Site Design and Engineering
Although many sites are visually appealing, not all function with the same efficiency.
Individuals and firms specializing
in graphics design can create beautiful websites, but many have trouble creating
efficient and user-friendly experiences.
Many things must be considered when engineering a website or web application. Not
only should it be aesthetically pleasing, but it should be laid out so that visitors
who are not familiar with your site can quickly and easily find the information
they are looking for. The site should also be designed so that maintenance and scaling
can be easily accomplished in the future. The site should load quickly and consistently
in any major browser or operating system.
Some companies do a poor job of implementing controls and plug-ins used to display
media and other active content. This can cause sites to perform so poorly for clients
with slow internet connections, that these clients simply quite using the site.
