Here is an excerpt from an excellent article on proper website design from the Berkley.

Good website design isn't just about pretty colors, groovy graphics, and knocking out code with software like Dreamweaver. While a terrible look can certainly kill a site, even the fanciest design can't help a site that doesn't provide reliable information of value to visitors in a sensible and easy-to-use format. Good website design requires substantial planning, and takes into consideration not just visual design but also content, tone and the way information is arranged, as well as accessibility and usability for people with varying degrees of ability. None of these things are developed in isolation: all of them ideally support one another fort lauderdale website designer.

Content ultimately is the standard by which your website's usefulness will be judged. To understand what your content should be, start by asking yourself these questions fort lauderdale website designer.

Who is my website for? The answer to this question defines your target audience. Typically, it might be "prospective graduate students" or "our department staff" or "current students and faculty" or even "the news media and the general public." You can certainly have more than one target audience. Avoid making your reach too broad or too narrow, defining your target audience as either "everyone, everywhere" or "me."

What do they want from the website? A good way to figure out the answer to this question is to ask. Track down a current student, a prospective graduate student, or a member of the faculty and get direct feedback. Whatever you do, don't believe for an instant that an on-line recreation of your print brochure will be adequate. And don't fall into the trap of assuming your website users will be interested in something just because it's "cool." A two-minute Flash animation opening sequence is interesting only once (at most), and becomes an annoyance when what you really want to do is find out quickly whether your faculty adviser has office hours on Thursday fort lauderdale website designer.

What do I want from the website? Your own goals for the site are important too. Think in terms of what you want to make happen with your web site, as well as what you might want to keep from happening. If you want to motivate prospective graduate students to apply, think about how to make it easy for them. If you want to make sure current students don't tie up the department phone line asking who is teaching Research Methodologies next semester, what time the Friday colloquia start, or how to get a computer account, how can you make sure they can get the information they need?

What can I realistically provide and maintain? This is perhaps the most important point of all. Unless you are one of the lucky few with staff dedicated to updating your website, you will want to think long and hard about this question. Current students might like a weekly "department round-up," but can you commit the time and resources necessary to create a new feature every week? Base your decision on how critical it is to your mission and goals to provide the feature or information, balanced by your time and staffing resource realities fort lauderdale website designer.
