A well designed website should be visually pleasing & clean. Simple to get around without clicking too many links. Should have no gimmicky flash animations or other pointless distractions. Thankfully the trend today is going away from flash heavy designs. Instead, simple to navigate sites that are Mobile device friendly are all the rage.

Logo Design

A good logo is the first step to a brand identity. Today you see 3 key concepts in logo design.

1. This one only works for well established or big brand names. A logo that when you see it you know the company name or product with out the name being in the logo.
Examples: Apple, Nike or Target.

2. Combination of logo and stylized text. This is the second most common type of logo design today. You have stylized text with some graphic element.
Examples: Best Buy, McDonald's, Walmart.

3. The most common one you see now is stylized text with the use of different size fonts and color to make an unique clean logo.
Examples: Sony, Aveda, Drobo
