Graphic and Web Design Is Still the Bread & Butter

Gorbs Corp. has been, and always will be, primarily a design and development company delivering great design, functional navigation, artistic Flash and expert template manipulation - something that is becoming more and more popular. However, it's easy to forget the hundreds of banners done for clients.

Banners are still a VERY viable and lucrative part of the business. Although your basic static banner may be past its prime, more and more clients are coming to Gorbs for animated gif and Flash banners. I'm not sure if you can call it a resurgence, but it's definitely an easy way to spend the day and make some cash when the website business is slow! I probably knock out a banner every 15-20 minutes (an hour or two for Flash but I charge for those hours!) and generally work a few hours and take the rest of the day off (by off I mean work on the other 200 projects on the slate!) The same rules apply as in the old days though. Make sure you follow the specs of the target placement VERY carefully - especially things like ClickTags. Keep it small and make it "pop." Oh, and make sure you listen to the client - that's rule 1. 

I mentioned template manipulation being popular. I'll touch on that in another post!
