Web designers are responsible for creating websites that are visually appealing and user-friendly. They also ensure that these sites function properly across various devices. How do you decide who to hire for your next project? There are lots of designers out there, but finding the right fit can be tricky. How do you know whether they'll deliver quality work?
Finding the right person to design your website or logo is no easy task. In fact, it can take months before you finally get someone you trust. And even then, you don’t always know if they’re going to deliver high-quality work.
There are several things you should look for when hiring a web designer. These include their portfolio, references, experience, skills, and communication style.
If you're looking for a web designer in Hobart Tasmania, you've come to the right place! Based in Hobart with a heap of experience servicing local clients, we have a huge love for the special small businesses of Hobart.
Let us tell you about our experience delivering projects for Hobart-based website owners, how we work, and how to get started.
Our portfolio showcases our unique style and creativity, and helps you as a potential client get a better idea of who you'll be working with. How should you assess our portfolio? Ask yourself these questions:
Buy From Tasmania is Tassie's own Etsy: a place where you can shop the amazing treasures of Tasmania from anywhere around the world, with one central checkout and catalogue. Run by Janelle Larkin and the connected Plug a Business Tasmania FaceBook group, this eCommerce platform continues to evolve and grow. Exposure and support for micro businesses is tough at the best of times, and COVID has just made that even more tough with handmade markets being cancelled and less well patronised. Online is where it's at.
Tasmania's answer to platforms rhyming with Boo and Insta Mint. Paule Noble runs Noble Ink from Kingston Tasmania, and his business has continued to expand. He came to us wanting to rival the big guns with tools and web presence but with local support and care factor right up to 1000. We delivered him that wish with an interactive platform where users can create, edit, and upload their business card designs, request quotes, and create their own profiles to print those projects again.
Our studio lead, Sarah, is based in South Hobart Tasmania and often meets locally with clients within a one-hour radius. A Lined Design uses project management tools to keep all projects on time and ensure that everything stays on track. We often use Zoom to meet with clients.
Our website design process is the same regardless of location - we are content first which means we develop the words, strategy, and user experience before any website graphic design is implemented on the browser. This will all be based on the creative brief that we develop together, which sets out your online goals, ideal client, target market, and the online journey you want to create for your business. We then develop wireframes, then desktop website design, the responsive design (for mobile phone and tablet) then launch. You can read more about our website design process here.
All our design packages are built to a client's need - we do not fill templates, we respond to a client's business goals and build digital solutions that aim to meet those goals. We've built websites for a wide range of businesses based in Hobart from bookkeepers to coaches, ecommerce and services.
Send us a contact form, tell us all about you, and let's get started! We'd love to help your digital presence stand out from the crowd and give you a beautiful custom web solution that reduces your admin and brings in more leads.
