Core Web Design Principles
Design can be a major asset or major liability for your site. At First Scribe, our goal is to prevent Shiny Ball Syndrome—falling in love with a glitzy web design, then wondering three months later why it isn’t working. That’s why all of our web design work fulfills four core business principles:
We don’t care about web design awards or “design for design’s sake.” We define good design by its ability to deliver maximum ROI. That means taking a goal-oriented approach in which every element of your site serves the same purpose—be it brand awareness, lead generation or eCommerce sales.
If analog real estate is about “location, location, location,” then digital real estate is about “user experience, user experience, user experience.” That includes—but goes well beyond—basic usability. In other words, we know where to put an “Add to Cart” button, but we also know how to make sure a customer’s experience on your site is equally appealing on a laptop, tablet and phone.
You’ll often find web designers who care more about demonstrating their own tastes than reflecting your brand. Not here. First Scribe’s designs reflect your values and culture. We go out of our way to make your value proposition speak specifically to your customers. And we know how to appeal to both problem- and solution-seekers.
Our lives are dominated by four screens: phones, tablets, laptops and TVs. And according to Google, more than two thirds of us use multiple devices sequentially to shop online. First Scribe understands that digital behavior knows no boundaries, so we always design with that in mind.
