Are you thinking of a redesign for your website? Why should you redesign? Your website redesign should have specific purpose. If your website has been there for 3 years or more, maybe it is time to redesign. If your website is old fashioned, you might scare people before they look at your content.
With redesign, you are bringing new identity for your website. Before redesign you should ask your current reader what do they think about the current design, and the ‘future’ design. You must also pay attention to your website rank in search engine before your redesign, because change of layout may affect your rank. So it is crucial to choose a designer who knows about search engine or hiring both designer and web developer. Designer will only provide the design, while the web developer will do web programming. Hire web programmer who knows SEO.
