Psychology of design

Establishing trust between your business and your users

In order to be successful in the fast-paced world business, it is essential to have a high-quality website with a design that people can connect with and trust. Establishing trust between your business and your users can help to have your incoming traffic act and behave to your expectations. Trust doesn’t come easy, especially with digital scams, identify theft, and fraudulent schemes. Because of this, it is important that your website has a clear purpose and tells people what they need to know in an easy and presentable way.

A good example of high-quality websites that instill trust in their visitors is those from local Port Charlotte businesses created by Vontainment. Their websites use color, visuals, and negative space in a way that conveys in an easy to understand manner what their businesses are about and how they can help their customers.

Port Charlotte Business Cards

Your Business Card Should Start A Conversation

Your business card should open the door to start a conversation. Generic designs or templates from Vista Print are not ok. When you hand someone a card they should be wowed. You are saying this is me, this is us, who we are and what we do. It should be a statement that they won’t forget. Most people just leave them on a table to throw them away. You want a card that people will make sure to keep and not forget.

People often think they want to save money so they choose the cheapest option but that just leads to a total waste of money. The cheapest option means 99% of cards given out will meet the trash can.

When someone hands we a card that wows me, I take the time to place it in my wallet to keep it as I treasure the awesome business card. Something about the great quality and design makes me WANT to keep it.

The internet has grown and changed a lot in the past ten years: we’ve seen the reign of mobile, the introduction of AR, VR, AI, AMP, and many other acronyms. As exciting as all of this new technology has been, where we really see and feel these changes are in 2019 web design trends.

Designers have an … anxious … relationship with the idea of trends. On one hand, following the crowd feels wrong — after all, isn’t creativity doing anything but what everyone else is doing? To this line of thinking, the only value in knowing what’s trendy is knowing what you’re pushing against. You can’t simply do the opposite of a trend, of course. But knowing what the trends are making it easier to subtly comment on and/or critique them.
