Who should be the Audience? Who should be the Target?

“My target audience is a C-Suite executive” is a statement heard too often. In layman’s term a C-Suite used for chief executive. At times the statement may be true as the B2B market has evolved and it will continue to do so. The question is do you remember when was the last time a C-Suite executive called you to inquire about your product?

 

A C-SUITE EXECUTIVE should be your audience, not the target audience

By a popular research, the B2B audience is becoming younger. More than half all B2B researchers are Millennial, and they have grown in number quite rapidly. The answer is the target audience to be reached is none other than Millennials. Why do so? It is because they are the ones who learn about your product or service so they can sell it to the C-Suite executive for final sign off.

Outstanding Response to Responsive Web Design

Ethan Marcotte in the year 2011 coined the word ‘Responsive Web Design’ for easy change in web designs and for flexible site foundations and layouts. The demand for this arose due to the developing device and gadgets of various sizes.

Outstanding Response to Responsive Web Design

The web is not limited to any device it could be accessed to from anywhere in the world whether it is through a phone or a video game console, it fits the need of every single device as far it has a static layout. Imagine if the same was to be applied on an auto design, designing a car that is small, efficient, cost-effective, great for commuting, racetrack ready, equipped for off-roading with a family, suitable for anybody in any situation.

Medical on Mobile: Essentials of Responsive Design in the Healthcare Industry

What is the size of the gadget that you are reading this article on? A 4-inch phone or an 8-inch tablet or a 15-inch laptop or a 27-inch desktop? Are you stuck and hassled in swiping and pinching and zooming to see the content? Or is everything just right and legible?

The point here is that the visitors vary on the types of gadgets that they use so will their screen size vary. In the current time mobile and tablet are the smart and universal devices and the sites are more likely to be accessed on one of these platforms. Now this leads to the question: Does your site provide a great user experience, keeping aside what are the device and gadgets the visitors may use?

▶ Agencies in Ahmedabad, Do you use freelance web designers? ◀

▶ Agencies in Ahmedabad, Do you use freelance web designers? ◀

I have been chatting to some of my regular agencies about their use of freelancers, and if they tell their end client that they employ freelancers to work on projects with them. I am curious as to how many agencies out there are happy to use freelancers to take on extra or overflow work, and if so, are you open with your clients about it?

I think most agencies use the term of ‘digital consultant’ when referring to me and what I did on their projects, it makes things sound much more professional than ‘a freelancer’ – but it amounts to the same thing.

Chatting to an account director friend of mine, we decided that on the whole, there are more pros than cons of using a good freelancer for your work – but what do you think? Please leave your comments below as I would be interested to know.

Who is afraid of cheap logos & websites?

Who is afraid of cheap logos & websites?

If there’s one thing that scares freelance designers even more than the prospect of cheaper competitors learning to design and offering it at a cheap price, it’s that someone in Ahmedabad will open a startup that can automate design – thus putting the last nail in our coffin.

When companies like 99 Designs & Fiverr offered super cheap logos, the design community was pissed, but it was still a real designer behind the logo. Now new companies like square-space and Tailor Brands with funding and press behind them, offer totally automated logos, and we start to wonder where the world of design is headed and whether we really should have gone to med school like Mom wanted us to.

In this post I’m going to explain why I’m actually cool with this startup trend, or at least why I’m not too afraid of it.

KISS – Keep It Simple, Stupid! – In Web Design Terms.

KISS – Keep It Simple, Stupid! – In Web Design Terms.

Right guys and girls, a quickie is here again and this time I am focussing on design, but more specifically, on designing something that is fit for the job it is meant to do. Well all know the saying, KISS – Keep it simple, stupid!

Every bit of design should do a job, and I’m sorry people, but that job is not to look pretty! Don’t get me wrong, it’s a bonus if something looks great, but what is much more important than that, is when a design hits a brief square on. Your design should do everything possible to make the user’s experience better.

Now some people will say “user experience designers do that, we just make it look pretty” – well sorry to say, that is horse-crap! If all you can do is make something look pretty, then you aren’t a designer for modern communications.

The Social Network

The Social Network

Ok, ok, so I am a bit behind the times, only having just watched The Social Network, but if you are in my industry, and enjoy doing what I do, this movie can only want to make you go and create the next big thing.

Social networks have been done to death, they are a saturated market, there must be something out there that hasn’t been done yet and is ripe for the picking!
