We Are Unique;
Some Of The Differences Of Palm Web Design
Why Does a Degreed Professional Make a Difference?
Depending on who you ask, you will get different answers to
this important question. There are very few
people who actually have pursued and achieved a college
degree specifically in Web Design.
That is because the bulk of "Web Designer's" do not enter the field with any intent of specializing in Web Site Design. Rather, they gravitate into the Web field either from other
backgrounds (that make up a small part of what Web Design
really consists of), or they are looking to make a quick buck from those
who don't know the difference.
There are some who think that graphic design
is Web Design, and it is not. Web Site Design requires
a "bigger toolbox" than just one area of skill. Self teaching is not enough either, as the Web field consists of many areas of skill and talent and things that are needed to know in order to create quality, effectiveness, and functionality in a Web Site.
Those without a degree will tell you that it doesn't matter. They need to
defend their position because in their mind they are stuck with the limitations they have. They have no concept of what earning the degree does
for your knowledge, expertise,
and abilities, and no idea of what the vast areas of Web Site Design are, let alone how to work with it.
Those who are dedicated enough to earn the degree can tell you that it does make a significant difference in both the overall understanding
of concepts, technology, and modern methods, as well as the specific knowledge and skills in
the many things that professional Web Design consists of. It
is much more than just graphics and HTML.
A degreed professional knows what to do, as well as what not to do, in
a variety of areas of designing a Web Site. They know more
of what is possible to achieve, and the best ways to achieve the desired results.
They know about writing proper code (in several languages),
and how to de-bug code that doesn't work. They know how
things work, how to integrate, and how to employ
security, structure, and best practices. This saves you from
poor design, poor performance, and paying for wasted time. It can also provide you with ways of doing things that you or a self taught designer didn't even know existed.
Would you trust your vehicle to a mechanic who is not certified??
Would you go to a medical specialist who has no educational degree??
Would you use an accountant or lawyer with no education or degree??
A business Web Site should be a resource to you. It should be a Return On Investment, not a
waste of money. Look to a degreed professional in Web Site Design.

Our Balance of Knowledge, Expertise, and Technology
Web technology is vast, and it is constantly changing
and growing at a fast pace. Today there are many technologies that exist for use in the building and deploying of Web Sites.
Through our education and continued learning
we are on top of the current methods, standards, and the cutting edge Web technology.
But what counts is the proper application of it;
none of it matters without knowing when and where
to apply it – appropriately. At Palm Web Design we believe that technology isn't something for us to just follow,
it is something for us to use to accomplish a given effect. It is an option, or a tool,
that is chosen for a particular task or a specific solution.
It is not one particular thing that we always use or
push on our clients. Technology must be Understood – not
Ignored, and not Misused.
Our tool box is full of an array of powerful design and development tools. Yet we rely on our
skills and good judgment for our decision making in
the process of designing and developing effective Web solutions for you. This allows us to use our ingenuity and creativity
