How to communicate with your web designer

As with all professional relationships, communication is key. Finding the best way to portray your business’s website vision will set you up for success with your web designer in Denver!

Follow this simple tips when you’re communicating with your web designer:

Give as clear of instructions as you can.

Being as specific as possible in your initial design meeting will give your web designer a great head start on your draft concepts.

Unfortunately, phrases like “make it pop” or “be creative” won’t get your designer too far from the start. By coming into your meeting with examples of other websites you like, and why you like them, your designer will get a visual example of elements you like.

From there, web designers will be able to incorporate those visuals into something that will be authentic for your business.

Additionally, examples of websites you dislike will prevent your designer from creating elements that you’d prefer to avoid.

By providing such examples, your designer will be able to customize a first draft concept for your website that is geared more towards the things you like.

Be transparent.

Financials and budgets can be difficult to converse about. However, it’s a realistic part of the business that requires transparency on both sides. From you as a client, and us as web designers in Denver.

Additionally, be upfront about the deadline you’re aiming for and your web designer will asses if it’s attainable. By setting realistic expectations at the beginning of your design process, you can avoid design and launch push-backs.

Keep in mind, while the design process relies heavily on the web designer themself, the design review and revision requests rely solely on the client. A web designer can only move as fast as the revisions that come in.

Be open-minded.

When you hire a professional web designer in Denver, you’re not only utilizing a creative business, you’re investing in the years of experience they have in the industry. As it’s been said before, “If you think the cost of good design is expensive. You should look at the cost of bad design.”

A professional web designer has reasoning behind the elements within the designs they’re presenting to you. Some might be user experience based and some might be search engine based.

Trust your designers professional opinion as a web design is only as successful as the customers that use it. And your web designer most certainly wants to take pride in what they’ve created for you and your web visitors.
