Website Design in South Africa
Website Design in South Africa is something of an enigma. There are an overwhelming number of companies (and individuals) that claim they’re able to provide quality website design services in South Africa, but simply cannot. We see evidence of this at Robot Dwarf on a near daily basis, with potential customers who come to us after a bad experience with another provider. What can you do to make sure you don’t suffer from this uncertainty that exists in the South African website design industry?
Website design in South Africa is not just about costs
Cost should not be your only determining factor when looking for a website design solution. Rather choose to look at a number of factors as mentioned in a previous post on this blog – Best Website Design for your business.
Some factors to consider:
- Understand your objectives – know what you want!
- Do the research – look at portfolios and past clients…
- Participate in the process – don’t just passively wait to receive a design that you had no input in!
Website design in South Africa can be world class
There are website designers in South Africa that are able to produce world class websites. You need to keep the following in mind when attempting to find a high quality designer:
- Go with a web design company and not an individual – freelancers tend to disappoint regularly!
- Make sure you work with a company that has been operating for more than a year – a track record of quality is a good start.
- Choose Robot Dwarf as your provider…we’re joking of course but we definitely feel that we fit into the box of a world class website design company.
Website design is both an art and a science
This is a profound statement and is extremely true. Don’t choose an Albert Einstein to build your website – you need a balance of creativity and genius. Rather choose a Leonardo da Vinci to build your website for you. Choose a company that understands the importance of the user interface, as well as the functionality.
