I specialise in web/ui design, company design, and WordPress websites development. I’ve been working in this field for more than ten years and can confidently say — yes, I know how it feels like, looks like and how it works.
Web design encompasses some different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites such as information architecture, website structure, user interface, navigation ergonomics, website layout, colours, contrasts, fonts and imagery (photography) as well as icons design. User understanding of the content of a website often depends on user understanding of how it works. UI design is related to layout, clear instructions and labelling on a web page, so a user perceives the usefulness of the website and more likely to continue using it.
WordPress is the same platform used by CNN, the Rolling Stones and just about every major site on the internet. It started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets and themes, it’s limited only by your imagination. The site you are on right now has also been built with WordPress.
