Brand Driven Website Graphics Design

Interaria is a brand driven Web design company. Establishing and further developing your company’s brand identity and marketing message for the Web and online media is our key focus and interest. We want to make sure to develop a solid Web design plan and strategy that builds upwards from the identified and set marketing goals and expectations vs. relying on some pre-existing or stereotypical ideas that we might have about your field of business. At Austin Web design company Interaria our focus is to establish concept and identity that can be carried through the entire site, building a consistent visual presence and brand message for the Web and preferable cross-media.

Austin Web Design Company Interaria sees solid brand messaging as an act of creating and sending out an invitation to join. In fact, according to our view, the consumer or target audience should not feel targeted but rather feel invited to join the company message and its value building promise. Solid brand messaging aims to understand and pinpoint the audience’s taste and needs, and create a message that they can recognize, identify, distinguish, notice, and ultimately choose and want to join. What ever the style and content of the message, it should always come across confident and consistent in order to rise up from the noise of other competing and often compelling messages in a potentially very crowded market place and saturated business environment.

Five Design Principles for Effective Website Layout Design

Austin Web Design Company Interaria regards that designing an effective website layout requires establishing a balanced synergy among several design principles. We have modeled these principles below into five clusters:

1) Modern "genre" (concept and style) driven layout design principle: Establishing a layout style that is valued in the current stream of online media. Strictly avoiding dated "old" layout concepts.

2) Industry driven layout design principle: Understanding industry specific concepts and styles.

3) Demographics driven layout design principle: Basing layout design concepts on the understanding of the visitor’s age, sex, location and surfing behavior.

4) Brand identity driven layout design principle: A) Establishing creative ways to integrate company’s (client’s) identity elements to the layout; B) Approaching the layout design as a brand differentiating identity factor in re-enforcing the brand.

5) Hardware and software driven layout design principle: Taking into account several technical and functional criteria such as the age and type of computers that will be used to surf the website, use of mobile devices, typically used resolution settings, importance of overall visual impact, requirements to change an established scale in the future.

Layout design provides walls for the house — it is a highly significant phase in the process of creating effective customized Web media that has a long online lifespan.

Web Architecture Design Brings In Aesthetic, Functional and Technical Balance

Offering expert Web design and Web development and database services in Austin, Interaria regards Web architecture design as an important phase in establishing creative balance in all Web site elements, and ultimately in the final product. Web architecture design develops and tests our project files against three criteria: aesthetic (visual), functional and technical.

For instance, let’s say we are to design a call-to-action icon that includes text: The aesthetic criterion would be that the call-to-action icon looks visually appealing and engaging to tricker action, and is balanced and parallel to the company’s brand identity; the functional criterion would be that the web site visitor finds the information on the icon relevant and can easily read the text and click on the link(s); the technical criterion would be that the call-to-action icon can be programmed with modern Web programming language(s), and that there is a clear technical plan in place with regards to how the icon can be updated. In essence, a solid web site architecture is advocacy for all three criteria. If one of the criteria is not fully met, Interaria takes the web site element or section under the development back to the drawing board and further develops that feature until it meets the standards outlined in each criterion.

Austin Web Design Company Interaria regards that web sites designed and developed against these three criteria will be more successful in engaging customers and establishing a solid platform for marketing and informing. The larger the scale for the web development project, the more of importance it is to go through this process in detail for establishing Web media that has a long, organic online lifespan.

We boost aesthetic, functional and technical balance with our step-by-step development process by:

Step 1: Basing Web designs on real marketing ideas and understanding on the client’s brand identity. Providing detailed Web design files that illustrate the look and feel of the web site in detail before any coding work begins.

Step 2: Utilizing only the very latest Web coding languages. Coding database driven Web applications for dynamic customized user-experiences. Providing custom Content Management solutions.

Step 3: Critically testing all developed features. Always encouraging feedback. Launching the final Internet media product only upon a complete and clear approval by the client and the entire Interaria Web design & development team.

Website Growth Strategy

It is quite common that when we are proposed with a website design & development project, the project begins with an idea of a modest site map and page structure. As the project evolves and as we and the client get more and more inside the project (vs. assessing it from the outside) the need for the site growth becomes apparent. If this happens already within few months, one can understand that an active company needs a website that is developed on a dynamic framework and based on solid planning and strategy to ensure site growth in the coming months (and years).

Website’s content development and growth is also important in order to maintain higher postions in search engine rankings. Since the launch of Google’s recent search indexing engine Google Caffeine, Google appreciates fresh new relevant text content.

Specifically, Interaria’s Web architecture design — in the contect of solid Web site content and page growth — is planned to:

  • Create Menu bar designs that can be easily expanded with new links to new web pages. For instance, when designing side menu bars for a website, Interaria doesn’t lock the graphics but makes sure that the graphics expand along with the new link content.
  • Make sure that new much longer titles will not create visual or functional problems. Develop a proper scale and spatial dimensions for content placements.
  • Make sure that the developed content management system is equipped to handle uploading much longer pieces of text than currently available.
  • Make sure that the client has an ability to change text and title styles according to new needs.
  • Make sure that all slide shows and visual conten can be updated and / or expanded.
  • Enable the Web design client to generate new web pages without any coding skills by using the Interaria CMS (certain restrictions apply).

Dynamic Web Architecture Design for Interactive User Experience

User experience is a subjective feeling, outcome of experiencing website’s identity, layout and architecture design. Dynamic Web Architecture Design places its focus specifically on this outcome by emphasizing interactivity specified by the user’s actions.

A growing number of consumers are accessing Internet and visiting websites via iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices. Web media can be specifically designed and developed for this group of users by optimizing the content and message according to the iPhone’s framework for content and navigation structure.

Typically an iPhone portal (version) of a website is automatically launched when checking a website via an iPhone. Taking into account the size of the iPhone’s visual interface and navigation logic, mobile media versions are often lighter with Web content and follow a strong structural logic. Generally a visitor is provided also with a link to the mother site to view full content via an internet browser.

An alternative or additional route is to develop an iPhone application. Typically iPhone applications feature data driven content designed to interact with the user. The producer of an iPhone "app" needs to submit the application to Apple’s application library where it can then be downloaded by the consumer. It may be a challenge to direct a consumer to download an app but once downloaded, the consumer loyalty and frequency of use may be greater due to the significant placement for the app on the iPhone screen interface.

Social media sites and applications provide a powerful platform to connect and engage with customers / consumers / clients / piers. In the beginning things are new and exciting: new followers are showing up in Twitter; Facebook friends feel very supportive; blog posts are fun to write; new applications and integrations such as Digg, StumbleUpon, SlideShare are exciting to discover; Google Caffeine picks up posted social media content fast.

At some point – most likely – just like with exercising, the first excitement fades: new ideas turn harder to come up with, and other "more important" or "more intellectual" work starts eating time and questioning the overall motivation – perhaps categorizing social media participation as gullible, unimportant or just pure entertainment. The mind has its tricks, it turns around coins, and plays for our immediate comfort.

To counter attack and in order to stay in the path of active social media participation it is important to create a routine, hold yourself accountable and track results. Interaria’s Social Media Optimization Kit is designed to approach social media participation from a practical standpoint, and strengthen the lines for commitment and goal setting.

As web developers we can optimize client’s social media applications and interfaces from a technical point of view but our client – or the person or marketing department in charge of the client’s social media content – has to be fully integrated into the process. What eventually sets the company apart from others is the active systematic participation itself; blogging every Tuesday and Friday, tweeting every day, following and commenting interesting web content, showing expertise and commitment. It is our commitment, as social media optimizers, to make sure that our Austin Web design & development clients are not only informed and educated about their choices but that they also have the tools and set goals to make their social media participation a pleasant task (and yes, a routine) that can lead to successful results.

Our "kit" is a client’s workbook to break social media into smaller, more manageable pieces: it documents motivation, goals, participation activity, and newly created content and links. We meet with our client on a regular basis to go through the progress documented in the workbook, discuss new ideas, and implement any technical changes. In 2 - 3 months of time, we’ll have a good source for tracking the client’s social media participation activity that can be analyzed not only in the context of set marketing goals, but also in the context of the client’s search engine ranking results and client’s site’s traffic. Just like with exercising, some strategies and plans will work better than others. A systematic approach brings clarity to the chosen paths, enforcing goal setting and clarifying direction.

Contact Austin Web design company Interaria at (512) 300-9286, not only for your company’s SEO needs but also for SMO. A well planned active SMO can also support your company’s search engine ranking goals.
