Successfully you have hired a freelance web designer Singapore for your website design and development. Your website designer has requested a few answers from you for a set of questions, normally known as a website design questionnaire. As a business person you only know that you need a website which could help you bring in leads but not sure of how to answer the questions your web designer is requesting for. Not many freelancers are ready to help you with a step by step process or guide you through the technical aspects of a website. Few of the website designers are not even ready to heed ears to your requirements and just pass their questionnaires to you to fill. This article will help you in detailing the key factors you need to know as a website owner before approaching a freelance web designer in Singapore.

What is a Website Design Questionnaire?

You are a business owner and you want to hire a freelance web designer or a web design agency in Singapore. You have approached your web designer with a requirement of developing your website but you are not sure what are the inputs you need to provide to your web designer. Likewise, as a freelance web designer you are being approached by a client for a web design project, a professional freelancer before accepting the project will first analyse the requirements, brainstorm the website requirements with the client and provide the best solution and costing. To make this process simple web designers have a set of questions to be answered by the client. This set of questions also called web design questionnaires are given to clients for their input is important. This questionnaire will help your freelance web designer to understand your requirements as well as for the clients to know what they will have as an output of their web design and their business requirements. This questionnaire is either in pdf or word document or some has online forms to be filled.

Why should you use a Website Design Questionnaire?

Your client has approached you for a website design project and you want to be on the same page as your clients, some of your clients or as a web designer you might feel this is unnecessary as you have all the information when you discuss. What if during the course of the project you have missed some of the key information and nearing completion of the website, this creates unnecessary confusion in the project delivery and leads to an unhealthy relationship with your client. Inorder to avoid this sort of miscommunication you need to be on same page as the client, this questionnaire is also a documentation of the requirements of your project. 

Some of the website design questionnaires also help to gather information like final deliverable, scope of the project, budget of the project etc. however gathering the necessary information is essential rather than extending the questionnaire with too many questions. This website design questionnaire comes in picture to document all the requirements of the project.

Essential Web Design Questions

So what are the questions should you ask your clients or as a client what are the inputs you should provide your website designer. Let’s go through each of the questions that should be asked before starting a project and the answers the client should give for the web design questions.

1. Please tell me about your company

Every web design project starts with an understanding of the business background, when you understand the business domain clearly then you can analyse the target audience more. The general information which your web designer or your Freelance WordPress Designer requires are the following.

  • Business Name
  •  Business Domain
  •  Target Audience ( Websites are intended for generating leads, it is important to learn about your target audience, for eg. if you are into fashion industry are you targeting kids or ladies or men or is it for all)
  •  What does your company do ( A general information about your services or product ranges if any will help to understand more about your company)

2. Approximate number of pages for the website

This information is essential for your web designer to estimate the working hours or to be more precise calculate the timeline of the project and also some of the web designers will have this number of pages to estimate the cost for the project.

3. Do you currently have a website? Please provide the URL.

If  you are hiring a freelance web designer for redesigning your website or a complete revamp of your website then it is necessary to provide the existing website url for the analysis. This information will help your freelancer to learn about why your old website didn’t help to satisfy your requirements.

4. Do you have the site map or list of pages/tabs ready?

Sitemap is nothing but the list of pages that you want in your website. If you are unsure of what are the pages your website should likely have then you can discuss with your freelance web designer to come up with the list of pages based on your business domain. I have listed below the common pages which every informational website should have irrespective of the domain.

List of Pages for a Informational Websites

  • Home Page
  • About Us Page
  • Service Page
  • Gallery/Portfolio Page
  • Contact Us Page
  • FAQ Page
  • Terms and Conditions Page
  • Privacy Policy Page
  • News Page
  • Blog Page

You can choose from the above list of pages based on your preference. If you are going to develop an eCommerce Website Design for your products with an online shopping cart then the list of pages would vary. I have also provided below the list of pages an eCommerce Website should have and also some of the special pages based on some business domains.

  • Products Page
  • Shipping Page
  • Add to Cart Page
  • Cart Details Page
  • Product Detail Page
  • Book an Appointment Page
  • Schedule Page
  • Login Page
  • Sign Up Page

Above are the most commonly used pages for a website design, however if there are any special requirements then you would have those specific pages which you can identify with the help of your web designer.

5. Name 3 things that are most important about the design of your new website.

This question helps to understand the design preferences of your client and also the purpose of this website. This question will help you understand why the client wants to build the new website and what are the most important things he wants to create with this website. If the client wants to create brand awareness and create contact information in the website, contact forms, modern sleek look, minimal graphics.

 6. Name 3 things that are least important in the design of your new website.

Some clients need an online website to showcase their business, such clients do not post more frequently and in such scenarios Newsletter subscription, gathering visitor information, few clients do not prefer to have much images on the website, infographic style images, too much animations etc.

7. Do you have any color preferences; existing brand colors, and/or colors you wish to include?

It is good to stick to your brand colors, however if your brand colors are too soft, it is good to introduce a complementary color which helps to distinguish the Call to Action buttons and key information to the clients. Your website should be based on the brand colors and you cannot deviate much from your original colors. If you have too many colors in your logo, choosing a primary color is important. Your web designer would help you with the best choice of colors from your logo during the design phase.

8. Colors you do not wish to include in your website.

Although this question is not required when you stick to your brand colors, some of the business owners would like to stick to some primary colors and do not wish to include some complimentary colors and have some color choice.

9. What are some existing websites that appeal to you? Provide links if possible.

This question helps to understand the clients design preferences, you can know what are the features that look appealing in the website url they give. For example I have provided some of the websites below as an example for clients to understand how to answer these questions

Web Design Features - Subraa, Freelance Web Designer in Singapore
Website Design Features – Subraa, Freelance Web Designer in Singapore

10. What are some existing websites that don’t appeal to you? Provide links if possible.

Some of the websites will be old fashioned, for example your competitor might have a website which has a boxed layout, however you prefer the websites to be spread out edge to edge. You may feel some websites are too crowded with animations or no clear visibility to content. A poor user interface and usage of fonts or an old fashioned style. This question helps your web designer to avoid the layouts which you feel are not comfortable to have in the new website design.

11. Will this be an e-commerce website? Will you be selling any products or taking payments on your website?

This information is vital to plan the website layout. Also your web designer will use this information to provide you the web design quote. If you are going to accept payments via a website then you need to discuss the best payment methods that are available in your country. Some payment methods have processing charges which are not suitable for a small ecommerce website, your freelance web designer will advise on these payment methods.

12. Is your logo and images ready?

As a web designer it is important to check whether your client has a proper logo to be used in the website. Logo design is the first step to be made for a digital presence. If you are not ready with a logo then it is must to get started with the logo identity before doing the website design. Your website colors are based on your brand identity. Hire a professional logo designer in Singapore for your logo or you can also go for one stop solution provider for your digital needs.

Apart from logo design your website must also have good quality relevant images. If you are not a product based business then you can opt for royalty free stock images to be used in the website based on the services. These images should be relevant to your website and not just some images based on your liking. If you do not wish to use the royalty free stock images then you can opt for a photo shoot. Some of the freelance web designers provide these royalty free images as a complimentary package with the website design, few of the web designers prefer to provide it at an additional cost as their web design prices are already cheap. If you do not wish to spend money on stock images then you can go for free images available from some of the free websites which are marked as licensed to reuse with or without arbitration. 

13. Do you have all write-ups that you would like to be included in your website or do you need any content writing support?

Website Content is the king for any search engines as well as pulling in customers. As a business owner you need to make sure the writeups are ready and are relevant based on the sitemap which you have provided to your freelance web designer. Quality and unique contents are important for your website to be listed in search engines. If you have the writeups ready, provide a soft copy to your web designer. Make sure to provide it in pdf format so your web designer can copy. A scanned writeup is difficult for your web designer to copy the content and there could be mistakes while typing the copy and most web designers do not have time to type your contents.

If you are not ready with your content, speak to your freelance web designer for SEO content writing support, before you do so let them know more about you, why you started this business, what are the services you provide, what is the speciality of your business, how do you differ from your competitors. These information are important for your content writers to write quality content for your website.

14. Do you already have a domain and host setup for your new website? If so, do you have the FTP and host login information accessible? or Would you like to purchase from me?

To explain in simple terms a domain is the website address, when you want a website for your business then you need to have the url for the website, for example www.google.com is the url for google, it is also called the domain name. If you already have a domain purchased from hosting service providers then you need to pass the credentials to your freelance web designer or provide the necessary information he requests for your domain. 

Hosting is the space where you will upload your website files. Domain and hosting are 2 different and they both are required for your website to go live. Freelance web designers in Singapore like Subraa provide free hosting and free (.com) domain for 1 year if you sign up for the website design services. 

If your freelance web designer doesn’t give free hosting and domain, then you need to check with the web designer for the prices and then you can subscribe. But make sure to get the credentials once they do.

15. Do you require any search engine optimization (SEO) help?Note: Add On service

There are many businesses popping up every moment so do the website design and development for every business. When you have a website designed you will have a digital presence but do you know it is important to get recognised by the clients and to be recognised you need to be in the top pages of Google. SEO is not an overnight process and do not expect things to happen in a moment or as soon as your website goes live. Reaching to the top pages of Google organically is not a guaranteed aspect, even by top digital marketing agencies. When you optimise your website gradually to the Google features then you get recognised and rank organically.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is not included during the website design quote by many freelancers as it is recurring on a monthly basis. Subraa, has proven strategies for ranking the businesses on top pages of Google. With very affordable packages you can rank your website on Google.

16. Do you have a horizontal or left-side vertical preference for the main  navigation?

Top horizontal menu bar or the vertical menu bar, which is your preference for the navigation bar. Freelance web designers start working on the web pages with the design phase. You could suggest checking for an option for vertical menu and the other with horizontal menu if you are unsure of which will suit you best.

 17. Would you like to link to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn etc? If so, please provide the links.

Almost every business has social media pages, but it is not mandatory to have accounts in all the social media. If you would like to have social icons integration in your website you need to let the web designer know the social media platforms your business has and the account urls.

18. Do you require Blog Functionality? Note: Add on

Not every business needs a blog and many business owners are not interested to write blogs hence it is not mandatory to have it in all websites and some freelance web designers would have this functionality as Add on services, if you wish to have a blog then let your web designer know about this.

Blogs are important for your SEO agency to boost your website traffic with quality content, hence it is advisable to have a blog if you are planning for SEO.

19. Do you need help updating and maintaining your website? Note: Add on

Websites which are not maintained properly are prone to hacks. WordPress websites should be properly updated to keep the website functioning. Apart from security maintenance, general maintenance services like content update, image update etc are provided by web designers. You can go on hourly or as a package based on your requirements. Some website packages come with 3 month maintenance of the website or upto 1 year as well. Cost varies depending on the months of maintenance. If you are opting for CMS website design then you can do the content update yourself without much programming knowledge.

20. What are the features you would like to have in your website?

If you are very new to website design then this question is difficult to answer, as you are unsure of what a general website should have. For the novice users here is the list of features a website can have.

  • Newsletter
  • Blog
  • Social icon integrations
  • Live Chat
  • Multi language
  • Search
  • Image Gallery
  • Home page Carousel slider
  • Contact Forms
  • News Feeds

There are many other features for a website, speak to your web designer to know the available features for your website.

Conclusion

Every project needs both the client and the web designer to be on the same page and it is important to document every requirement of the client. A website design questionnaire duly filled out helps to avoid confusion during development and helps in smooth process flow.

Understanding the basics of color and the influence it has on people is important for any freelance web designer Singapore or logo designer in Singapore. Brands built over understanding colors wins, colors may help to boost your brand or it can also cause a negative impact on your brand. Colors do not have a consistent reaction on every person, a color which creates an impact on a certain set of people may not cause any reaction in another group of people. Color science is subjective in general.

Web Design Colors - Subraa, Freelance Web Designer Singapore
Web Design Colors – Subraa, Freelance Web Designer Singapore

Usage of colors is an art, not every designer can achieve the best results with the colors.  Humans perceive colors differently, the mix of colors and creating a different shades of contrasting colors are of designers expertise. Colors are of 3 categories, normally identified as primary colors, secondary colors and tertiary colors.

Websites are built for conversion and generating leads, likewise logos are designed for brand awareness and creating a long lasting impression among customers. When the purpose of design is to create emotional influence on visitors isn’t it necessary to pay attention to the colors which would help in targeting your potential customers. A recent study shows choosing the colors and adjusting according to the audience needs helps to increase conversion.

Color Psychology, What is it?

Color psychology, as the term suggests is the science of how colors influence humans. Colors are powerful in creating behavioural factors of how people feel or react. The topic of color psychology is too broad to be discussed as a web designer, hence let’s stop here by giving a brief definition of color psychology. There is no specific definition for a winning color, it is the mix and match of the colors that determines the output.

Using Colors in the right way

Colors are tricky to use, usage of colors requires much understanding and an artistic eye. Combination of colors can either create a positive impact or a negative impact on your business. What is considered as the right way of using colors. A red color usage in the organic products website or a brown or shades of green in a women cosmetics website may not be appropriate. Websites which concentrate on selling women products must focus on the colors which women feel appealing for example a shade of pink, purple works and helps to grab attention. Analyse the purpose, audience to use the colors in the right way.

Colors that helps in conversion

If you have not noticed the colors of the most popular websites which you visit often then revisit the famous social networking websites, you can find all are developed in blue. Website designs or popular networking websites which have blue themes have some influence on the visitors, that doesn’t mean only the color blue helps in conversion and it is only the preferred choice for designing your website. The colors used in the website should be an added advantage to your website and should not turn against your website motive. The psychological usage of colors and the preferences are a vast subject and we are not going in depth in this blog article.

Website Design Colors - Subraa, Freelance Web Designer Singapore
Website Design Colors – Subraa, Freelance Web Designer Singapore

Blue, Purple and Green are preferred colors for the majority of women for the websites and blue, black are preferred by men for their websites. Although orange is considered as a neutral color it is most likely not preferred for the majority of the people. Brown is also not considered as the most preferred color though a good number of websites has brown themes beautifully utilised. Web Designer in Singapore most commonly use Blue shades for the business websites, though some may vary depending upon the branding that is done by the business. Blue is one of the most professional colors preferred by a majority of men and women. Blue is the most used color for any website design. Blue color creates a professional image for your business, it creates a peaceful vibe for your business image, trust and loyalty for your customers.

What is a website color theme?

Website color themes are important for your business, the best website color themes grab user attention. So what exactly is the website color theme? When you approach a  freelance web designer to design your website, the first question your web designer asks is for a logo. When you have the logo ready then you have the branding colors ready. But does your website color theme is based on just your logo then the answer is no. Your logo design colors are the key of the website design but you don’t need to stick to just branding colors. We can introduce some neutral colors which complement the existing colors of your logo. However if you are not having a logo it is better to get your logo designed first before you start designing your website and the color themes.

Is website color theme important?

Your audience is influenced by your website’s color palettes. The color of the website impacts your visitors’ vision of your business/brand. Colors play a key role in conversion and it helps to understand how your customers browse on your website and they click on your CTA (call to action). No customers would like to spend time on a website which has colors which are not appealing or too bright for the eyes. A pleasing website always wins the heart of your audience and helps to click on the CTA. Yellow colors are associated with fun and bright colors like red is for confidence. These color schemes help to project your brand and contribute to conversion by 20%. 

Yes, website color themes are important, the famous brand colors did not come just like that and the colors behind each brand came out of practical experiences. It is interesting to know how the color of coke red came in, I have read online that in olden days the coca cola company painted their barrels in the color of red to distinguish their barrels from the barrels of alcohol during transportation. The purple color in cadbury is most appealing for chocolate lovers and is marked as a tribute to a queen. Likewise, some famous companies do not stick to colors, for example Google has multiple colors in their logo and they don’t pay much importance to the color schemes.

What do each Colors mean?

There has been a lot of research online on the color theory and its influence on the psychological behavior of the visitors. I have provided below the summary of some of the colors, what they represent.

Blue – Reliable, trustworthy and professional. Builds confidence in your brand.
Red – Energy, draw attention, excitement and passion
Green – Environment friendly, eco, organic 
Yellow – Fun, not too serious feel, energy, fire etc.
Orange – Energy, warmth, happiness
Purple – Creativity, luxury, authority, respect
Black – Power, stability, Elegance
White – Purity, happiness, sincerity 
Grey – Professional, sophisticated, strong

Conclusion

As colors influence your customers it is important to avoid too sentimental colors in your website. As said in the above, as a freelance web designer in Singapore it is important to use the colors in the right way and at the right place. But if your company already has a branding color which you feel is not associated with your business then I suggest you revisit the colors that could help reflect your business. But if the colors for your logo are chosen on purpose when you started the business, you are now not more associated with the color brands but with a restriction that you cannot change the colors now then you could introduce some neutral colors for your website or introduce some colors for your new campaigns. Usage of strategic color themes for your promotional ad designs, print materials also helps. Before you do all these changes, you must speak to a freelance web designer or a professional logo designer for understanding the colors that could complement your existing logo colors. Your logo designer or web designer helps to provide color options after testing several color schemes and would suggest the website color schemes which help to win hearts over the web.

Minimalism is everywhere and it is gaining popularity in design and will create a high wave in designs. In this article I have shared the essential features of a minimalist website design.

 

Minimalist Web Design Tips
Minimalist Web Design – Subraa, Freelance Web Designer Singapore

What is minimalist design?

Less is more, this is what minimalist design is known as and you would have heard many of the creative designers or web designers or logo designers say this. Minimalistic also refers to creating design around the content, usage of more white spaces and a limited color palette sticking to your brand. A better compatibility of the design among different screen sizes and better speedy websites are some of the advantages of minimalist website design. In other words, you convey the message directly to your users without too many elements that are distracting the visualisation.

What are the benefits of minimalist web design?

Good designs with focus on key points in the website are achieved through simple web design, this doesn’t mean heavy websites are not effective. Simple website designs help in conversion.

Minimal designs help to focus on content, according to the latest Google algorithm content is king. Customers can easily focus and find the key services without much distraction.

Website loading speed is also an important factor in ranking your website in SERP. Minimalist design helps to achieve faster loading speed of the website.

Your website should work best in all screen sizes, as mobile users grow in numbers, shopping on the go or searching for services while on the move is increasing and minimalist design helps to display the key information to the best without much change in layout.

4 Essential Features of Minimal Web Design

A seamless user experience is created with minimalist design, following are the key essential features of creating a minimalist design which helps in conversion.

 1. Content and Space
While designing a website, take the essential features and build your design around these essential contents. Remove all unwanted elements or the elements which is distracting the key components. First segregate the content and the features, keep only the essential features in the website which are important for your audience. How do you distinguish between key content and generic content? When you are done with the write ups for the website and decide the functionality of the sections of the web page then revisit the writeups, try to figure out whether this content is essential or is it only for decoration purposes. If you are not able to know whether to keep this content or let it go then you can hire a freelance web designer in Singapore who can guide you through the process. Web Designers like Subraa start designing the website by first doing the wireframe based on the writeups. This helps to place the essential contents in the home page and move everything else in the inner pages or help to move the contents out with excess details.

“ Top page for the most relevant contents. Conversion of Visitor to prospective customer is based on the first content they see in your website”

2. Fonts / Typography
A clean and legible typography contributes more to the minimalist web design. Fonts are a more important choice that needs to be considered. Thin fonts or bold fonts doesn’t matter, you need to be creative in the usage of fonts and make sure it grabs the attention of your visitors. When in minimalist web design usage of images and animations are reduced the usage of content plays the major role in defining the hierarchy. Fonts helps to let your visitors know where they should go in your website to know the details or services. Usage of fonts should be consistent across the website and in devices. A crisp and clean font style is preferred for minimalist approach and the preferred choice of font by most of the web designers is Sans Serif fonts.

3. Choose Images
The influence of image on visitors is proven and designers try to use the images at the right place and in the right size so they could visually appeal to the customers. Minimalist web design is not just the usage of fonts and removing all the images or illustrations in the web page. Your Website Designer Singapore will help to identify the places where you can use the images. The right proportion of usage of images is allowed in minimalist web design. You create a focal point of your key services or CTA with the usage of images. Images should be of HD quality and not blurry images. Images of good quality helps to gain user attention when I say images, it should not be only for filling up the space and for decorating the web page relevant usage of images like if you have products a good photo shoot of your product in a bright background helps. If you offer services, then images related to your services help.

4. Play with Colors
A background color texture for your web page can also make the difference, it is not necessarily an image that should be used in the main landing page. Colors can be used as a contrast to the background or it can be used to highlight the key functionality of the website. Experimenting with colors will only help to achieve the best results. There is no definite choice of colors in minimalism and designers achieve the greatest combinations of colors only through experiments. But make sure to use a limited number of colors in your website, highlight your elements with contrasting colors that help to gain attention and colors also help to influence the emotions of the user. A good visual presence is achieved with the contrast colors.

What are the challenges?

As a freelance web designer Singapore when it comes to accomplishing minimalist website design you could have faced difficulties in clearing the visual clutter as clients reach out to you to design a minimalistic web page, however overload the page with too many contents and elements, where they believe that everything is necessary to project their values. However professional web designers can help to add in more white spaces, segregate the elements based on the hierarchy and come out with a good design which clients need to understand. Too many things in a section can cause distraction and deviating from the key CTA.

Minimalism requires experience and only a web designer with good flare to design and ample experience can help to achieve the results. Many times inexperienced designers understand the concept of minimalistic design as just using white spaces and make the webpage ineffective for the usage missing all the key details and navigation systems. The hidden navigation system as a user with less knowledge in websites is difficult to figure out and hence leading to the higher bounce rate.

To summarise, highlight the key CTA with contrasting colors, usage of sharp fonts and high quality images will help to nail down the design. Minimalist design approach is a trend which has been evolving through the ages and no wonder it will continue to evolve and will have a unique significance among other websites.
