Designing and building a website takes a lot of work. To be successful you need those with design skills, and those who can do web development. An ideal team has people with the following skillsets:
- Graphic Design
- Back End Coding – PHP (or similar)/SQL/SysAdmin
It’s no secret that some of the best websites have poorly regarded designs. Craigslist and Google’s home page come to mind. They are built with limited attention to visual appeal, and yet are among the most valuable properties on the web. In some cases functional utility trumps aesthetics.
But not all cases.
