decisions regarding demographic targeting.
Alicka’s site design section is very skilled at its core competency, but can offer many other benefits besides the appearance and organization of your website. Our task is to help you put on the best face online for yourself and your company, to generate real traffic and real profits.
