Customer Feedback after website upgrade was completed

Was thrilled to get this feedback from Janet:

"This is the second website that Barry and the team have competed for me, as the first site was in need of a facelift.

Time technology and programming have changed rapidly over the past 6 or so years and the results are evident.

The new site is fabulous, and truly shows my business, products and services in a fresh professional and easy to navigate fashion

Barry spent time with me so I understood the new and easy ways to update contents, which I enjoy utilising my skills from my work, and learn new techniques

He is patient and utilises his knowledge of website design to get you thinking outside your business and looking in as a potential customer so you can improve and define your online image."

Website Hosting & Domain Name Changes

Hello All

A couple of quick matters of which you need to be aware...  

Server Maintenance

On 7th November our Web Server will be shut down for a brief period between the hours of 5.00pm & 6.30pm while we apply an upgrade to the processing power which will ensure that we can continue to provide the current speeds on the Server.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause but we’re sure that you will understand that upgrades are necessary from time to time in order to maintain continuity of service.  

New .NZ Domain Names

Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of talk about the new domain names that are being introduced to New Zealand. The availability of names ending in .CO.NZ was running out & some alternative needed to be found.

The new .NZ Domain Names add to (not replace) the existing domain names which means that there are now more opportunities for people wishing to register a domain name in New Zealand.

Many of our customers have decided to protect their Brand &/or keywords by also registering the .NZ version of their existing domain name. Existing owners of .CO.NZ domain names have privileged rights to register the .NZ Version but this only extends to 31/3/15, so we urge you to consider your options as soon as possible.

If you want to discuss how this affects your business please do not hesitate to call.

Customer Feedback from Jan Kiers of Fantails

"From our first meeting I found your conduct very professional.

You took the time to understand our needs and wants which you and your team interpreted spot on. The whole design process was quick and painless. The turnaround between changes / updates were refreshingly fast.

We are very happy with the end result, it represents real good value for money. Our new web-site is beautiful and functional.

I would recommend Webdzinz to anyone looking for a new or a refresh of their current web site. "

Trends in Website Design

At Webdzinz we have been tracking trends in website design for over 12 years now and have observed over the past 15-18 months a strong move towards more simplicity in website design. 

Much of the driving force for this change is the resurrection of the notion that the message is far more important to the reader than the design.  Professional design supports the content rather than the other way around but does so while maintaining a smooth, seamless & attractiveness presentation.

All of this adds up to more sophistication in the design.

You may have detected a lot of 'S' words in this article:
  • Sophistication
  • Smooth
  • Seamless
  • Simple
  • Stylish
  • Sharp
Other words that describe this trend include:
  • Modern
  • Dramatic
  • Minimalistic
  • Clean
  • Crisp lines
Here are links to some examples of site that we have produced over recent times that demonstrate these design principles:

We'd be interested in your thoughts on this design trend.
