These days everybody and their cat is a web designer, a friend of a friend who “knows computers” can put a website together for you… badly.
The underlying issue behind this I believe in many ways is a problem that I see on a regular basis working with new clients; which is the limited knowledge they have on what constitutes a good website. The majority believe that if the website looks pretty, then its a good website! This as many good web designers will tell you, is not the whole truth.
This article is intended to help people that are looking to commission a web design project to identify what constitutes a good website, to ask the right questions and to analyse the work of their chosen array of designers to establish which designer can produce the best website possible for the budget.
