We thought it might be nice to showcase some projects (every now and again) that we completed this past year. Our next blog will be about custom website design, and what we believe is good design verses bad design. After all we have been designing custom websites for over 10 years so “we think we might know a little bit about the subject!
We were fortunate to have picked up some great clients last year and the hard work we put in proved to be a success. We pride ourselves in our design work, we honor budgets and we believe, it’s really about our clients that make Wieting Design the kind of company it is. We have built our business on the conviction that integrity and the quality of work we deliver is our first priority.
About Darien Rowayton Bank
We never designed a website for a bank before, so this was a first for us. We partnered with Peter Blau, owner of Customer Growth to design and build their student lending business site and then they hired us to design and build their retail bank site. DRB wanted a user friendly website, one that would talk to the college students applying for loans, to function across all platforms, mobile responsive, and most important they needed to track visitors and monitor loan applications through the site. They also wanted to rank along side some of the biggest banks in the US to help gain more traffic and to acquire more business, which with certain key words we accomplished that. Here is a snap shot of the work we did for DR Bank.

We love good simple design. Effective web design is judged by the users of the website not the owners. There are many factors that affect the usability of a website, and it is not just about how good it looks, but how it functions.
Websites that are not well designed tend to perform poorly and have sub-optimal Google Analytics metrics (e.g. high bounce rates, low pages per visit and low conversions). Our next blog will talk about what makes a good website design, we will explore the top 10 web design principles that will make your site aesthetically pleasing, easy to use, and what really engages the user.
