A Continuous Cycle of Improvement for your Website
Many years ago, I took a Human Relations in Business class from Jeri Mae Rowley. There were so many new ideas, one of which was “continuous cycle of improvement.” This concept is important in my work. Often a client will come to me with reams of changes they want on their website. It’s my job to take a step back and prioritize. I also suggest that my clients look at the tasks as one piece of a continuous cycle of improvement because consistent work over a period of time shows commitment to the site.
And, each change to a website often leads to new ideas and adjustments to previous plans. Now, I’m giving myself that same little lesson! I see countless little things, even just on my home page, that aren’t quite right. But, I need to be patient with my time, not forget that writing content is the most important thing, and make changes as time allows.
In these images, I’m trying to diminish the visual conflict between the banner slider and the group of images under it. When the color of both areas is very intense and busy, It’s causes mental overload in trying to take it all in. So, I desaturated the color on the bottom set on some, and went to totally black and white on others. It’s better, but not perfect yet.
In the meantime, going back to an earlier fix, I’m sitting on the changes to the text in the banner until 1) I decide I accomplished the goal of making them more noticeable, 2) I think of a better change. https://www.facebook.com/…/a.33242357344…/2024831844207881/…
