There are many situations in which a do-it-yourself approach is cost effective and often rewarding. Web design isn’t necessarily one of them.

These days, many businesses rely on a bare bones website to make up their complete online profile. That’s a big mistake. As a Utah web designer, I see this for both local businesses and those targeting a much larger national or global audience. They often rely on basic, inflexible templates to put up useful contact information, often using ClipArt graphics or other easily accessible design elements to complete the picture.
