  1. When someone sets up a new site they have a lot of decisions to make. They need to decide, like you’ve said, what kind of site they are going to have and if they are going to do it themselves, or hire someone else to design it and support it for them.

    Colors and fonts are both very important part of web design and will make a big difference in how long people stay on your sit.

    The key when designing a site is to know your visitors.

  9. I used to be fluent in html years ago, but then CSS got big and I lost my edge. =) These days, I just might hire a designer to fashion what I need, because I think it might be a little beyond me at this point. But color and design is just as important as content, because your color scheme can become your brand colors if you think about it. Look at Shell yellow, Ferrari red, FedEx orange and purple. A smart use of color can be your calling card!
