Why Do So Many Websites Look the Same?

Today’s internet is bland. Consequently, everything looks the same: generic fonts, no layouts to speak of, interchangeable pages, and an absence of expressive visual language.

– Boris Muller, Medium Daily Digest

There’s a growing ‘sea of sameness’ out there, and worse, the sea levels seem to be rising.

Unique Website Design Captures Attention

To illustrate, below we list a few of our projects where originality was a major design feature. They are working for a broad spectrum of companies, from an artist in Tampa Bay, a children’s theater in New York State, to an architect in San Francisco. Some are old (very old, pre – “mobile first”), some are recent.

3 Dimensions

3 dimensional elements can engage your site visitor in interactive and interesting, “hands on” ways, like real “shopping”. The websites of large companies with mega buck project budgets have been using 3D for some time. Today powerful new tools are expanding the reach of these engaging features. Click on the shirt image below to see a sample of how 3 dimensional elements engage customers. When the sample image page comes up in a new page, use your mouse and mouse wheel to rotate and drag the shirts to see it from all angles. To return to this page just close the new one.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) – A must have for E-Commerce

We can set you up with a SSL Certificate. Your URL will change from “http://your-site.com” to “https://your-site.com”.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are industry standard cryptographic protocols designed to provide transaction security over the internet.

All websites that have any e-commerce components are expected to have a SSL Certificate installed on their website hosting web server. Soon all sites, even those without e-commerce content, will want to have SSL installed or a notice is inserted by the search engines stating that the site may not be secure…. Besides it looks cool to have the “https” show up in your url …
