New Structure, New Look, New Pricing

COMING SOON! New design packages, modified pricing structures, a more automated process, and a new look are just around the corner for StyleBridge Web Design.

Here’s what you need to know in the short-term:

  • Non-profits, we have heard you! Soon we will offer an affordable web solution for you.
  • We are no longer supporting requests for print materials.
  • We will offer only WordPress design based on StudioPress’s Genesis Framework.
  • We will begin accepting payment online via credit card.
  • We will move away from customized web sites to offer customers lower cost design, self-managed content (optional) and reduced development time.

Hopefully these changes will allow us to support more customers which will in turn allow us to give more back to the community.

Research Shows First Impressions Form Quickly on the Web

Research conducted at the Missouri University of Science and Technology supports the idea that first impressions form quickly when users view a web site.  Using eye-tracking software and an infrared camera, researchers monitored eye movements as users scanned the web pages. This data was analyzed to determine how long users focused on specific sections of a page before moving on to another section. Then users were asked to rate the sites on aesthetics, visual appeal, and other design factors. According to the research, “… a user’s first impressions of a website can determine whether that user forms a favorable or unfavorable view of that organization.”  The entire results of this study can be found here.
