Everybody knows how quickly the internet changes.
The problem is that many website owners don’t realize that this also applies to the standards used in web design, not only big software development projects.
Have a look at these two sites designed for different screen resolutions.
Which one makes more of an impact on you?
- Website built for 600*800 *by another company* (this was the design standard six years ago):
- One of our websites, designed for 1024*768 +:
Today’s Web Design Industry Standard
The screen resolution standard used by the web design industry, is set according to the statistics, of the most common screen resolutions in use, by the users of the web.
As of January 2010, internet users are broken down by the following %:
- People viewing the internet at the 800*600 screen resolution = 1% of users
- People viewing the internet at the 1024*768 screen resolution= 20% of users
- People viewing the internet at at a higher resolution than 1024*768 = 76%
Here’s some examples of our other recent designs, which use the full screen resolution.
Is Your Website a Victim?
If your website is huddled in the middle of the screen, or off to the left, you are not making the impact on your viewers that you need to have.
I highly recommend that as a part of your looking at your website and your brand,
you take time now to upgrade your website to a new design which
- is targeted at today’s screen standards.
- is clean, unique, and memorable.
