What is Desktop Publishing?
The use of a computer to create high end documents that can be printed. Specialized software is used to add copy, photos, graphics and or illustrations to produce documents such as catalogs, newsletters, brochures, books, and other publications, which are then output to a printer.

A particularly important feature of desktop publishing systems is that they enable you to see on the display screen or color laser print out how the document will appear when printed.

Properly speaking, desktop publishing is the technical assembly of digital files in the proper format for printing and/or internet use. In practical use, much of the "graphic design" process is also accomplished using desktop publishing and graphics software and is sometimes included in the definition of desktop publishing.

Website Design

Designing a web site is defined as the arrangement and creation of web pages that in turn make up a web site. A web site might be compared to a book, where each page of the book is a web page.

The content: the substance, and information on the site should be relevant to the site and should target the area of the public that the website is concerned with. The usability: the site should be user-friendly, with the interface and navigation simple and reliable.

The appearance: the graphics and text should include a single style that flows throughout, to show consistency. The style should be professional, appealing and relevant. The visibility: the site must also be easy to find via most, if not all, major search engines and advertisement media.

A web site typically consists of text and images. The first page of a web site is known as the Home page or Index. Some web sites use what is commonly called a Splash Page. Splash pages might include a welcome message, language or region selection, or disclaimer. Each web page within a web site is an HTML file which has its own URL. After each web page is created, they are typically linked together using a navigation menu composed of hyperlinks. Faster browsing speeds have led to shorter attention spans and more demanding online visitors and this has resulted in less use of Splash Pages, particularly where commercial web sites are concerned.

Once a web site is completed, it must be published or uploaded in order to be viewable to the public over the internet. This may be done using an FTP client. Once published, the web master may use a variety of techniques to increase the traffic, or hits, that the web site receives. This may include submitting the web site to a search engine such as Google or Yahoo, exchanging links with other web sites, creating affiliations with similar web sites, etc. See our price list to get an idea of a website design cost. back to services list
