Custom Website Design – Benefits of WordPress with DzoneCG Craftsmanship

Website Design Gone Bad

When website design meets WordPress crash, your viewers get somewhat of a splash.

Every professional WordPress installation includes the benefits of a tried, durable and flexible website design front-end. However, WordPress reliability does not necessarily assure speedy site creation, consistent image branding or even basic common courtesy during the update process. Your newly installed WordPress website carries some measure of integrated consumer appeal, but not ever custom website design company interprets WP with the same measure of customer satisfaction.

For the most part, WP provides a reliable and durable Internet front-end. Thousands of free plugins make site customization simple and quick. Pre-designed website templates provide out-of-the-gate marketing. Professional plugins usually enhance the performance and outreach of the free plugin marketplace. And when it all works smoothly, a WordPress website, custom or standardized, can establish your company with a beautiful, solid and highly functional Internet presence.

However, the very flexibility that helps make WP an outstanding website design front-end also works against the package. Not all plugins work well together. And one never knows when an upgrade or a newly installed plugin will turn your website into an incompatible mud pit. Therefore, you must always be prepared for the inevitable. Sooner or later, every viable WP website will crash.

When your WordPress website crashes due to an incompatible plugin, you expect quick and reliable response from your web design team. But if the core installation lacks the backing of professional website designers, you may experience misery upon misery, disappointed visitors, and unnecessary loss of company profits. DzoneCG helps protect you from such problems.

From consultation to finished design, DzoneCG provides the backup and the skill-set to ensure that your WordPress website remains alive and active as well as beautiful and functional.

 

Dzone Custom Website Design, Reducing the Cost of WordPress Failure

According to the Scott McNulty from the University of Pennsylvania, the December 6th site crash at Tumbir exceeded 18 hours of loss service (1). For a blogging service that averages 2 million posts per day, 18 hours ammounts to some serious loss of customer goodwill. Sometimes correcting such errors involves a quick fix. Sometimes the fix can take days. Here’s an example of how a WordPress site typically goes down:

·    The Webmaster installs or upgrades a plugin that clashes with WP or another installed plugin
·    Users begin to notice generic errors or the site displays complete unavailability
·    The Webmaster and the coders seek to resolve the problem
·    Sometimes the fix is as simple as dumping the problem plugin
·    Sometimes the website design team must restore the entire WordPress database and file group
·    Meantime, customers take their business elsewhere.

According to David Andersen, Hari Balakrishnan and M. Frans Kaashoek at Carnegie Mellon University and MIT Computer Science, the availability rate of the modern U.S. public telephone system tops 99.99% (2). Yet the average Internet availability rate can fall as low as 95%. This natural downtime, due to ISP reliability, can degrade your user’s perception of your website performance. Substantial revenue losses often follow.

Aside from changing ISP resources, having the support of DzoneCG may be your best means of keeping your clients satisfied with your website performance. Without adequate and professional technical support, your WordPress experience can become a battlefield of frustrating phone calls, unanswered emails and missed business. Without a functional contact page, your client moves to another site.

Visual Communication - Dzone Website Graphic DesignVisual Communication Via Website Graphic Design

Few things in modern history so clearly illustrate the visual communication power of graphic design so well as the war against smoking. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a requirement for more pronounced visual graphic warnings on cigarette packages. In November of 2010, the push ramped up to include 72 specific advertisement options for 36 unique graphic warning images. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, custom designed graphic warning labels prompted a significant reduction in U.S. and Canadian cigarette consumption (1).

Custom graphic design defines the strength of visual communication. Pictures and images modify consumer beliefs and consumer buying habits. Studies designed to evaluate the effectiveness of visual warning labels on American smoking habits establish certain patterns associated with natural image recall. For example: The Viewing duration defines a positive link between eye fixations on advertisement and memory for brands (2)

Website design graphics that promote extended dwell time duration after the viewer first notices the images ensure greater correct brand recall. The quicker the image captures the reader, the longer the dwell time and the better the associated product recall.

Effective Use of Website Graphic Design Geometry in Visual Communication

In a field experiment performed by The ERIC Institute of Education Sciences and designed to examine advertising graphic design, the students noted that housewives tend to perceive advertising graphics with an emotional response. When describing the basic appeal of a specific design graphic, common words used by housewives include:

  • Active
  • Beautiful
  • Graceful
  • Happy
  • Interesting
  • AND Sincere.

Mature housewives also tended to supply favorable ad evaluation regardless of the geometric layout of the ad. However, students and other young people lean toward circular website graphic designs. Point to remember throughout the study is this: Favorable evaluation of the graphic design does not ensure a favorable viewer perception of the advertised product (3). Although the geometric design of a visual communications container presents a better showcase for the product, the actual contents within that container establish the critical appeal most important to your website goals and purposes.

Custom Website Graphics, A practical Fact of Modern Life

With the advent of the Windows computer operating system, Microsoft sealed the value of visual communications during digital activities. American’s are consumers of design graphics. From what you read to what you buy and from what you view at the movies to where you go on the Internet, custom graphics play a major role.

In website design, hiring graphic designers with advanced visual skills and intellectual understanding of how images, backgrounds and calls to action work as a single unit determines the success of the website. Modern visual communication professionals must possess:

  • Technical Understanding
  • Visual Communication Skills
  • Experience With Multimedia
  • An Eye for Graphics That Prompt Buyer Action
  • A Powerful Sense For Fluent Color Flow
  • A Firm Grasp on Emerging Communications Applications and Technologies
  • AND The Programming Know-how To Make A Seamless Website Experience.

Putting Website Graphics To Work For Your Website

Visual communication design combines research, analysis, conceptual planning, strategy, and practical realization. The best designed custom website graphics integrate cultural expectations and human factors with environmental context and contemporary technologies. Graphic design strategies merge:
