The Fine Arts of Engineering
Creating a website these days is a bit different than a years ago, however it shares the major challenge - interoperability and compatibility. Back in the dark times during reign of Internet Explorer 6 it was tricky to have a website that looked the same on each of market browsers. Especially that some major player named Firefox started implementing various nice features, while leaving popular browser behind. Developers either had to choose to target older browsers, leave most users with weird looking websites - or use the proper approach with various tricks and hacks to make Internet Exploder (nicknamed) work in a bit more modern fashion.
Now web designers have a lot more expressive options to design
websites with CSS and if properly used it looks pretty
much pixel perfect on
each desktop browser. The new requirement is to
have a websites that work properly on devices with different
displays, starting from small mobile phones for up
to 4K monitors or even more. With proper
technique the layout of a website can stretch and rearrange
depending on the device screen resolution. On large devices the
content can be presented in columns similar to those
of paper gazette while switching to rows on
devices with smaller screen real estate.
Designing website starts with the meeting and knowing the person
or company who would like to create it's internet representation.
Only after knowing in person the website investor ensure success
and satisfaction of created website. Knowing about company
operations, products or services helps greatly in preparing
website design and preliminary structure. After knowing each
other personally and having some general overview of requirements
the next phase of site creation is to prepare draft design and
scaffolding of structure. The design evolves in time allowing

While preparing the design surely part of the website content
will be added to website with our content management system, but
building successful internet presence requires a lot of
preparation of texts to showcase the company highlights, key
achievements, current operations. The content can be extended
further after initial website publication, and in fact to leave a
good impression on your visitors it
is required to have up to date information and
possibly company news with more and more popular company blogs.

purchaser side, as he knows best know-how about company.
