Web building is extremely necessary to make the world run today. When the World Wide Web was first invented in the 90’s, it very quickly changed the way that the entire world operated. Just 25 years later, the internet and everything it includes is the very thing that rules the world, runs the world, and is propelling the world into the future.
Every business that wants to be relevant and in operation has to play by the rules of the mighty internet. A business who refuses to get online and develop a website that is operable, appealing, and makes them sales will not stick around for long. Globalization is the present and future, so you as a web builder are pretty much guaranteed a solid job as long as you keep up on the changing trends and technology and you tap into the right things and tools to grow your business.
As a web builder, you’re always going to have different requirements and requests from a client to fulfill within the structure of a website. Say you have a client that specializes in selling art, and they ask you to incorporate links to all of their social media pages, as well as design a functional gallery of their artwork and have links that tell more about the artists (like Park West Gallery does on their LinkedIn page). You have to figure out how to integrate everything onto the website you’re building cohesively.
If you want to have success as a web builder, integration has to be your mantra. Everything on the internet operates through links that take you from one point of sale to the next. Your job is to design a web for your client that leads everything back to them and makes sense in the process. It’s easier said than done.
Though there are many things to focus on as a web designer, one of your first thoughts should be about the color scheme of the site you’re designing. Think about the client and what it is they’re promoting. Get yourself familiar with the psychology of colors, as colors have an impact on the mind that many don’t realize.
Avoid using the colors that are hard to look at on a screen, but don’t be afraid to use color to your advantage. When you understand color in a design setting as well as a psychological and marketing setting, your clients will be more than thrilled with the web page you design for them because you’re not only doing what they asked you, you’re playing the game that brings in the customers and gets them spending money.
Web design is a career that is in high demand right now. It will continue to be this way. If you tap into the importance of integration and you use color to your advantage, you’ll be a step ahead of the game and you’ll be making good money while others sit around pondering what they’re going to do with their lives as the world transforms in front of them.
