Web designers not only have to meet their clients’ needs but have to work alongside other professionals and key stakeholders as well. One area where they will need to work with others is when it comes to the web content.
For those that don’t think that content is important one only must look back at a piece of news that was released a few years ago. The USA talked about how one important site was going to revamp their site so it would contain more value-added content. Then moving up to the recent news for today regarding content it would seem like Diply was on the right track. As of today, even large news sites are re-designing their website so they are more responsive and content is easier to access.
How Do Web Designers Affect Web Content?
Web designers must know a lot about the content that is going to be used on the sites that they are developing. They create the framework for the site. Within this framework, the content must be placed.
Amount of space and the layout are the two main concerns for the web designer. In the case of a site like Diply that is going to make substantial changes to their content, the web designer may have to re-design the site to accommodate this. This isn’t a problem when the content is being restricted to blog pages or internal web pages. It becomes more of an issue when it is dealing with home pages or other landing pages.
The Importance of Content
There is a classic saying that goes around the web: content is king. But, without a good web designer it won’t serve its purpose well. Content only goes so far unless there is a design and interface to present it on.
