Make a Little Space

In visual art, negative space plays an essential role in guiding the viewer's attention to the subject.  In user interface design--or in this case, website design--white space is the designer's equivalent to negative space, and it is a key element of successful web design.  

Have you ever been to a website with so much going on that you have trouble focusing on any one feature on the page?  Take a look at the World's Worst Website Ever for an extreme example of the visual disaster that ensues when one ignores the importance of white space on a web page.  

According to this study by Fast Company, a business media brand with knack for innovation in technology and design, white space has been proven to increase reader comprehension by up to 20%.  Its power comes from the limits of human attention and memory.  That's not to say users are incapable of focusing on multiple items on a page at once, but too many items on a page will make it more difficult for users to complete the task set...

Garfinkel’s

Garfinkel’s (or Garf's, as it is locally known) has been a cornerstone in Lionshead for both tourists and locals alike since 1993. Their sunny deck provides the best aprés ski, sun catching and overall late spring and summer experience.  Over the years, some things have changed but the feeling of Garfinkel’s as a classic ski town sports bar/grill remains the same. Seasons pass by, memories are created, good times are had, and lifelong friends are made. 

In 2008, Garfinkel's came to us to design and build a website that would help them tell the Garfinkel's story.  Recently, they asked us to spice up their site with an update that would make the user experience more seamless.  Using a content-manageable, responsive design, we made their entire website mobile friendly (they will now survive Mobilegeddon).  Now, interested patrons can view their menus and special events calendar on any device or purchase a Garfinkel's Gift Card through ecommerce.

The walls inside of Garf's tell the...

Time for some R&R at Coral Beach Village in Utila, Honduras

We took a tropical twist for a few weeks, switched our Pandora station to island music, and mentally transported ourselves to the white beaches, sunshine, and crystal blue waters south of the border. First stop Coral Beach Village in Utila, Honduras. Coral Beach Village offers travelers everything from an unspoiled Caribbean setting to a 300+ acre resort where visitors can simply stay for a vacation, or look into property ownership and become a more full time resident. 

Coral Beach Village came to Avid Design looking for a website to showcase the lifestyle, community, amenities, and their green by design island properties! Coral Beach Village’s new content manageable website features email collection for future marketing efforts, responsive design for the optimal user experience across desktop resolutions, tablets and phones, plus the integration of iHotelier’s booking engine to seamlessly interface the online reservation process with the resort’s POS. 

If you’re looking for that...

Surfs up with SUP Corn Islands

Adventure-seeker and long-time Vail local Joey Saputo traded out the boards below his feet when he made the move from the Rockies to Big Corn Island. 

Looking to start a Stand Up Paddle board company in the warm tropical waters off the coast of Nicaragua, Avid Design was contracted to help introduce and market his new company, SUP Corn Islands. Avid Design created an array of marketing assets for SUP Corn Islands starting with a fun logo that speaks to the island lifestyle, print collateral to establish the company’s brand, and a new website complete with responsive design, email collection for future marketing efforts, and a Captain’s Log for trip dates and reservations. 

Book a trip down to see Joey and the crew and and try your hand at Stand Up Paddle boarding in his Caribbean tropical paradise. Not convinced yet? Then check out the photos and the good times to be had by visiting www.standuppaddlecornislands.com.  


Google Might be Sending You a Warning and Here’s Why!

Google Might be Sending You a Warning and Here’s Why! 

We all love Google, but you might be on their radar! Webmasters will be sent notifications from Google if their website isn’t mobile friendly (see image below for example that we just received for one of our clients). The reason this is important to webmasters, online businesses and ultimately you, is because your page rank in Google’s search may drop if your website isn’t mobile-friendly.

Take the hint from Google, because based on these warnings there’s a good chance that if your page isn’t mobile-friendly, they just might not share your site with the billions and billions of daily users. Google claims they have been experimenting with a mobile ranking algorithm since November, which eludes to mobile friendly / responsive design being a new key factor when it comes to your website’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Is your site mobile friendly yet? If not, reach out to us so we can discuss some options to help get you back into Google’s good graces! ...

bōl - World Class Dining and Bowling in Vail, Colorado

bōl, located in the heart of Vail Village, is know for their world class food and of course, their 10 boutique bowling lanes. Looking to do a facelift on the original website that we created 5 years ago, Avid and the client discussed a new direction for v2 of their online presence.

Deciding on a single and multiple page web design combo, custom layouts and programming were used to create a responsive web design that provides an optimal user experience across desktop screens both large and small, as well as phones and tablets. This round of development also included the integration of an email collection widget, as well as online reservation bookings through OpenTable.

From Novelty to Necessity: Responsive Design and Mobile-Friendly Websites

Have you ever tried to visit a website on your mobile device and found the site isn't mobile-friendly? No one likes that these days, especially Google. 

In fact, Google has decided to take matters into their own hands, or rather their own algorithms, by testing various solutions to this bothersome problem in order to enhance the mobile user experience. Google has not only been testing icons that will alert users to mobile-friendly sites when searching, but has also discussed their intent to have these sites stand out, and possibly rank better than other sites not utilizing responsive design. 

So what is Responsive Design you ask? Great question. In more simple terms, responsive design is a way to program one website to respond to the size of the screen it’s being viewed on. By programming a site in this manner, the website will automatically resize itself for the best user experience on various screen sizes such as large and small desktop monitors, as well as tablet and phone...
