How to keep your website fresh
After seeing a customer today who has a bespoke website, something they said reminded me of something that I must keep uppermost in my mind. They asked me to make some changes to the colours and layout of their website. Not because there was anything wrong with the current design, but because it was starting to feel a bit old.
Familiarity breeds contempt
I felt a bit put out inside as there design is one of which I was especially proud. It looks clean, modern and efficient and the colour scheme looks excellent. However, I deed not have taken this to heart because the reason they are tired of the design is because they have been looking at it every day for the past few years.
If you think about it, we do this all the time on our lives. We decorate our houses and can be very proud of the great job we have made. However, after a few years we feel a need for a change. Not because we decorated it badly before, but just because we want something fresh.
So if you think your website is looking a bit tired but cannot quite put your finger on what it is that is causing this feeling, it could simply be that it is time for a change.
