The explosion of the internet over the past 20 years has led to the development of one of the newest creative mediums: the website. Web designers have adapted through the technological developments of html, CSS, Flash, and JavaScript, and have mastered the balance between creativity and usability. Now with the advance of mobile, the greatest websites have taken user experience and responsive design to the next level, and continue our evolution from print to a digital world.

Adelaide SEO says:

For me the looks of the website is the very first impression to the visitors. Of course content is still king when it comes to the ranking on search engine and leads generation.

SimplyGoon says:

I know content is king but it seems to me a lot of designers are putting aesthetics on the back burner these days. Id like to see more artistic and creative designs on the web. Dont get me wrong they are out there but too far in between in my opinion. 

Peter Hatherley says:

This is a good primer on the various mediums of creative web design and development with tablets, desktop and smartphone. Amazing what you can find out in 7 minutes about your own website's potential. Compare it against the thought that went into your own marketing and development.

really nice site, but a lot of website owners don't realize that average time people spend in their sites are about 10-20 sec. Increase it by adding some more interactive content like spokesperson etc. tamtamtools. com
