As a designer, I recognize that there is a time and place to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve been seeing WordPress pop up everywhere from the 87 designer blogs I visit frequently, to web pages promoting the latest and greatest product for Such-and-Such Co.
This is my current project. As today is day 2 of Em2a Studios’s web publicity, there’s not terribly much to be seen, and I’m still kicking around a few ideas. I’m of the opinion that since this is a Designer’s page, my site should display my talents and the finest of my works. I should be proud of my page (and it shouldn’t look like something I pulled out of a list of templates).
That being said, my question that I post to you is “What do you look for in a website?” As a designer, I think it’s important to know these things. There’s a lot of hub-bub over SEO, content, flash or no flash, scripts, and what have you. Sure, these things are important, but it does nothing to keep viewers on the site. Let me know your opinions!
