What is Web Design

Simply put, web design refers to the process of creating the visuals for websites. There are different areas of that you need to know as you plan for your next project. They include:

  • graphic design
  • interface design
  • user experience Design
  • authoring
  • search engine optimisation

It can also be defined as the process of

  • conceptualising
  • planning
  • creation

of a collection of electronic files that go on to determine the:

  • layout
  • text styles
  • colours
  • graphics
  • structure
  • images

and other interactive features that together make up your web application and how visitors interact with it.

 


Importance of Good Web Design

  • Satisfy your customers:
    A professional design is about meeting the needs of your site’s visitors. It’s about conveying your message in the shortest time possible without confusing your visitors with unnecessary design items.
  • Convince search engines to rank up:
    Search engines don’t look at websites the same way we humans do. No matter how good your site looks aesthetically, if it’s not designed in a manner that makes it easy for search engines to crawl it, then don’t expect it to show up in the search engine result pages.
  • Your website sets the first impression:
    Every time a potential customer searches for your business online, the first place they’ll be directed to is your website. It’s the first interaction they have with your business.
  • Helps you gain a competitive edge:
    Nothing you do will be enough to knock off your competition when your site is poorly designed.
  • To avoid Technical Glitches:
    Any small technical glitch on your site is enough to turn scores of the visitors that check you out away. Broken links, dropped images, and lengthy loading times are among the issues that a professional designer will be helping you remedy.

 


Key Elements

Every designer is unique in their own unique way of approaching this in terms of the UX and UI. There’s, however, a standard checklist of concepts and items you have no option but to get right.

anatomy of good web design in singapore

 

They include:

  • Content:
    It’s impossible to imagine a website without content. Not at such a time when search engines are out to reward higher SEO scores to sites with good content.
  • Usability:
    Your website is either usable or not. You can’t force it on your users.
  • Navigation:
    Users should be able to figure everything out in a split second, without putting too much thought into the process.
  • Aesthetics:
    There’s no denying that part of the reason you’re hiring a web designer is that you’re looking to create a visually stunning website.
  • Visibility:
    Aesthetics matter, but they’re not the be-all-end-all of a great design. Even more important is that search engines are able to crawl your site and index it appropriately in the SERPs.
  • Interaction:
    Your website isn’t some lifeless piece of object. It must engage with your target audience, communicate back when they reach out for something.

Common Techniques

It is all about creating a website that your users can quickly figure their way around. None of the users has to play a guessing game while interacting with it.

Here are a few techniques that you might be required to implement:

  • Keep everything simple
    Web design requires you to err on the side of simplicity. Your concentration should be on the things that are relevant to the user. Anything that falls outside that dominion should be considered unnecessary.
  • Choose a unique style and typography
    It’s possible to brand yourself through typography. You can use it to make yourself distinguishable from your competitors.
  • Make it predictable
    Save your customers the trouble of thinking too hard while trying to figure some things out. Your navigation buttons must be intuitive. Just looking at them should be enough to crack their use.
  • Focus on the user
    Learn to wear the mind of your users. What do you think makes a great design to them?
  • Web animation
    Always bear in mind that your users value their time more than anything else. If your site loads as slow as a snail that’s run out of slime, then it’s to be expected that a majority of them will leap out.

 


Pros of Using a Singapore-based Agency

  • Cost efficiency in human resources
    Web design and development are usually short term affairs. You do not need to bear the full-time staff salaries, CPF, welfare and operating costs as well as worry about career progression.
  • Cost efficiency in operating costs
    Many firms already have computers, software, licences, bulk hosting and script which are co-shared by all their clients so you do not have to spend tens of thousands to purchase these
  • Shortened time to market
    These firms have already developed and curated libraries of ready codes which they can adapt for you; so you save a lot of time and money developing from scratch
  • Experience
    Experienced outsourced firms have already completed thousands of projects across a wide spectrum of industries – so you can be spared the many months of expensive trial and error
  • UX / UI know how
    Experienced firms have already accumulated a ton of experience in designing the UX / UI needed for the proper impression and usability of your website thereby sparing you months of troubleshooting
  • SEO and content development
    Many firms have SEO and content experts in-house or they partner with which will spare you more work in hiring more staff
  • Scalability
    You will be able to scale up or scale down your work and costs as the project progresses, something which is difficult if you are employing in-house

Structure of  Team

Here is a typical makeup of the team structure:

  • Account Manager:

    An account manager strives to strike a balance between your business requirements and results. Your requirements as a client don’t limit their area of activity. They’ll look into your instructions and requirements, and point you in the right direction.

  • Project Manager:

    A Project Manager is tasked with the role of consolidating everyone’s input. It’s their job to ensure everything is delivered on time, and that it corresponds to your vision and requirements. It’s their job to ensure everything flows according to plan, and that all the timeframes and requirements are met.

  • UX/UI Designer:

    Your web development project doesn’t need two separate teams of UX/UI designers. Instead, they need a team that understands these two processes and their role in the design process. Larger companies try to separate the two by hiring both a UX and UI specialist.

  • Web Designer:

    This could be a graphic designer with web experience or a full-stack developer who has built enough skills to create stunning web applications or websites. Their role is to strike a balance between the contribution made by a UX designer and UI designers, without leaning much on either side.

  • Software Specialist:

    Otherwise referred to as a web developer, a software specialist is the party responsible for writing well-designed, testable code using the right mix of software development practices. They’re responsible for creating the user interface and website layout using standard HTML/CSS practices.

  • Database Specialist:

    A database specialist is the person responsible for supporting your business operations by organising all of your data. It’s their responsibility to make sure your data is not only safe but also properly stored and backed up.

  • SEO Expert:

    The SEO expert is the first person from the marketing team that you’ll have to involve in the project. It’s their responsibility to ensure your website is SEO-friendly, which they do by prioritising the end-user. They’re responsible for doing keyword searches and ensuring your website is optimised for search engines.

  • Content Developer:

    A content specialist works with text. Their job is to create content that corresponds to the voice of your brand. In most cases, they’ll be working with an SEO specialist to optimise your website’s content for search engines, especially Google. They’re also the party responsible for populating your website with written information, writing blog posts, and developing a content strategy.  

  • QA Specialist:

    A Quality Assurance (QA) Specialist is tasked with the role of ensuring your overall web project meets the required web standards. They’re responsible for testing every single aspect of your web project and ensuring that all the requirements are met. They’ll draw up a testing plan, with web developers expected to send them each version of their web products for assessment.

However the inclusion of the above roles depend on the complexity and scope of your web project.

 


How to Choose the Right Web Designer in Singapore

You can use the following guidelines to select the best agency in the market:

  • Visit the agency’s website:
    The agency’s website is their main selling point. It is an indication that they can do a fantastic job for you if you hire them. There are several things you can check on their website to confirm this. Among them are speed, images used, colour scheme, and navigation.
  • Look at their portfolio page:
    While looking at the agency’s site is an excellent first step, it may not always give you all the information you need to know. However, going through their previous work will.
  • Check out the complete list of services they provide:
    Nowadays, it is difficult to find companies that focus only on website design. This is because it is just the first step of developing an online presence.
  • Get their pricing:
    Some agencies package the design and other deliverables while others provide them as separate services. Others understand the need for SEO and offer it together with SEO as one package.
  • Ask about the use of a content management system (CMS):
    Content is king. One of the best ways of turning leads into sales is by producing content for your site. This content educates users about your products and also gives you the chance to display your expertise in a subject matter.
  • Responsive design:
    91% of Singaporeans use smartphones to access the internet, 71% uses laptops/desktops while 42% use tablets. You need to account for all of these when designing your website.
  • Test their knowledge of your company:
    An agency that wants to design a website for you should know intricate details of your business. They should know your target audience, your competitors, and your unique factor.
  • Latest design trends:
    Discoveries are regularly made and incorporated into websites to give them a fresh look and feel.
  • The availability of the contact person:
    Many agencies typically brainstorm a project as a team to come up with ideas that will make your website unique. However, the design work is usually left to two or three people in the agency.
  • Customer support after the end of the project:
    Many businesses like to run promotions and giveaways to improve the brand’s image and increase engagement with clients.
  • Updates to the website:
    Businesses usually discover features they need to add to their website only when they start running it. Some functions are vital and need to be added immediately while others can wait until a later time.

 


Customer Journey

  • Research, Goal, and Planning
    Before developing your website or redesigning it, a good agency will first try to understand your business and the goals you have. They’ll invest their time in understanding your requirements and everything else that you’d like to be included in the site.
  • Sitemap
    After gleaning for all this information, the next thing they’ll do is organise it all in a sitemap. A site map operates a lot like an organisation chart for systematising all your web content. A site map tries to clear confusion and logically organise everything in such a way that your users will have an easy time intuitively figuring out your site.

  • Wireframes
    A site map organises the information of your entire website. Wireframes organise it at the page level. They’re like the blueprint that determines where you place your content on your website.

  • Design
    A website’s design is fashioned from wireframes. In most cases, the design of a site is selected based on the requirements that a client has.

  • Web Development
    This is the last stage of the designing process. After you approve a design, the project will then be handed to a web developer who’ll begin coding it.


Best Practices

  • Be Consistent with Branding
    Branding is all about telling your business story. Your website has to tell the story accurately, without reinforcing wrong ideas or evoking misguiding feelings about your brand.
  • Leave Plenty of Negative or White Space between Elements
    Every element on your website should have some space to breathe. There should be no congestion or items appearing like they’re crammed in one area. Use margins to increase the space between web copies, images, and other elements.
  • Reduce the Choices You Offer
    Bombarding your site’s visitors with so many options doesn’t do them any good. It only sends them in state of analysis paralysis instead. Where you have to offer your visitors an overwhelming number of options, the least you could do is suggest a Course of Action (CTA).
  • Apply the Rule of Thirds
    The same rule of thirds that applies in photography and fine art still applies in design. This rule demands that you use an overlay of two horizontal and two vertical lines that are equally spaced.
  • Use Breadcrumbs
    Breadcrumbs are the signs that remind your visitors where they are and where their current page falls in your site’s navigation.

 


6 Trends to Embrace For The New Internet Audience

Here are some of the prevailing trends that have gained tremendous popularity here in Singapore and abroad.

  1. Personalisation
    Personalisation starts early in the design process, right from when you start conducting user testing with actual people who will visit your website. When you start developing the sitemap and the design starts taking shape, you can expect to see content-specific page adaptations and dynamic content that caters to specific target audiences and markets.
  2. Voice User Interface (VUI)
    Voice search is being revolutionised by audio, which is growing and becoming smarter and more sophisticated. It will start providing better-optimised search results for content while evolving to feel conversational and more sophisticated.
  3. Machine Learning and Chatbots
    Website users today have shown a preference for quick answers and instant feedback. Chatbots are efficient in that they collect feedback and take user queries to grow and improve. This makes for more personalised user experiences.
  4. Augmented Reality (AR)
    One of the biggest and most interesting challenges will be augmented reality. Some companies are already using the medium to promote products in a new first-person experience. The trend is expected to grow, more so when trying to understanding how products, furniture, and clothing will fit into a user’s life.
  5. Card Layouts and Minimal Interfaces
    Minimalism is a prominent  trend that you can expect to stand the test of time due to its easy usability and cleanliness. It is more important with the ongoing shift to mobile browsing. With that said, brands should stop treating mobile users as an afterthought, since statistics show that mobile has surpassed desktop as the preferred internet access point.
  6. Illustration and Geometry
    You will not need to do much research to start noticing more animated iconography and a geometry-based focus in design elements and loaders. These animations will give your web pages a personality and make it feel livelier.

 


Average Cost of Hiring Web Designers in Singapore

  • Per Hour Basis
    In Singapore, the cost tends to vary between the standard range of $25 and $80.
  • Customised or Package Pricing
    There’s the entry-level package, which costs about $3,000; and the premium level for standard customised schemes, which can go for up to $80,000.

 


Popular Types and Costs of Websites in Singapore

  • E-commerce Website Design
    Some developers will be charging you a listing fee of S$20 to S$30 per product. So, assuming you’re listing 100 products, that amounts to an extra S$2, 000 to S$3, 000. There are grants in Singapore which can pay for part of the cost.
  • Corporate Website Design
    The cost of designing a corporate website in Singapore varies from firm to firm. But generally, the cost can range from S$2, 000 to S$100, 000 depending on several factors such as the number of pages that you wish to create, style of design, copywriting services offered, SEO placement, Database Integration, eCommerce Functionality, CMS choice, and responsiveness.
  • Branding Website Design
    The cost of designing a branding website will also vary depending on several factors – functionality, style, number of pages, and the amount of copywriting required.
    But typically, the cost of designing a professionally done branding website ranges from S$5, 000 to S$20, 000.

 


Other Types of Websites

  • Entertainment Websites
    This category encompasses all websites that offer entertainment value. They include humour sites such as Buzzfeed or webcomics such as xkcd.
  • Portfolio
    These sites showcase your past work in the hopes of winning more clients.
  • Media Websites
    These are dedicated to collecting news, gossips, or general stories. They include newspapers and magazines.
  • Brochure Website
    If you need a corporate or business website, and you don’t want to invest a lot in it, then a better alternative would be to go with a brochure website.
  • Non-Profit Websites
    These are websites for non-profit organisations. Most of them do feature a donation button that visitors can use to donate to the organisation or for a given cause.
  • Educational Websites
    Websites representing educational facilities and institutions fall within this category.
  • Infopreneurs Websites
    Infopreneur websites bridge the gap between ecommerce and business websites. They’re a unique type of business website that focuses on selling informational products such as videos, ebooks, and tutorials.
    Personal Websites
    Not everyone is money-oriented. Some people create websites to share their thoughts and nothing more. This type of website can come in the form of a blog, vlog, minutiae or photo diary blog.
  • Community forums
    As the name suggests, this is a website you create for your users to engage with one another and share ideas and suggestions on specific topics or aspects of life.

    Experience is key. You will want to find out is if they’ve handled a similar project before.
  2. What Kind of Websites Have they Been Designing?
    With this question, you’re interested in finding a professional with the broadest range of experience, who has handled everything — starting from simple micro-site to a complex SaaS project or e-commerce site.
  3. What’s their Procedure for Designing a Website
    This is the question that’s going to help you establish on whether you’re dealing with a newbie designer or a real pro with years of experience.
  4. Do they have a Past Client that can Throw in a Positive Word for them?
    A reliable agency will have all the much-needed reviews and recommendations. But that’s NOT enough because it’s possible to fake it up. What you need is to hear it straight off the horse’s mouth, from one of their past clients who’s willing to step up and vouch for them.
  5. Will you be able to secure the best  Designer?
    Reliable designers are one of the most sought after people. Their work sells, and more clients will, therefore, be flocking in to get their sites designed.
  6. Have they ever been involved with Projects that have Similar Goals to Yours?
    The designer you decide to go with should be in a position to see where your business is headed. They should be able to see your vision and be able to hinge you closer to it.
  7. How Long do they take to complete a single project from start to finish?
    You must have a deadline and if you’re going to work with a particular company, it’s crucial that they respect you enough to observe your deadline.
  8. Will I be Assigned a Project Manager?
    Each member of the team will be assigned a different role to play, but there needs to be someone on the top to make sure that all the effort directed towards the project are well-streamlined.
  9. How Many Rounds of Revisions am I allowed to Request?
    Just in case you want something changed or fixed, is there a limit as to the number of times you’re allowed to request for revisions or edits. A competent profressional will even allow you to request for revision with every stage of the designing process — instead of waiting for the entire project to be completed to contact them with a list of things that you want them to consider editing
  10. What are their Payment Terms?
    Many agencies and designers, especially here in Singapore, would be requesting for you to make a deposit first before they can get down to work, after which you clear the remaining balance upon project completion.

 


Website Design vs. Website Development

  • A web designer is only involved with drafting the plan of the websites, after which they hand it over to a web developer who codes everything and makes it function.
  • Web development, on the other hand, refers to the process of taking a design and transforming it into a fully functional website using programming languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and so on.
  • Many of the agencies named above have both in their headcount. So it will depend on whether you want to have a great design or prefer to have a dependable and powerful backend. Some companies actually hire a creative agency and a web development firm separately.
  • In essence, it is an all-encompassing term for a website’s usability and aesthetics. Its key components are UX and UI, where the former focuses on usability, and the latter focuses on its aesthetics.
  • Web developers, on the other hand, are responsible for taking a design and transforming it into a fully functional website. They’re responsible for giving the static website design life by hard coding it using various programming languages, including HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, and a long list of other languages.

Full Fledged Agency vs. Freelancers

  1. Integrity:
    Knowing the background and reputation of the people you hire for the job should, therefore, be of utmost importance. When hiring a freelancer, it can be impossible sometimes to judge their professional background because the only proof is their word of mouth.
  2. Value of your Money:
    While it is natural to think that hiring the services of a freelancer is the most cost-effective way of doing things, it might not be. Most start-up entrepreneurs tend to believe that going cheap is the way to go.  However, by failing to look at the bigger picture, they compromise a lot.
  3. Latest SEO Requirements:
    SEO is the Holy Grail to a successful website. Knowing this, any entrepreneur realizes the need for hiring SEO experts in Singapore who understand the latest SEO requirements and will guarantee that your website gets the desired results in the shortest time possible.
  4. Quality of Services:
    Professional agencies always follow a workflow procedure as illustrated below;
    Strategy– they first plan based on practical research of the project
    Design– the website’s overall outlook and customization is defined
    Build– top designers in Singapore convert the blueprint into real designs. Core features and extra content is also established at this point.
    Verification– good designers will test the web site’s performance on various browsers and devices whereas freelancers tend to “wing it” and not check
    Unveiling– the website is launched after the final touches have been made
    Evaluation– the site’s performance is monitored to detect and correct any irregularities in time.
  5. Resources:
    Website design in Singapore thrives on world-class resources such as add-ons, tools, and web development kits. Top agencies in Singapore have access to these resources but not freelancers.
  6. Access to More Professionals:
    To deliver tailored services, professional agencies work with a highly experienced team that has expertise in every sector. They are highly qualified in graphic design, WordPress design, programming, and high-quality content, which is a big challenge to 57% of Singaporean entrepreneurs.

Agree? Disagree with our choices? If you feel we said something in error or we missed out including your web design firm – write to us here: [email protected].

FYI we also match clients with the top web designers. Let us know what you need.

What Does A Web Designer Do

A web designer conceptualises the entire look and feel of a website including the colour scheme, the wireframes, the placement of the images, content and other interactive elements.

How Much Does Web Design Cost

A professional agency designer will typically charge $200-$500 per page. So a website of 10 pages can cost around $2000-$5000. This does not include the coding (functionality) which is the domain of web developers.

How Do I Choose A Web Design Firm

Look at their portfolio. Query them on whether they understand your industry and your business objectives. Ask them about their project team makeup. Make sure they have a comprehensive project scope with time line, and rights to redrafting at least 3 times for each page – all properly agreed in writing.

How Long Does A Typical Website Project Take

Simple customised WordPress or other basic CMS websites normally take 3-4 months. Designed and coded from scratch websites can take 8-12 months to complete realistically.
