My friend is looking to get a new website for his school, however, he is not sure what needs to be improved, I am looking for people who know about websites to get objective advice on what needs to be improved, here is the website https://ardscoildungarvan.com/
Give me dumb website ideas, if I like i'll make it. I'm bored.
I have a friend who does spare parts trading for heavy machinery and he doesn't have a website. Thought I'd help him get one but I'm at a loss of what it should even look like.
He doesn't want to have an online store that requires maintenance. His work is very specific and niche and it's not something that can become an ecommerce website. He just needs a website for visibility, validation and for lead generation.
What are some sample websites that I can use to be inspired by? I might hire a pro web designer but first I'd like to get an idea of what I'm looking for and I'm at a loss.
All competitors have horrible basic websites (typical corporate website format with a lot of text).
As the title says. I'm a designer and art director with a couple years' experience in graphic design (many areas) but I want to start making my own websites after a couple horrid experiences.
For context on my abilities: I can work my way around Figma to create sitemaps, user flows and a fairly finished end product idea. I'm also pretty good at structuring content, but putting the whole thing together? Man, oh man.
I usually work in branding and art direction, so creating all aspects of a brand is my bread and butter and want to be able to set up a basic website for clients who don't need a ton of stuff to begin with.
If you've got some experience in design, where would you start? Wordpress is a complete mystery and everything seems to have endless plugins to create everything you can think of, which leaves me paralysed and half-learning a lot of stuff that I never put to practice.
Thanks and be kind ✨
I'm looking to animate some SVGs. The only SVG sites I'm finding are primarily icons. Are there any "high end" SVG repositories?
edit: I'm finding t-shirt SVGs, but I'm looking for things more .. business themed, cell phones with depth, graphs. Which I guess Icons8 has..
editedit: copyicon.com is what I was looking for. I'll leave the post up if anyone has some other recommendations.
There are so many webdesign inspiration platforms (Dribbble, awwwards, behance...) and building themed collections in each of them was just not efficient for me. I need big collections to make my work and client communication easier.
How do you guys handle this problem ?
- stick to mostly one platform (and if yes which one) ?
- centralise the inspiration elsewhere ( tools like notion) ?
- use other people collections as a base (which ones) ?
Thank you so much(to the mods, I am aware the FAQ contains a list of inspirations websites but my question is different, cheers)
So I’m trying to get some experience creating ecom sites so that I would have work to show potential clients. How should I go about that? Would it be best to look at poorly designed ecom stores and redesign them?
Can anyone help me figure out if this test is just a plugin, or some sort of subscription service? I'd like to use the same test on a different site I'm building, but I'm getting stuck at gatsby when I look at the source code, but I can't find this MB test on their website. Thanks so much!
Making a website for some freelance web development I'm going to do for small businesses. I'd likea fancy logo reveal hero element video.
Stuff like this: https://elements.envato.com/video-templates/logo-stings
Especially local and small businesses.
E.g.: I called a potential client and they told me: "I already have a Google business profile, I don't need a website".
What is the added benefit here? Since when you search for some service on Google, most of the times there are Google business profiles displayed on the top and below that are websites.
Hello fellow designers!
I've recently transitioned from web design in Figma to designing an Android application. During my explorations, I came across both the Material 3 Design kit and the Android UI kit. So far, everything's been pretty clear.
However, there's something I can't wrap my head around: I've been under the impression that the consensus is to design using a 360px wide frame. Yet, both the Material and Android UI kits provide a screen frame that's 412px wide—complete with a neat outer stroke, top/bottom bars, grid, etc.
I have a few questions I'd love to get insights on:
412px Screen in Kits: If the best practice is to design in 360px, why do both kits offer a 412px frame with a perfectly set up grid, bars, and other elements? Is this purely for presentation purposes? If so, why not utilize a 360px frame for this? Additionally, the 360px frame doesn't seem as fleshed out—it lacks the detailed top/bottom bars (and variants of the wifi icon, for example!), outer stroke, and other elements present in the 412px frame. Why is this the case?
Setting up Bars in 360px Frame: For those of you who use the 360px frame from these kits, how do you ensure the top/bottom bars (and items in those bars) are positioned correctly and the correct size?
360px Frame Size: My understanding is that 360px is on the smaller side for mobile designs. StatCounter claims this width is still predominant. However, in Central Europe (where I'm based, and our target audience resides), I rarely come across phones smaller than 375px. On the other hand I also understand that scaling designs down is trickier than scaling up (i.e., letting a 360px design 'breathe' more due to larger margins in a 412px frame, right?). So, is 360px still even the recommended route?
Would appreciate any advice or insights you all could share. Thank you in advance!
A little background about me, I am working as an automation tester at an IT company in India. I used to design websites in Wordpress in the past and I found these illustration helpful when I was designing websites. So I finetuned a stable diffusion model that can generate illustrations and banners. This is a actually my first full stack website and I am doing web design using coding for the first time. Learned react and tailwind along the way. So the website doesn't look that pretty. Please have mercy. :)
It will take about a minute to generate the images.
It will require you to use google account to signup and you will get 3 credits ( I wanted to offer more for people to test but I am too poor). You can't buy any credits for now. If you want more credits, you can DM me.
Note that the email will be saved in the database to make sure you won't generate more than 3 times. Not gonna use the email to send promotions or anything. Just chose the Google login because it's easy to implement and safe so that people can't abuse it.
If there is enough demand I can build a proper dashboard with more design options and higher quality images if this website can make at least $100/ month
Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this
I'm just curious to know how and why website and custom emails are superior to Facebook pages, especially for small business, think Handyman, Hairdressers, GP, dentist, restaurant, etc...
In a subreddit, I've seen a post where an applicant was given a test that closely resemble typical scrum tasks developers encounter in their workplaces. Moreover, I've come across several instances where candidates felt exploited. It seems to be a known strategy for some employers to cut costs by not compensating their employees, keep all the cash for themselves, and offloading tasks to job applicants, a form of disguised outsourcing.
Here are some signs that you might be inadvertently doing outsourced work:
The test outlines typical CRUD operations, such as User or Customer. It specifies the pages you need to create. For certain models, like User, you might be instructed to assign roles like editor, admin, etc. Not to mention, they provide explicit details about the fields (name, status, imageUrl, etc.) required for nearly every table.
I've personally experienced all the points mentioned above with a company called Bits Of Love. I left a 1-star review on their Google Maps profile, and within about half an hour, one of their managers reached out to me, explaining they were busy with other applicants. A day or so later, they managed to remove my review from their Google Maps profile. To clarify, my 1-star review wasn't specifically due to suspicions about them, but rather their lack of communication with me after I completed their test and reached out to them. While I'm not entirely certain that companies using this strategy are doing so for their own benefit, I want to make my fellow developers aware and encourage them to be cautious when considering such companies. Especially junior developers who want to start working. Be mindful and don't be afraid to ask questions why you are doing this.
Is it an investment or a hobby or what’s your plan?
Hey everyone, last weekend I posted a question here, asking if anyone was interested in attracting bigger clients with larger budgets.
I mentioned that I was interested in creating content about this topic, specifically a sales process designed for creatives and web professionals. Many of you PMed me, expressing interest in such content, so I decided to launch a newsletter. It's called WebpreneurXL, and I'm sharing the very first issue here on Reddit for everyone to see.
Starting now, I'll be releasing new issues every Friday via email. If you enjoy this content and want to receive future issues, please PM me, and I'll send you the subscription link.
I'm not posting it directly here to avoid violating any subreddit rules.
I want to express my gratitude for all the comments and messages I received on my previous post. Feel free to ask me anything if you think I can help you.
I’m on a new call, with a brand new lead, he’d like to know more about how I work, and if I could build this idea they have in mind, and if I already did some work like that before, and if I could do the design and everything else or they need to also hire a programmer, and if I could also do their logo, and if I could help them with the content too, and above everything else, how much is going to cost. because, naturally, they are on a tight budget.
Oh, the budget.
That well kept secret that clients never reveal because they’re afraid that if they say 3k you’re going to say, oh, what a coincidence, that’s EXACTLY the number I had in mind.
Then they’ll have a million questions. And you got some answers too. And with each answer you feel you’re doing ok, and the project is almost yours. Almost.
Then, all of a sudden they say something in the likes of “Well, I think I have everything I needed to know here, I’ll be discussing this with my partners.”
And then it comes.
“Could you please write a proposal for us?”
You think, I’m just one step away from getting this project. Just need to write a proposal and they will buy.
So you say OF COURSE! I’ll have it by tomorrow morning.
Even if that means staying awake all night. Because, honestly, what's one sleepless night when you're on the verge of landing a new deal that will not only cover your bills but also let you spoil your partner?
So, you go to bed after 4 am because this needs to be done ASAP.
You probably have some kind of calculation to get to the pricing part. Maybe something like “this will take me at least 25 hours, I charge just 100 bucks an hour, because obviously nobody would pay me more than that, so that’s what? 2.5K? Sounds good to me. Yeah, let’s go with that”
So you send it.
And you wait.
And you know what’s next.
Oh, maybe I can send them an email asking them if they got my email, because we all know emails sometimes don’t work.
Perhaps they respond with something along the lines of 'Yeah, I haven’t had a chance to dive into it just yet, but I promise to get to it soon and give you the scoop. Cheers, Jonathan.’
Jonathan is busy as fuck. You understand, right?
As the weeks roll on without a peep from them, you slowly start to accept that this ship has sailed.
Better luck next time.
But hey, that’s not a problem, because Kurt here just sent you an email. He came across your portfolio and he’d like to discuss his project.
We’re back on tracks baby!
You start thinking “maybe I could afford a second sleepless night…”
For over 25 years, I was responsible for converting leads into paying clients at my small digital agency. Despite being primarily a designer and a full-stack developer, I found myself thrust into the world of sales because someone had to do it. For some reason, which I'm still trying to comprehend, my partners looked to me for this role.
The first lesson I learned while interacting with the initial 10 leads was that I sucked.
At that time, I was unaware I sucked. I wondered if it was just bad luck. However, I vividly recall the experience of speaking to 10 leads and not converting a single one into a client.
Was our pricing too high?
When you're unable to close deals, the first thing that crosses your mind is your price. You have this internal urgency to lower it, to be cheaper than your competition, that’ll do it!
But what I soon realized was that closing a $100 deal was just as challenging as closing a $1000 one.
So if the struggle is the same, why would I choose to charge $100 instead of $1000?
So, what was the issue? Perhaps our portfolio wasn't as impressive as we thought…
By that time, I had become accustomed to hearing a phrase they repeated over and over.
“I'll let you know.”
To which I used to respond over and over with a simple “ok...” while thinking to myself, “I guess we'll have to wait now.”
It took me some time to finally understand that I was being interviewed, much like a boss does when trying to hire a new employee. They were the ones asking all the questions, and I thought I was doing well because my answers were 'good.'
Eventually, they ran out of questions, so basically, the meeting was over. That's when they asked for a proposal, so they had everything they needed to make an informed decision.
Problem was, I was completely left out of that decision. And I thought that was okay. After all, it's their project, and I couldn't tell them what to do.
They were leading the call.
That was the moment everything changed for me.
So, how exactly do you 'lead' a conversation? Or, even better, an entire sales process?
The first thing you need is a clear end goal. You cannot lead someone towards nothing; you guide them through your process with the aim of achieving the specific goal each call must accomplish.
And no, the goal of the first call is not necessarily to close the client, unless you're selling something very inexpensive, almost an impulse buy. This is usually not the case when selling digital solutions.
Here’s the thing, let’s say you want to buy a $100 product. In most cases you’ll probably just click the “Buy Now” button in some online store and that’s it.
What about a $2500 product? Well, now you probably would like to talk to someone first, because naturally you have some questions.
What if the product is $25K? Now you have A LOT of questions and need to involve more people because this decision is not to be taken lightly.
In order to close such a deal you will need a process, a series of steps that bring assurance and build trust, while making sure the client is without any single doubt ready to buy this solution from you, and nobody else but you.
The way you lead your client through this process is by detailing what’s going to happen in each call, having a specific plan and goal for every call, asking them questions grouped by specific areas, creating a solution to the client’s problem once you have a deep understanding of each of them, especially the ones the client didn’t mention, presenting your solution to them and finally presenting a proposal that includes multiple prices so they can be inclined to buy the one you really want to sell.
And yes, I said “presenting a proposal”, not “sending one”.
If you’re like I used to be you probably have 1 call to sell your services. Maybe 2.
The first thing you need to know is that clients would love to solve all of this in just one call, so they can finally say to you "great, let me talk to my partner and get back to you". Clients want to lead, and your job is to not let them do that.
Your business, you’re the one leading.
So if you want a piece of those bigger budgets you will have to create a multiple calls system that give you a chance to even be in the map for them.
So, how many calls? It depends on project size and complexity, but 3 calls is the bare minimum you should have, even for smaller projects.
Once I went through 16 calls to finally sell our rather expensive solution to a client.
What do you do in these calls? Let me outline for you what a multiple calls system intended to immediately grow your profit would look like.
From now on, I'll be focusing solely on this specific call, because, believe it or not, it's the call where most people tend to fail.
The first question you should have regarding this project is “is this a good fit for me?”. What I mean is, is this project going to help you grow in the direction you’d like to grow, maybe you want to get more clients in a specific niche, or maybe you want to specialize in WordPress and this project won’t let you do that.
I get it, you want the money. We all have to pay our bills.
But sooner or later you’ll realize that if your only motivation to accept the next project is money then you’ll end up hating what you do. Been there.
So this call is about listening to your “client” (or just lead at this stage) and understanding the challenge involved in this project.
Is not about selling, you won’t talk about money here, and you won’t “sell” anything. At least not yet.
What you’re certainly going to do is ask questions. Lots of them.
This will allow you to know what you’re getting into and if this is something you want to follow or not.
This call will end with you not solving any problem, not discussing your prices, not informing the client how long this project is going to take, but rather telling them that in order to create the best results for them you need to deeply understand the challenge ahead and that you’d like to schedule a new call where you want to focus in other specific areas of the project.
Copy and paste the following examples in your next call script. Because you DO have a call script, right?
"Hey John, thanks for jumping on a call with me, how are things in (wherever)?"
Now this small first question is VERY important. It sounds like nothing, but those first seconds when you discuss everyday life, talking about anything except work is the first indication the client gets that you're not a robot who's there to sell sell sell.
They want a relaxed, nice environment where they can open up and tell you about their project, and your work is to build that for them, to make them feel safe. This builds rapport from the get going.
So ALWAYS have a small question, discuss something that's going on, it could be as stupid as the weather:
"I don't know about you John but my AC is about to explode, I really hate hot weather, it's like 200 degrees out there. Are you more of a summer person or winter?"
Yes, THAT stupid. Once this small 30 seconds phase is done then you'll describe what this call will be about. You say something like:
"Let me tell you how this calls usually go, first I'd like to ask you some questions about your project, then I'll tell you how we work and what we can bring to the table, and answer any question you might have, sounds good?"
This is the first YES you're going to get from your client. "YES" are important like lives in a video game. The more you have, the longer you'll live.
Then you'll say something like:
"I've seen in your (website, Linkedin, whatever) that you do X, but since sometimes those places can have outdated info I'd like to hear it from you in your own words. So, what exactly do you do John?"
John have been waiting for this call to vomit all the info he has in his head, all his ideas, what he and his company does and everything he can think of regarding his project.
You’ll let him do that. Without interrupting him.
The moment he gives you a chance to speak you’ll be on the next phase of the call.
From now on, the questionnaire had begun. And you'll need a good one too, with questions that will allow you to perfectly understand pain points, start measuring in your head the job ahead, and most specifically what problems are now hidden that when you uncover them the client says "oh, I never thought of that, you're right".
"Great John, so let's say I build this website and it does all those things you told me, where is the traffic coming from? Is this traffic organic, paid, inbound, outbound, how warm are they when they get to your website? Have they already read a blog post, watched a video, listened to your podcast? We need to understand this to design the right customer journey."
So if they say "well, we don't actually have a source of warm traffic..." then you just uncovered a problem that they didn't tell you about. This will increase their budget because now they need to solve this too. You need to work on a questionnaire, prior to be ready to talk to new leads.
And ideally this questionnaire should have questions grouped by specific areas like audience questions, value proposition questions, but also questions related to their decision making like:
"Let's say that I have the perfect solution for you, what will be your next step? Do you need to involve more people in this? Is this something that you're looking for to solve immediately, do you have a timeframe to act on this?"
Questions like those help you gauge how quickly this could become a paying project, because your lead might be in any part of their buying cycle. They may be just starting to talk to companies to see what's out there or they may need this now because they've reached a pain they can't endure any longer.
This will allow you to better organize your pipeline and prioritize them according to buying intention.
When you finally reach a point where you have an overview of the project it’s time to inform John what’s next.
You could talk a bit of how you work, what prior experience did you have with projects like this one, etc. But most importantly you will schedule the next call.
It could go something like this:
“Perfect John, what I’d like to do now is to schedule a new call where we can focus on X aspect of your project. Is Wednesday ok for you?”
Two things can happen at this point. Either John is ready to schedule a new call or he can say something like:
“Look, I appreciate all these questions, I can tell you're very interested in learning about our business as much as possible, but wouldn't it be possible to just send us a proposal so we can discuss with our partners?”
To which you’ll answer:
“Sorry John, but I don't work like that.”
And then you're going to explain why:
"The results I can get for my clients are my number one priority, and I cannot get any results if I don't truly understand the in and outs of your business like the palm of my hand. So at this point I need to ask you, are you willing to have more calls like this one so I can really solve all the challenges your project is facing and we can get the results you're searching for?"
You need this YES. If they say no, or if they give you some excuse, then you'll say:
"In that case I might not be the best fit for your project John, I'm sure there's plenty of people out there that can give you a proposal without even getting to know your project and its priorities. If you ever change your mind about this, let me know".
This is you leading. If they want to work with you then it's your way, not theirs, otherwise they're out.
Call goal: Make them commit to your sales process and schedule the next call.
So if you’re used to trying to sell in one call this might be a little bit of a shock.
Take it slowly, don’t add 10 more calls to your current sales process, but maybe 1 more.
Identify how you can split your current call into a 2 or 3 call system. Are you asking too many questions in 1 call? Add another one and separate the questions into groups, one for each call.
You don’t need so many questions? (yes you do) but let’s say that for some very strange reason you don’t want to ask more questions, ok then, move the solution (what you will do for them) to another call. So now you have 1 call to ask questions, 1 call to present your solution based on their answers and 1 call to talk about money and the proposal.
If you change your one-call mindset to a multiple calls system you will see the budget of the client growing because you will be able to unveil problems that the client is not fully aware of right now, but once uncovered they’ll have to act on them or they’ll have a half-cooked solution.
And when they are in call number 3 or 4 with you, assuming that these call take place weekly so they’ve been talking to you for a month, starting from scratch with another agency is a bitch.
You’ve built trust. You know every single thing there is to know about this project, you’ve even helped them to see things they weren’t able to see on their own.
They’ll want to do this with you.
This is how you lead, and they follow.

Hi all, I'm a FE developer with several years of experience. My downfall is that I've worked with designers in my team for most of my career so I've only really had to worry about the building part rather than designing for the most part.
That's not to say I can't design an okay looking site but I'd very much like to take it to the next level and get the know-how on how to design very crisp, modern websites - the building aspect I'm not really concerned with.
So if anyone has anything they'd recommend for my situation, I'd be over the moon
How non coders decide price
I think after making 6-7 websites, i can call myself a website designer.
Since I'm a non coder website designer, i always get confise in deciding the price for my work.
I use wordpress and elementor pro to design and develop the website. I'm currently charging $100 + $20 for each page.
So few days ago i met a guy you was also making the website using eleemntor but when i scroll through his portfolio i understood that I'm making way more good looking website than him. The twist is he's charging almost the double of my price and his clients have no issues with the price.
I don't know where I'm lacking since i provide 90 days free maintenance service too.
What should i do?
I'm a video/content producer and have recently been asked to create some videos that will autoplay on a website banner. Similar to how the video plays on this page: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/business/batteries/congo-cobalt-mining-for-lithium-ion-battery/
What's the best file format for this? I've been using MP4 but want to ensure the quality to file size ratio is at it's best. Is there a better format I should be using?
Is there anything I can do to make the web designer's life easier?
I'm thinking of using Square space for this. She wants me to take photos, video coverage and hemp build a page that covers difference types of events such as weddings, quinceaneras, birthday parties etc. This would also include a monthly maintainance so if she wanted me to add something to the site, I would be available. In addition to helping her rank within SEO.
Not sure where to start 🤔 any starting points for this?
As the new unofficial lead designer on a growing team with a mix of internal and external designers, I'm responsible for managing design revisions over time for our numerous ongoing products. Features are added, removed, and edited, and different designers have their own workflows. Ultimately, approved work needs to be incorporated into a "master" design that can be carried forward.
One approach I've seen is to create a Figma Team for each product, and then Projects (folders) within the product for different states of design, such as "In Progress," "Ready for Dev," and "In Production." However, I'm concerned that breaking things down to this level of granularity could put too much onus on the designer, especially for newer designers who are already struggling with file organization.
We recently upgraded to an Organization license, so I'm testing this approach with some test Teams and Projects in Figma. However, I'm still looking for the best way to help our team organize everything and hand off work effectively.
TL;DR: Our team is struggling to organize design files and hand off work. How can we effectively modify our product's UI and carry those changes over into future iterations?
