Web Design Critique: Earthwise Hauling

Organization, proper presentation; a company has to look trustworthy, even when they deal with junk. Especially so, in fact. If Earthwise Hauling’s site; earthwisehauling.com, is any indication, they got the memo.

The company’s goal is to provide eco-friendly junk removal, and their color scheme communicates that intention quite well, with a white and green pairing that gives the site a friendly feel. This friendly aesthetic is something the site embraces, using selected icons and images, the latter of which also gives it a much needed human element.

As for the content, it’s well organized, and kept concise, with good use of bullets, tables, and short paragraphs. It sticks to the site’s goal of looking friendly by using brighter shades of green for highlighting, and Sans Serif font to give it that soft aesthetic, which works well.

While there’s a lot of visual media, they don’t feel overwhelming, nor do they overpower the text, though there is a bit of scrolling needed for pages. They also add a bit of interactivity within the site, like with the Services and Pricing page, which has the options listed in a table, with options affecting the visual of the hauling truck located to its right.

Navigation is straightforward, with the standard main menu up top with all the links to the pages, as well as the associated social media accounts for the company. It sticks to the top of the browser while scrolling down, letting users access it all the time. There’s a button that automatically scrolls back up to the top of every page, and there’s also an abundance of links on the content itself, so navigation feels organic and convenient.

On the technical side, the site’s page code is beautifully done; organized and makes the most use of CSS and Javascript, with lots of callouts for formatting. As a result, most of what’s visible when viewing the site’s source are links, neatly organized with judicious use of line breaks.

Overall, earthwisehauling.com is a beautifully done piece, with great organization and use of color and visual images to help sell its status as a junk hauling business.

If you are a consumer or a tech talent that has come across kingkong.com.au review, it is very likely that you will be interested to visit the website. You will be curious on what the digital agency offers to clients to grow their business.

The website has minimalistic design which conveys a professional look. They chose to focus on the colour gray that perfectly contrasts with the white background. If you will access the website through a mobile phone, you will notice that there is hardly any difference in content. It adjusts accordingly to the smaller screen size of a mobile phone.

A minimalistic design manages to gain attention at first glance. The attention of the visitor will be focused on the video on the homepage. It has an irresistible offer to people who will benefit from marketing strategies that work but do not cost a fortune to implement.

As you continue to scroll down the homepage, you will discover more content on traffic generation, conversion, retargeting and nurturing. These may not mean a thing to some visitors but for businesses, they are the magic words that will generate sales and profitability.

Content is organized accordingly like a story. As the user continues to scroll down the page, more content unfolds to show what capabilities the digital agency can offer to clients. FREE is always a word that attracts the most attention. Because the 30-minute strategy session is free, it is very likely for users to grab the offer. To get a free report, a user must provide the name, contact information, website and email address which is one of the most effective ways to gain leads.

Last but not the least is the navigation menu at the bottom of the page. Users are more familiar with navigation on the top of homepage but they can be comfortable with bottom navigation. It is pretty simple and closely resembles what appears on the mobile phone screen. However, as you click on the Contact us page, the drama beings with an interactive slider that users can’t resist. It adds a visual effect to the web page while delivering an important message to users.

Web Design Critique: Seek

Responsive-768x484

When it comes to finding a job, things like online profiles, online King Kong marketing reviews and the like matter. Of course, with a lot to keep track of, it helps to ensure that everything’s properly organized, to make sure that people can easily find companies, and vice versa. Seek.com.au got the message, and did pretty well, with a clean, well-organized site with a professional aesthetic.

The site sports the classic ‘cool blue and white’ color scheme, primarily using navy blue as its secondary color, as shown by the company logo sporting these very colors. For emphasis, brighter shades of blue are used on the text, like with the titles and summaries of reviews. A good look at the King Kong marketing reviews on the site will show that they all have bright blue text to highlight the text. Variations in color exist depending on the subsection, which not only allow for easy reading, but identification; in the case of a visitor accidentally clicking the wrong link, they’ll immediately notice even without looking at the address thanks to the colors.

The standard black text to white background is seen here, and does the job of keeping the site clean rather well.

Where SEEK shines, though, is in its organization. At the top of every page are 4 links to its 4 sub-sites: Jobs, Courses, Businesses for Sale, and Volunteering, letting visitors to the site get to the section that they want to without having to do any scrolling whatsoever. Not everyone needs a job after all; some people are just volunteers or are looking for education.

As mentioned before, the specific sub-sections have their own tertiary colors to help keep them distinct from the others; Jobs sticks to navy blue, Businesses for Sale mixes it up with sky blue, while Courses, and Volunteering set themselves apart by sporting a green, and purple and pink color scheme, respectively.

As for the content itself, it’s all organized into little boxes, keeping things easy to read and understand. Key pieces of information are all sorted out, easy to set apart from the rest. This is made easy by the fact that the site doesn’t rely on particularly verbose content to get its point across; it’s more reliant on a good mix of visual media, bits of text, and good organization to present an appealing environment for people looking for employment or employees.

Overall, it’s a very good effort, with little issues. There really isn’t a lack of content, though a bit of elaboration might be useful, and the main menu doesn’t stick to the top of the browser, forcing people to scroll up if they want to navigate.

For a company of web designers, it’s important that they present themselves properly; that their own site is a well-designed, well-put together project that has the user’s experience at the core of its construction. And, truth be told, it’s doing pretty well.

One of the key principles in designing a site is to make sure that any visitor doesn’t have questions as to what the site is about. Every page greets visitors with the page’s name, as well as its purpose in big, bold, black text, which stands out quite nicely from its white background. The site’s easy to scan, as well, with strategically placed images and videos to help with the endeavor.

Content, appropriately enough, is designed for easy scanning. There’s little not a lot of text to work with, but what is there is informative and helpful enough that it’s not too big of an issue. Images and videos are strewn about the pages, which mean that there’s always something to divert one’s attention to. Some images even sport a grape color filter over them to help them stick out from the rest of the page, without being too distracting. For any images that get the same treatment, white text is used, allowing for easy reading and contrast.

As for overall color scheme, the site sticks to grape as its highlight color, combined with the standard monochrome shades of white, grey, and black. The main menu, which sticks to the top of the page is the same color as the background, with only a grey line separating it from the body. While this can be hard to distinguish from the background at times, the judicious use of visual media and the color grape means it’s distinguishable.

Every page doesn’t take long to load, and is designed more for an easier flow and segmentation. Content that might’ve been walls of text are spread across different pages, maintaining the easy-to-scan, simple, and compact aesthetic. While there might be some issues with loading based on the visitor’s connection, the site itself doesn’t really take long or act up in any way that’s detrimental to the overall experience.

Overall, KDG’s site is pretty much what one would expect a site made by web designers for web designers to look like. Neat, polished, and informative without being bland, it’s an example of what good web design can do for a site.

Web Design Critique: Affordable Dental Solutions

Web Design Critique: Affordable Dental Solutions

When someone looks up things like “how do dental implants work”, they want their answers delivered to them as quickly and conveniently as possible. Affordable Dental Solutions got the memo well enough, but they might’ve overdone it. Or underdone it. Either can work.

First off, Affordable Dental Solutions’ theme is quite well done. Simple colors, clean divisions, and distinct images; helped by the choice of slapping color filters onto them. The layout’s easy to understand and browse through, and finding something you want and/or need isn’t the slightest bit difficult. Straightforward and easy to use, the UI has no glaring weaknesses, other than, maybe, being a bit dull at times. There’s a few sections differentiated with light grey backgrounds, while some have white backgrounds, the same color as the header, which can make them blend into each other when people scroll down.

First thing that’ll greet visitors to the site are the contact details for the firm, as well as a big, blue button for requesting an appointment. It sets the tone of the site well; they know their target audience, what they want, and they plan to deliver. At the bottom of the site, are additional links that help with navigation and finding nearby locations.

As for loading, there’s little of that to be done, which is really good, and helps give it a solid user experience. It can’t be stated enough; the site is great, with a clean, professional layout. It knows what it wants to do. If one were to ask “how do dental implants work”, then one would find it easily.

A few of the pages, however, are decidedly lacking in content, showing an uneven distribution. The important pages, like explanations for services and ‘About Us’ page are nice and full, but the others aren’t.

There’s also only one banner image for the whole site, with another footer image. There are customer testimonials, but there’s only so many of them, both excerpts and videos, and they’re reused; once for the service that particular patient had, and the ‘Patient Stories’ page.

There’s nothing particularly bad about ADS’s site, and its content is solid, but it needs to set itself apart a bit more, and embrace a more distinct identity. What it’s got works, it could just use a bit of personality.

Fast Facts About Palatal Expanders

Fast Facts About Palatal Expanders

Generally, palatal expanders are a type of orthodontic device fitted to those who want to prevent or correct crossbites and teeth crowding. The procedure is generally recommended to those who have not yet reached their puberty stage or children below 14 or 15 years old. Adults can also wear palatal expanders but it is generally recommended by orthodontists for adults to get the removable type since adult bones are already harder to move. Look for qualified and experienced orthodontics to ensure that you will get high quality service without breaking the bank. The price range for palatal expander varies depending on the treatment required and the age of the patient.

Advantages and Disadvantages  

One of the positive things about having a palatal expander is that your child’s potential or current orthodontic issues are immediately corrected. The older the patient gets, the harder it is to fix the dental problem, not to mention, more costly. Another advantage of palatal expanders is it aids in enabling the child to breathe easier, which is beneficial for those with sleep apnea. Crossbites, which affects speech and the way the child chews his or her food may also be treated with the procedure.

However, the entire treatment can be costly. It can reach up to $3,000, depending on the severity of the correction needed and the child’s age. The procedure can also cause minor discomfort while the expansion is happening.

Caring process

While one is undergoing the process, dental hygiene is highly recommended. While kids are wearing the palatal expander, it is important for them to clean and brush their teeth every after eating. They can also use mouthwash with anti-bacteria to prevent cavities and decay. Expert dentists also recommend the use of toothpaste with fluoride to strengthen the teeth and protect them from damage.

Another important caring tip, not just for those who are wearing palatal expanders, but for everyone, especially young children, is to visit a dentist for check-up, at least once every six months or depending on the need. Through the check-up, the dentist or orthodontists can determine the areas that require more attention and how to keep one’s teeth and gums healthy.
