Small Business Custom Web Design in MD, VA, and DC Metro
Web Design needs to adhere to the visual psychology of the brain, supporting the flow of the user's attention, while avoiding distractions that can interrupt the focused mind, including any inconsistencies or irrelevancies.
In support of the user's attention, good web design should be consistent, especially since consistency is fundamental to usability - and without proper usability, users can easily become annoyed or frustrated with a website and simply turn away.
Additionally, distractions can be avoided by focusing on design quality, which can provide for a simple elegance that besides being attractive, should emphasize excellence and distinctive characteristics that are in harmony with the user's expectations.
As a result of the above philosophy, Vision Bloom emphasizes consistency and quality in web design to provide a professional look & feel that generates a user friendly web experience for users, allowing design elements to better serve their purpose - to support the main message or goal of the website.
Vision Bloom uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) High Quality Graphic Design Professional Photography and Rich Multimedia Design with Adobe Flash to promote and support the design philosophy mentioned above. Read about these design capabilities below.
Design with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a web technology used to design the look and feel of web pages. The proper application and mastery of Cascading Style Sheets has become essential to the fundamental design, layout, and rendering of website pages in today's modern browsers.
The use of CSS provides specific benefits, including the faster design of websites better organizations for maintenance of website pages faster download and rendering of websites and by indirectly supporting Search Engine Optimization.
In a nutshell, the use of CSS can save time, and money - during both the development and maintenance of a website.
Additionally, the use of CSS provides a helping hand to a core problem in web design, the requirement to render website pages consistently across the numerous popular browsers in use today - including Microsoft Internet Explorer Mozilla Firefox Google Chrome Apple Safari and the Opera Browser (to name the most popular).
By understanding core stylesheet principles and the appropriate application of cascading styles, a web designer gains the ability to design and format a website to one logical standard that is consistent across all browsers, increasing usability across different operating systems and across different users.
Remember, Cascading Style Sheets are fundamental in today's web design - hence a mastery and knowledge of CSS can go a far way in the development of a professional and high quality website, while saving design time and money. Vision Bloom appropriately makes use of CSS in the design of websites for our clients, helping to produce solutions that are faster to design, easier to manage, and more consistent across browsers - ultimately saving you time and money in the web design process.
High Quality Graphic Design
The goal of graphic design is to simplify information, provide visual form to ideas, and to communicate with expression. In the context of the web, graphic design is used to advertise and provide branding, organize information into easy to read layouts, to engage users using interactive graphic elements, and to promote visual calls to action.
Vision Bloom understands how high quality graphic design can enhance the usability, feel, and credibility of a website, so we focus on consistently using high quality design elements to support the development of website pages.
This includes applying high quality typography page layout photos images interface design and interactive elements.

Vision Bloom provides professional photography as a means to capture the right imagery for your website. This includes photography of products business locations events models equipment staff portraits and other related cases.
Rich Multimedia Design with Adobe Flash
Rich Multimedia Design is the capability to incorporate dynamic and engaging multimedia within a more graphically static environment, such as a website. Today, Adobe Flash is the de facto technology to bring rich multimedia to the web, and Vision Bloom makes appropriate use of this technology in the design of websites.
Vision Bloom's initial site was designed entirely in Flash and is an example of how Flash
can be used to incorporate animations, video, and interactivity into a website:
So why is rich multimedia design important? Because it stimulates the user to act and engage, allowing your message, service, or product to be better publicized to your audience. Specifically, rich multimedia design allows for the integration of Video Animations Interactive Elements, Audio & Music and can serve as an Integration Platform for new and innovative technologies.
Remembering the Purpose of a Well Designed Website
To garner credibility and trust
To attract the user's attention
And to communicate and engage the user to take action
Remember, poor design begets poor customers!
Since potential customers can judge you very quickly simply based on the look and feel of your online presence, it's important to not trust your website design to just anyone.
Good web design does not need to be a mystery. By using the appropriate design principles and capabilities mentioned above, good design can come together to work for you.
