Not 1, But 2 Great Awards
Big Gorilla Design’s been busy. Like everyone, we’re getting back into the groove of things in a post-pandemic world. We’re proud to announce not one, but two recent awards we’ve received.
Branding goes well beyond your company’s logo. It represents your mission and how you appear and interact across all internal & external channels, from your website to social media to even how your HR department interacts with your employees.
We at Big Gorilla Design are both proud and honored to announce that we’ve been named one of the Top 20 Marketing Agencies in Austin. As part of this honor, our team has received an UpCity Excellence Award through UpCity’s annual City Excellence Awards.
Founded in 2010, Big Gorilla Design is a full service web design, marketing and branding agency. The UpCity City Excellence Awards are presented to an area’s top agencies that repeatedly go above and beyond in terms of their work and customer service; the award itself encompasses a broad variety of categories, including web design, graphic design, marketing, branding, SEO, video and social media.
They say, “variety is the spice of life,” but when it comes to choosing a social media platform to promote your company, variety can be a bit confusing. Today, thanks to a plethora of social media platforms to choose from, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, LinkedIn, etc., you can increase your reach and help more people learn about your product or services in a much faster and more cost-effective way. But is every platform going to bring you the same results, and if not, how do you chose the right social media platform(s) to promote your business?
We’ve all heard the popular phrase, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” But did you know that when it comes to your website design, you actually only get 50 milliseconds to make a first impression? This statistic comes from the researchers of a study published in the journal, Behaviour & Information Technology. Three studies were conducted to determine just how quickly someone forms an opinion about a website’s visual appeal. The result? Just 50 milliseconds (or 0.05 seconds).
What makes people stay? Initially it’s strong, eye-catching web design. For every search query, there are numerous search results that fit the needs of the user. If a user clicks on your website and isn’t immediately hooked, they’ll just move on to the next one. In this post we highlight the top website design trends for 2019, so you can make the most out of the 0.05 seconds you have to make users want to stay a while.
