Web Design Companies 

Having a great website in today’s digital world is vital.

The market is competitive, and a poor website can leave a negative impression on your audience.

In fact, 89% of consumers choose to shop with a competitor after a poor user experience (WebFX, 2020).

If you’ve decided you want to create a website or revamp your existing one, you may be wondering, “How do I get started?”

Web designers have the wonderful ability to be able to understand your brand and translate that into a beautiful design that functions seamlessly.

You can also go down the DIY route, but there’s a big difference in creating a website yourself and hiring a professional if you have limited web design knowledge (but more on that in a minute).

Who needs web design services?

Web design is for any business that has an online presence. 

You don’t necessarily need to create a website to hire web design services, as your social media profiles and online accounts can also benefit from a sprinkle of professional web design to improve your bottom line.

Why should I hire a web design company rather than DIY?

While it's possible to create your own site with the plethora of tools available today, here are some reasons why you should consider hiring a professional.

  • Custom features: You might have awesome custom feature ideas for your site that require teeth-pulling coding. If you don’t have technical web design knowledge, do you have the time to research how to create specific design elements?
  • Bring your vision to life: Web designers are experts in knowing how to bring the concepts in your head to life.
  • Save time: Web design requires commitment and there will be ongoing reviews, edits and reworks. Do you have the time to do that as well as run your business?
  • Competitive advantage: It’s fierce competition out there on the world wide web and you can usually distinguish the websites that haven’t been created by a designer. Web designers know what to do to get your website on the level playing field or exceed your competitors.

What are the different types of web designers?

If you want to create a complex website that performs sophisticated functions, the standard team of a web/graphic designer and a web developer may not be enough. 

When it comes to creating web applications, you will also need user interface and user experience designers who specialise in using web technologies to deliver powerful functionality in a way that is simple and easy to use.

What is a web designer?

A web designer creates graphical designs and websites and is also responsible for the functional elements.

They may also offer some services in UI and UX. Web designers are pros at designing across different devices, connection speed, bandwidth and other requirements.

What is a user experience (UX) designer?

UX design is a holistic and multi-disciplined field and the role of a UX designer will evolve with your project. 

At the beginning of the project they can assist you with:

  • Ethnographic research
  • Surveying of potential users
  • Customer feedback and testing on existing products
  • Mental modeling and other planning techniques
  • Competitive analysis

While the project is underway, they can:

  • Produce wireframes to demonstrate functionality and assist design decisions
  • Conduct heuristic analysis to determine the system's susceptibility to viruses or attacks
  • Conduct pluralistic walkthroughs with users to address usability issues
  • Develop prototypes in conjunction with UI designers to test functionality and features
  • Produce system maps to visually demonstrate the information architecture
  • Produce experience maps to visually demonstrate ergonomic considerations
  • Conduct user testing

After the project has launched, they will follow up with:

  • A/B testing to determine which of two variations is more successful
  • Additional wireframing as a result of test results and amendments to address issues

What is a user interface (UI) designer?

A UI designer will help you in both the planning and design phases of your project. Their role typically includes:

  • Functionality planning: Listing the various functions required by the system to meet the needs of the users and the goals of the project.
  • User and task analysis: Researching how users perform tasks currently and how the design can support the completion of those tasks.
  • Information architecture: The development of an information hierarchy and structure to ensure that the relevant information is delivered in the right sequence.
  • Prototyping: which consists of designing wireframes and simplified interaction prototypes, which allow functionality to be determined without focusing on aesthetics.
  • Usability testing: Testing the wireframes and prototypes on a potential user. UI designers engage these users in discussion and watch the way they interact with the interface to determine weaknesses and confusing elements.
  • Graphical user interface design: Designing the final aesthetics, with the goal of enhancing the usability which has been designed in previous steps.

What is a web design company?

A web design company or agency is where it all comes together. They provide a full range of design services for websites, e-commerce stores and web apps. 

They usually have a full team of web developers, web designers, UX designers, UI designers and app designers under one roof.

What services do web design companies offer?

Web designers offer the following services:

  • Website redesign
  • Custom website design 
  • Responsive web design
  • Ecommerce web design
  • Website audit 
  • Wireframing
  • Prototyping 
  • Information architecture
  • Usability testing
  • Content management system (CMS) design
  • UI/UX design
  • Mobile website and app design
  • Graphic design

How do I choose a web design company?

It can be a little overwhelming trying to choose a web design company when there are so many on the market.

First, you need to determine whether you want a custom web design, use a website builder or customise an existing template. 

A good web design company will be able to advise you on the best option based on your needs. 

Here are some top tips to find the right designer for your business.

  • Portfolio: Review their portfolio to see their clients and projects they’ve worked on. Does the portfolio match the website design you’d like?
  • Testimonials: What have previous clients said about working with them?
  • Recommendations from friends, colleagues and peers: Word of mouth recommendations are often the best kind.
  • Enthusiasm: Hire web designers who are interested to understand your brand. 
  • Creativity and flexibility: What is their working process like and how flexible can they be?
  • Outsourcing: Find out if they outsource any tasks or if they have in-house experts to oversee all elements of the project.
  • A transparent and structured process: How will they keep you updated about the project and inform you of problems and progress?
  • Reasonable price and packages: Get a few quotes to compare if their pricing is fair and standard across the board.
  • Ongoing support: Confirm whether they will do maintenance work on the website, or if you will need to do it yourself. Will they provide ongoing support if you experience any technical issues?

How much does web design cost?

The cost to hire a web designer varies considerably depending on factors including:

  • The size of your project
  • The complexity of your project ad which services you require
  • The designers’ skills and experience
  • The platform you are sourcing services 
  • The location of the service providers

To give you a ballpark figure, the average cost for a custom-designed website in Australia starts from around $5,000.

How much do website designers charge per hour?

Website designers in Australia typically charge from $75 per hour.

What is the risk of cheap website design?

It’s important to see web design as an investment in your long term growth. Your website is going to be one of the biggest assets for your business.

Depending on the type of business you run, your website will be one of your biggest revenue streams. 

It’s often a case of “you get what you pay for” and opting for a cheap package with an inexperienced designer may result in a website that has no conversion power - and could potentially cost you more in the long run.
