Looking for a Glenwood Springs website designer? Indomedia builds affordable websites and provides startup packages that include everything you need to launch your new business including graphic design for your logo, business cards, and signage. We use WordPress as our design platform so it’s super easy to take anywhere with you or have nearly anyone work on it in the future. It’s the perfect platform for starters or existing businesses looking to get ahead.
Your website design will be largely based on your logo, color preferences, and input on preferences you may see on other websites. WordPress sites are typically built using templates as a starting point.
All WordPress sites consist of a base theme, a layout or design template, and typically a page builder. If you need help getting started, here are some basic options outlined. Each project will be different, so this is just a rough guide to help you gather your ideas and materials.
Astra or OceanWP Themes:
This build option uses a streamlined & optimized theme paired with Elementor page builder. For base themes, we recommend Astra or OceanWP. Both are free but offer pro versions that we recommend. Both of these themes are both among the most popular, built for speed and SEO, and offer exceptional support. The design and content will be edited with a page builder such as Elementor, Visual Composer, or Beaver Builder.
The design & layout will be created from your choice of their template libraries. For budget builds, you can build a great website with no recurring software fees. Our site is built on the Astra theme with the Elementor page builder. Take a look at Astra designs and WP Ocean designs for your Glenwood Springs design project. The cons are the designs are more barebones than the other options so read on for more design options.
Divi Theme & Page Builder:
Check out the designs for the Divi theme. Divi has a large user base and excellent design templates, they are some of the best designs you can find. You won’t be able to choose your page builder as theirs is built in. Think of Divi like Apple, you are limited to their ecosystem but it’s top notch so you won’t mind. Divi requires fees for updates, $249 lifetime or $89/year.
Specialty Sites & Elaborate Designs:
The third option is to select a industry specific premium theme with all required software (plugins) already tested and incorporated into the website. Premium templates typically use either Elementor, Beaver Builder, or Visual Composer page builders. If your project is an online store, a directory, a membership site, or any other specialty, you will want to look into themes at Theme Forest. Premium themes are usually $60 one-time fee and include free updates for life. Sort by popularity to see which themes have a large user base and has a history of providing frequent and continuing updates. Check out Theme Forest for the largest selection of premium themes. Most of these themes provide multiple layouts so don’t forget to scroll down and see what they look like.
Additional Services and Options
Mobile Compatibility vs Separate Mobile Websites:
All websites in today’s environment need to be built with mobile in mind, as most of your traffic may come from phones and tablets. Most current themes will automatically “switch on” to mobile view although some clients may want a separate site developed specifically for mobile users. The ability of a desktop design to change the layout for the user is called “responsiveness”, and can be configured for desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones. Our sites are built to be fully responsive and we can create a separate theme for mobile if requested.
Client and Employee Access
WordPress allows us to provide levels of access to protect the website. We are happy to provide the customer with full administrator abilities and recommend user specific roles for vendors and employees.
