Approaching your web design strategy, as you are bombarded with countless options and needing to ensure that your customers can use your site easily and that it embodies your company image – sounds overwhelming, doesn’t it?
We have compiled a short list that can assist you in narrowing your focus and seeing what options you have – laid out easily, with advantages and disadvantages, this list can help you quiet your mind and approach your design strategy with more information and clarity.
Static Web Design
This type of design is delivered to the user exactly as it is stored, displaying the same information for any viewer. They are often HTML documents stored as files and made available by the web server. This type of design is ideal for websites that do not need to be updated frequently (or even at all) – since maintaining many static pages can be time-consuming and perhaps even impractical, any static site will often remain simple and contain few pages.
Advantages: Quick and inexpensive to develop, and cheap to host.
Disadvantages: Requires web development expertise to update the website, the simplicity makes it not as useful for the viewers, and content can stagnate.
Dynamic Web Design
Websites that are constructed and controlled by an application server. In the scripting and coding, every new web page is set up and predetermined. Interestingly, the content of this type of website is always updating by itself based on the content of the database that drives it. Many larger websites focus on this design, coupled with CMS.
Advantages: Website restructuring is easier (ensuring longevity), website contributors only need basic skills (no need to be an expert to make modifications).
Disadvantages: may be more expensive for smaller companies
CMS (Content Management System)
Website These pages allow for publishing, editing, and modifying content (as well as organizing, deleting, and general maintenance). CMS sites are ideal for blogs, news sites, and retail companies! This form of design has two basic elements: CMA (content management application), which is the user interface that allows even beginners to modify content without intervention from an expert; the second, CDA (content delivery application) compiles that information that the user inputed and updates the site – basically, making the process smooth and intuitive.
Advantages: Security, SEO-friendly, dynamic content and easily integrate-able with social media, as well as giving users the control.
Disadvantages: Hosting can be expensive, some systems need constant server maintenance and must be upgraded consistently with any software changes.
Ecommerce Web Design
Exactly what it sounds like – the best option for businesses who run their stores online. Typical characteristics include online payment accessibility for products and services, with integration for Paypal or other options. These types of sites are usually dynamic and driven through databases.
Advantages: Low operational costs, convenient for customers (which will then contribute to an expanded customer base), minimal barriers to entry for any new companies.
Disadvantages: Inability to experience products before purchase, need for internet connection (though this may not be an issue for the majority of users), constant updating and site maintenance to ensure that the UX (user experience) remains top-notch.

For the past few years, responsive design has been the talk of the industry. Many people have predicted that it would be the industry standard. Fast forward to today and you’ll see that they were right. Most design and development firms offer responsive design services and the most reputable websites use this format to cater to their mobile audience. Responsive web design, however, has come a long way and is better than ever. Here are some new developments that will surprise you.
One of the big issues with responsive was that dealing with images was tedious. An image that was created for desktop users would be too big for mobile users and take a long time to load. It was also annoying to try to scale the size to the screen of the devices. Fortunately, there are many tools, plugins, and technology that can help you optimize your image sizes, automatically adjust to the mobile user, and customize how your images appear.
Conditional loading is a feature that makes people often think “why didn’t they come up with that earlier?” Rather than loading all the elements of a website at once, it only loads when needed. For example, do you really need to load social media buttons before the user has reached the bottom of the screen to share your content? Conditional loading only loads elements when relevant which makes the whole mobile browsing experience faster and seamless.
Typography is very important today, especially in the responsive design era. Typography in design not only makes you stand out from other websites, but also makes your website more consumable by users. The right typography really does make the text pop and draw people into reading the content. With many websites now using custom or unique typography, it’s becoming important to make sure that the text comes out correctly on all devices. Proper optimization is necessary to ensure that your typography makes its impact.
Use of Grids for Layouts
Previously, designers used position and float to create layouts. Now using the responsive grid system is becoming more commonplace and a better choice for developing responsive sites. This system makes it easy to place as many columns on your layout, ensure that your layout scales to the screen size, and run seamlessly with your HTML and CSS code.
Use of Client-Side Device Detection
Through an API There are now services that use an API to get information from users. It will see if the device of the user has a touch screen, check for calling capabilities, calculate bandwidth speeds, detect the browser being used, and so much more. With this information, you can make certain that most of your users are being served the best possible browsing experience on their mobile device.
This is just scratching the surface. There is a lot more being discovered, developed, and optimized for the responsive format. With each passing month, website owners are able to create a better mobile browsing experience for their users.
