Web Design

“Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context – a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.” –Eliel Saarinen, in Time magazine, July 2, 1956

iCommunicate’s strategies are simple:

We build for a minimum of two environments – one populated by humans, and the more hidden other which is examined and indexed by computers employed by search engines. For a site to be user friendly with an ability to be found, both have to be honoured!

“Nothing we ever imagined is beyond our power, only beyond our present self knowledge.” –Theodore Rozak

The efficient gaining of self knowledge from the web comes down to three simple rules that we’ve found to be very sound,¬¨‚Ćand the relationship between them :

  • “Content is King” [relative content – textual and sometimes pictorial]
  • “Navigation” [no point in having great content if it can’t be easily found!]
  • ‘The look” [the graphics, logo, colour, branding etc.]

It’s been our experience that many sites are designed with the above points in the reverse order, or worse yet, unrelated!
