First of all, WorldLight made me feel as if I were their only client. They were attentive, patient, professional and strategic to the end of the project. Because of this, we have asked them to further support us. The quality of work they delivered was exceptional - if there was an error, they attended to it immediately and fixed it without delay. This is actually one of the best agencies I've worked with in my career. I appreciated their recommendations and treating me as if we were part of the team -- this was in no way the typical client/agency agency. This was so much more.

Web Design FAQs

What does a Web Designer do?

A web designer’s job is to envision and plan a strong web presence that will help companies stand out from their competition, attract the right website visitors, and turn those visitors into customers, clients, and patients. They plan out how a website should look and function to obtain the best results.

What is the difference between Web Design and Web Development?

Web Design is how a website looks and functions, with both the company’s and the user’s goals in mind. Colors, fonts, and images are part of web design, but so is formatting, navigation, next steps, and calls to action. Everything about web design affects the user experience and must be considered through that UX lens.

Web Development encompasses things like coding, scripting, and the technical aspects of a website such as performance, speed, capacity, and security.

Think of it this way: the web designer is the architect who plans how a house will look taking into consideration how it will be used, while the web developer is the contractor who actually builds the house.

How much does it cost to build a website?

The cost to build a website depends on variables such as the purpose of the website, the amount of content, features of the site, and hosting. You could invest as little as $3,000 or up to $50,000 or more, depending on just what you need your website to do. Click here to see some price comparisons.

How do I choose a Web Design Company?

  • Industries They’re Experienced With … have they worked with companies similar to yours or within industries similar to yours? And do they have experience with a variety of industries?
  • Passion and Creativity are important because you don’t want your website to look like a clone of someone else’s.
  • Professional Process … if they don’t have one, it might be a warning sign.
