4 Ways an Expert Web Designer can Stand Out from the Crowd

by aditidatta on October 9, 2013

Web Design

While business entrepreneurs increasingly realize the importance of having a well- designed and developed website, there is a high demand for the expert and experienced web designers.

Now, these days, there is a lot of discussion on the concept of web designing and even the newest techniques, strategies and methods implemented in the given field. Consequently, people with little knowledge or expertise consider themselves as being qualified designers.

But the fact is that they are just aware of the tools like Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. The web designers working with any reputed and recognized web design company posses certain abilities that justify their position as web or UI designers.

If you are a website designer, you must ensure standing out from any other person who claims himself or herself as one.

Here is an overview of how expert designers can differentiate themselves and convince clients that they can come up with the best- possible outcome.

Be Innovative

Web designing involves a striking blend of creativity and technology. The USP of any good designer is the remarkable ideas that he has. One can master the skills of using the software tools but when it comes to conceptualization, a professional stands way above the others. It is for this reason that you should showcase your individual ideas and concepts in the portfolio.

People who are looking for genuine designers and innovative works will always emphasize on originality more than anything else.

Do the Extra Bit

Going a little above and beyond what you are assigned to do can work wonders in establishing your credibility.

For instance, if you are asked to design the logo for a particular business organization, you can consider sending your clients with two or three mock- ups or additional design concepts.

This will be beneficial in two aspects. Firstly, it will make the clients believe that you have taken enough interest in the work while also having the required expertise to provide them with the mock ups.

Secondly, mock ups allow the clients to understand the sincerity of your efforts. This is for the obvious reason that people who claim themselves to be web designers will hardly be able to produce additional work without concepts.

Put Emphasis on Your Appearance

The present- day age is too competitive and it requires every individual professionals as well as companies to market themselves well.

Doing good work is just not enough for there are hundreds of people with very much the same kind of knowledge and expertise, if not more. You need to reach out to the people and bring your talent to their attention in order to get the desired exposure and emerge successful.

It is often found that individuals with lesser capabilities get higher amount of attention somewhat unnecessarily and this is mostly by virtue of the right kind of advertising and promotion.

However, it is always a combination of real knowledge and proper marketing that is most desirable.

A web design company must have a well- designed website, which will automatically create the very first positive impression in the minds of the traffic and often convert them into potential clients.

Similarly, an individual web designer should design his portfolio in an attractive manner. Introducing a theme for the portfolio and featuring the best works in it makes the clients believe that they are investing on the right service- provider.

Share Your Knowledge Occasionally

If you are in the field of web designing, you must consider contributing to the design community. You can do this by means of uploading freebies, blogging, putting up tutorials and templates on your website and even giving out some free design works for charitable purposes.

All this makes you better recognized in the field and you might gradually turn out to be a sought- after professional in due course of time.

There is no denying the fact that real talent always gets its value. However, the above- mentioned techniques can certainly help you make your mark in the field of website and UI designing, no matter how many people are there to compete with you or claim that they can be of substantial help for business enterprises. Implementing these methods enable you to stay relevant and popular.

Helpful techniques, Aditi.

From the 4 methods cited in your article, the most noteworthy for me is to contribute to the design community by sharing one’s knowledge. This method will help the designer exhibit his skills and expertise to his community. As a result, people from the design community will surely acknowledge his contribution and will consider his coaching expertise.

Nice article,I liked some of tips that to send some 2 0r 3 mocks up to your clients and to share knowledge, but why occasionally if your developer you should share your knowledge always that’s what i think.

This is well written Aditi. It is really important to make your mark and when you get the customers, the way you deal with them will also help in keeping them and getting referrals. An option just like you mentioned is to give them more than one option in your mock-up, exceed their expectation and deliver on time.
