I didn't realize this but after reading an article on architecture the other day I realized that it applied quite directly to me and my business at WebSpark. We do more than simply design great websites. We create a plan of attack,walk through the entire process from start to finish, and put contingencies in place to ensure success. Our goal is much deeper than designing a website for distribution.
Much like architects do we draw up plans for how a site should function, the methods it should use for interaction with its visitors, and how to make the overarching experience one of enjoyment for the end-user. We lay all this out before beginning work, then we methodically complete each piece to ensure a successful project at the end.
Web designers are a dime a dozen. I can't tell you the number of times I've hear the line, "oh, you do web design....so does my (insert-favorite-relation-here)!". It seems everyone now-days is a web designer or has one in the family. It wasn't until recently that I discovered that what I do is much, much different.
At WebSpark we are Web Architects. We build the structure and architecture of the web. And we make it look good while we're doing it.
