What is your take on Urgent projects
Good work takes due consideration, the right knowledge, the proper skill and sufficient enthusiasm.
Great work needs inspiration and lots of hard work! Great work requires sufficient time to digest and to think through. We at Eskaywoo aim to do great design work!
Accurate and diligent planning is essential for the success of a project. Rushed jobs are usually do not meet the expectations of either designer or the client. Worse if the audience do not benefit from the work. In short, good planning will reduce the needs for rush projects, which in the end are a waste of time.
Do you do multimedia websites of CD-ROMs?
That depends on the requirements. Usually only entertainment websites or such, would benefit from multimedia and rich content websites. Most other industries are better off with quick loading and standard adhering websites, with little dependance on newer web technologies.
Potential clients need quick information from your website. Information architecture is more important than fancy looking graphics that fly everywhere. If your client has to wait 20 seconds to find out how to call you, it it already 19 seconds too long.
Unless, of course, you're MTV.
