The Walking “Website”: Bring Your Website Back From the Dead

[getsocial app=”sharing_bar”] As the season premiere of The Walking Dead draws closer (and we #MeetLucille) we at Twingenuity Graphics have come up with 6 tips to bring your ‘walking website’ back from the dead — and make your website as effective as Daryl with a crossbow. The ‘walkers’ (zombies) in The Walking Dead come after the survivors relentlessly, sometimes only a few stragglers at a time, other times in a herd. Attracted by sound or blood, they’ll hone in on their target and move toward it with a single-minded focus.The characters are often trapped and afraid, feeling as if there is no escape from being bitten by the ‘walkers’.

Find Free Photos You’ll Actually Want to Use

[getsocial app=”sharing_bar”] “Good design is good business.” – Thomas Watson, Jr. In design, photography is only growing in importance, after all pictures can say a thousand words. Imagery is one of the best methods to represent you and your brand in the best light and connect emotionally with your customers.

Go Responsive

[getsocial app=”sharing_bar”] Do you remember the last time you visited a website on your mobile device or tablet and had an — ahem — unmoving experience? (Pun intended.) Maybe the site wasn’t responsive. Or perhaps it was really difficult to find what you were looking for. Or, maybe it just loaded really slowly. Think about that.
