3 Ways to Critically Look at the Portfolio Section of any Web Design Agency

Have you ever thought about why some websites have millions of visitors while the majority of other websites look for the visitors? We all like only a fraction of billions of websites that are available. So, why do some of them get so many hits? Some specific websites dealing in categories like news, sports, and entertainment are renowned worldwide, and the event doesn’t have to market their website.

So, what you need to know about the majority of other websites like certain businesses, and what is the reason that they are not so popular?  Web design is one of the aspects that can make a website look good and visitors on the website for the first time develop an interest in browsing through that website completely.

Spectacular design and layout are some of the hallmarks of great web design. One thing that can work as an advantage for businesses is a design that can make their visitors stay at their website for long. That’s why businesses try to go for the services of a web design agency that can offer the services so they can hit the bull’s eye.

 

Web Design Agencies in Dubai

Companies looking to get the best services from design agencies in Dubai may be in for a surprise. There are several aspects for which businesses need to select a design agency based on their past performance. The track record of a company in terms of dealing with its clients and offering excellent services is one aspect that needs to be taken care of very seriously.

So, how can businesses select a website design company based on their past performance? The following are the three ways in which you can decide whether a design agency is good enough or not.

 

  1. Love at First Sight

Yes, I know. This sounds cliché, but that’s one way that we decide that a certain website is what we need for web design. If during the first few seconds you fall in love with the website and all the portfolio they have managed over the years, chances are you are at the right destination. On average, we visit hundreds of websites daily, and if you are searching for something, the tally can go even further. That’s why if you love a website within a few seconds, it must be good.

The portfolio section is where any design agency tries to attract customers like you. It is the compilation of the best work they have done, and if that doesn’t entice you to go further on their website, it’s time to leave. There can be several sections of a portfolio, so you need to check out all the sections to have a clear idea.

To check the skills of the designers of a particular web design agency, you can also ask for samples so that you can go through virtually everything they have to offer. And if even after looking at the samples, you are not sure, then surely their designs are not that beautiful to look at. So, try to find another website of concern.

 

  1. Number of Completed Projects

One thing where you need to be very careful is the number of projects they have completed in the past. You may look at hundreds of pictures in graphics that they have designed for specific websites, but the number of projects is something different.

Think about a company’s portfolio section. They have listed around 500 samples of web pages. But most of them are related to a single website. So, when you have Stop looking at all the samples, you will realize that most of them were related to just two to three websites, and that’s it. This is simply not done as you need to have experienced designers and you can’t measure their performance by just looking at two or three projects.

On the contrary, there may be only android images of web design on a particular portfolio page. But for each website, they have given only five samples. So that’s about 20 projects that they have completed previously. And that’s a very good sign of a company having good experience in designing websites. This is one way to gauge the designing skills of people working at a professional web design agency.

 

  1. Type of Projects

Lastly, by going through the type of project they have done so far, you can get to know about several other aspects of their designing skill. First of all, you can go through their area of expertise. For example, web design agencies may have worked for websites dealing in apparel and other types of clothing like leather jackets. That’s why their portfolio section will be dominated by images of such websites.

On the other hand, if a design agency has worked on projects dealing with multiple aspects, then it is a good sign. You need to check the flow of design and how much expertise they have. Don’t think that if they have worked for multiple industries, then their designs must be good. Check out the portfolio section thoroughly to have a clear idea in this regard.

There is one mistake that many people commit when they are looking at the portfolio section is about checking the use of the latest technology. Skilled designers know how to work with the latest tools and software too so that they can work according to the requirements of any customer. Also, keep a close eye on the consistency of the designs. You may like one or two designs very much, but that can be their best work. If out of 100, you have liked just one or two designs, then probably you have to consider some other design agency.

 

Final Word

Finding a web design agency that can work in your favor is not an easy thing to do. And now you have seen that even going through the portfolio section of a website is not as easy as it sounds. You need to have good skills so that you can check the sample designs for the previous work of design agencies. Only in this way can you succeed in hiring the best company.
