Navigating online website creation tools and templates can be cumbersome and time consuming for business owners and their staff. Hiring a trained graphic and web designer to assist with creating a top notch layout with the same online tools and templates reduces production downtime and increases sales potential.
Whale Works Design is now a partner with BigCommerce, Shopify and Adobe Business Catalyst for the creation of ecommerce websites. BigCommerce, Shopify and Business Catalyst are online ecommerce utilities that have platforms for sellers and designers to work together.
The designer can work through the details and web controls for the site layout — customizing the web code as needed. The seller can interface with the website enough to be able to update product information, generate reports for sales and inventory and assemble client mailing lists.
The ecommerce site sales and product information can also be integrated with the sales system being used within the brick and mortar store.
We are excited about this new venture and look forward to working with local businesses on ecommerce websites.

I was asked to speak to a small networking group for my Chamber of Commerce about the design business. I reviewed basic concepts of
design work in relation to social media and web design.
Some points which I stressed for design when marketing for business
on social media:
These are tips which I discussed for website design for business:
I asked the audience review questions on the topics covered with a reward of a company t-shirt for correct answers. Great interest in the material was reflected in the lengthy after-presentation conversation.
Recently, I submitted a proposal requested for a web page design.
The potential client inquired why my proposal was higher than
his other proposals for the same job. My proposal included:
High turnaround production companies that specialize in filling plug-in web templates may not offer the same custom, individualized services
as a design firm or freelance graphic designer. The resulting product may not reach the targeted audience, produce the desired client feedback or effectively sell the featured items or services. The web page may need another redesign much sooner to correct these mistakes resulting in higher overall production costs.
Design project costs can directly reflect the quality of the product
to be delivered.
Here are some topics to remember when creating an effective
digital user experience:
