A Website Designer –Elements of Modern Web Design
Website designers are busy introducing more and more new elements and styles in website design. Some of the new elements greatly improve user experience. Thoughtful design elements can improve how a website looks and promotes your business. With so many options for companies to choose from, it can be quite a challenge to select just the right one that is going to meet their needs and impart the information they want.
There are several important elements a website designer can integrate into a modern website design that can help you choose what to include to improve your website’s performance.
A unique font can promote brand recognition so customers can immediately identify your particular business. Typography uses one design trend across the website to lead readers to different parts of the page. The choice in typography can indicate subtle hints about who you are as a business entity and what your function is. Website designers have many fonts and typography styles to choose from and when combined with their creativity and skills can build a successful website.
Large Responsive Hero Images
With just a large image with text a website designer can create strong visual interest that encourages users to scroll down the page to read more. Modern website designers often place the images in the background with text and other content overlaid on top. This can help visually tell your story without having to rely on text alone. Responsive images make for good user experience, whether the images are background or product images.
Videos that automatically play in the background are a brilliant way to engage users and help them to see the key points that you want to project about your company without the user having to read a single line of text. Modern website designers use background videos to make more interesting, compelling websites that can help grow your business.
Flat or Semi-flat Design
Any element that does not feature the perception of three dimensions, such as shadows, is flat design. It is easy for users to comprehend, and can load more quickly on websites without overly-technical design elements. Semi-flat design elements with shadowing create depth and help users understand your website content more quickly. A modern website designer can create a website using a flat design or introducing shadows and other elements.
Many websites have a long menu of options for page visitors to choose from to take them directly to their target. A disadvantage of this type of menu is that it can take up a lot of valuable screen space. Alternatively, a hidden menu, sometimes referred to by the web designer as a hamburger menu, provides a cleaner path, free of distractions, helping users find the information they need quickly and efficiently.
Large Product Images
In modern website design, many websites display large product images on their websites to highlight the different features or parts of their product. Larger product images help a website designer highlight different features of a product in a more efficient and effective way. This approach is used to highlight featured products, providing information to users through images instead of words.
The modern website designer makes use of the card design element to distribute information visually. Page visitors can more easily perceive items of content without being overwhelmed with a large body of text. Users can pick and choose which articles they want to expand and pass over those that hold no interest for them. The use of the card design element cuts down on clutter making the homepage cleaner and more organized. Using a responsive card design element on your company website helps highlight multiple products or information.
Short Feature Videos
In trending modern website design, the use of short product or feature videos is an effective way to highlight a specific feature or product. Shorter videos do not overwhelm page visitors who are not interested in sitting through a lengthy video to reach the content they are looking for. Website designers are skilled in helping create responsive design elements such as a short feature video to enhance user experience while meeting client expectations.

We hired KC Web Specialists to create a website for our neighborhood homeowner's association. We had certain items we... knew we wanted to include and Chris and his team walked us through the process suggesting the most current methods of accomplishing our goals. We ended up with an attractive and modern website that is easy for our residents to use and after some training, easy for us to administer. When we've had occasional questions, our support specialist, Jeff is available and responsive. I'm not "website savvy", but Jeff patiently walks me through the administrative side, showing me how to accomplish a particular task I may be having trouble with. Overall, we've been exceptionally pleased with both the website building process, the website itself, and the support we have received since the site went live.Woodland Reserve Community AssociationCarol Foiles - website administratorread more

Jeff took my requests and enhanced everything I asked for and brought a lot of things to the table that I did not even know I needed. The name "Web Specialists" really is an accurate description.

Who is the crazy competitor who left a weird review is what I want to know 2 year's ago? I would HIGHLY view that as... 'suspect" -based on my own companies dealings with them and Chris. WE LOVE our website and technical support. We have had our website with them for over 3 year's+ and had only one issue which was NO fault of theirs as a foreign website hacked into ours-cyber warfare is a real thing. I get my question's answered within hour's and minutes, billing is same situation and reasonable prices compared to what I see around town . I don't want to share them too much for fear they will get too busy but they are the real deal. Going to launch another new website and rest assured I am calling them first.read more

We had a bit of a bumpy start with KC Web Specialists in that I'm not sure they were used to working with a company who... had put as much thought and planning into our website prior to meeting with them as ours. That said, we were extremely please with the finished product.

I am very concerned about all the 5 star feedback.I was in the process of writing unfavorable feedback and they tried... to offer discounts. I did not accept this. Rather, I am going to state the honest truth. Other businesses need to know. You set aside a certain budget for web development and you think you are going to stay within that budget. Not a chance. I blew my budget beyond belief. They were "nickling and diming" me. I had no choice as I already paid a large deposit. Please continue reading this feedback.Right away we had problems with the website after it went live. From the website functions, to email, links, etc. The cost of not having a fully functional website as promised cost us dearly. After the site went live, they referred me to their technical support team. In some cases, I would email very simple yes/no questions. One liners that were truly yes/no questions. For their technical team to respond, they charged me a minimum of 15-30 minutes at $80-$90/hour. Well over $150k a year. "It takes time for them to investigate"...I was told. Anytime I would ask questions regarding issues...and I had plenty as there were so many things wrong with the website that should have been fixed prior to my site going live, I was being charged $80-$90/hour. Usually it was a lot more than that. When it was all said and done...and after all the "technical support" fees, I would have been much better off going with a more expensive web developer.Not to mention the thousands of dollars it cost my company a partial website.This is the honest feedback.....other businesses NEED TO know. They will likely try to contact me to remove this post but I shall not. Small mom and pop shops need to know. Small businesses need to know that have limited budgets.Having said this, I ask that KC Web specialist NOT contact me in anyway shape or form. It will be reported. I will not remove this feedback even if you offer a full refund. Absolutely not. Again, I am asking that you not reach out to me or all my business partners.read more

I really appreciate Chris’s approach to doing business. It’s something I wish other service providers did. He took an... hour of his own time to sit down with me and my business partner and explain his process and how he could benefit our start-up. The counseling session was extremely beneficial and helped us see the sort of opportunities we were missing. He also articulated several things we had never thought of. Chris was thorough in explaining the process to build a website and how he charged. The costs and timeline both were conveyed up front.
