Interface DesignGraphic user interfaces were designed to give people control over their personal computers. Users now expect a level of design sophistication from all graphic interfaces, including Web pages. The goal of Marc Dorsett Designs is to provide for the needs of all your potential users, adapting Web technology to their expectations and never requiring readers to conform to an interface that places unnecessary obstacles in their paths.
This is where our research on the needs and demographics of your target audience is crucial. It's impossible to design for an unknown person whose needs you don't understand. We create sample scenarios with different types of users seeking information from your site.
Would an experienced user seeking a specific piece of information be helped or hindered by your home page design? Would a casual reader be intimidated by a complex menu scheme? Testing your designs and getting feedback from a variety of users is the best way to see whether our design ideas are giving them what they want from your site.
Flash Animation and IntegrationWebsites and online advertising can all benefit from the proper use of Adobe Flash technology. As the internet evolves, people are expecting more interactive and visually engaging experience. Adobe Flash is still the best tool in the market for producing these types of media rich presentations and websites.
Motion, video, and music can lend emotion and interest to a presentation or website that standard html cannot. If it is appropriate for your company and market, we can produce rich interactive experiences that will differentiate you from the competition and communicate in exciting new ways.
Print CommunicationsHow you represent your Company to the marketplace affects the type and amount of business you will attract. Marc Dorsett Designs can help you shape and define the most impressive profile for your business through print advertising and related services.

UsabilityUsability rules the web. If a client can't navigate your website, then he or she will not use your site to find your services or products. While everyone wants to design cool web sites, no one wants to think simple and consider whether the design actually accomplishes its goal, which is usually to sell, teach, inform or entertain.
Your website needs to anticipate the user's expectations and choose appropriate design elements that make it easy to find and use information. Designing the perfect home page, effective navigation, organization and structure for a web site is a challenging process.

Website Content ManagementWhat's the most common thing people do on your website? They read. You can save time for your customers and make sales by writing and laying out content that wins on the Web.
As you know, simplicity is the key to designing a quality website. After all, visitors go to your site to find information—and they're most happy when they find what they want quickly.
Website design should focus on how content is created and presented to your visitors. How do readers navigate your classification system? How do they search for a particular document? How easy is it for them to move around your site?
These fundamental questions are designed for simple, straightforward answers . Marc Dorsett Designs has the resources to provide a common platform for addressing your multiple web answers, expand the role of the web in your organization, transform your use of the web from an exclusive IT function to an organization-wide tool, and minimize the time and investment generally associated with web projects.

Marc Dorsett Designs partners with elite, professional programmers - building highly compatible, ColdFusion©-driven websites, custom designed specifically for our clients, providing exactly what you've asked for plus the professional touches you may not know you need. Your website can be designed for easy administration by non-technical staff where possible for increased long-term value and decreased maintenance costs.
In most database websites, a visitor makes requests from the web page to request data from the database and then the programming decides how to display it within the context of the page. This is an advanced web development technique utilized by all major web sites and employed more and more by competant developers for their small business clients.
The primary benefit is the separation of the content of the site, which should be maintained by you, from the technical & design elements which should be maintained by your web professional. The database enables us to create administration consoles that you can use to add information into the database and update your website when you wish, as often as you wish!
