Couldn’t have said it better than this video.
Pulling together a bunch of designers or companies to pitch for a web design project may seem like a wise idea but may actually work against you.
What is MockVault?
MockVault lets you manage your designs and versions with ease at the backend and present them professionally to your clients at the frontend.
To get a design approved, it’s not all about the design, it’s how you sell it. When sending a design to your client over the web, different format yields different results. If you’ve been sending mockups in PDF, Powerpoint or even in multiple JPEGs, your designs may not look like how it should be when it’s coded. This results in unnecessary requests for changes, wasting you time.
For over 13 years, we’ve tried and tested several ways of presenting our designs to clients. Only one format deemed the most effective in terms of getting it approved. It’s by placing annotations over the mockups and displaying it like the actual website.
The reason why annotations raises approval rates is because it’s easy for them to understand what they’re looking at. Guiding your clients through is critical if you want them to see the design the way you see it.
It is difficult to guide your client through your design over the web. With MockVault, it’s easy.

Less than 8% of the people interviewed at Times Square New York know what a browser is.
There’s no surprise that more people around the world, not just Times Square alone, doesn’t know what a browser is, don’t use the internet as much as we would like to think, are less savvy and would get lost if the site is designed to be more complicated than they would have liked.
It’s a good place to start thinking about these users who are going to use the next website you design. Watch the following video and be surprised:

Recently I have been thinking alot about where Flash is heading in the near and long term and how we as developers have to re-think the way we use Flash to build websites.
I am guilty of spending too much time on designing and developing websites that I hardly spend much time on making them “search engine optimised”. Search engine is so powerful these days, people are reliant on it for almost all information they are trying to find. They don’t call anymore, they don’t ask, they search – and it is probably the fastest way into getting instant information.
Almost all of my websites are designed entirely in flash, they might be friendly to the eyes, but not exactly very friendly to search engines. This post a very serious problem especially when you’re relying on a website for your business. Clients wants sites to be in HTML and minimal flash so that it is searchable via search engines. Fair enough, moreover HTML can be deployed together with AJAX to minimise refreshes and put some life into the HTML pages by employing slight animation, but if you really love Flash like I do, you might want to SEO your full flash sites with – SWF Object
