Is there a difference between a Web Designer and a Web Developer?
Yes, and at Bad Hat Harry we do both.
Every cowboy with a computer can make a website these days. And you see ads online every day telling you that you can build your own beautiful website for little or no expense and with no experience.
There is however, a very big difference between a professionally built website and an off-the-shelf website. Do you know how to write good copy that Google will rank well? Does your site look good on mobile devices? Do you customers bounce straight out of your site because they can’t find what they are looking for?
There is also a big difference between a Web Programmer / Web Developer and a Web Designer. Function is paramount for all of us, but what good is a functional website if it leaves absolutely no impression of your brand? Or worse, it makes a bad impression. A Web Designer is a graphic designer who designs artwork which is seen online – and they know how to combine the functional necessities your site needs, with the visual communication elements to make the right impression and how to deliver your message. At Bad Hat Harry, we do both. We build, develop and program but your brand shines through.
Not only do we make your sites look good, (and therefore your business looks good) through great graphic design and business branding, we have decades of experience at building effective navigation structures, good SEO and writing content where your website visitors will quickly find the answers they are looking for.
