Responsive website stands as a face of the organization and are created to make the business profitable, as reaffirmed by Kanu Iroegbu,  a certified digital marketing consultant.

He said that custom made websites has been inspired by many owners compared to standard templates. The reasons are canny!,“ Iroegbu emphasised.

He noted that web design showcases the “personality” of a brand and portrays the image of the company or an individuality.

“ Somehow it can be regarded as your own sense of style. When designing though, you cannot only think about what you want all the time but also consider the impact of the outcome on your intended audiences – no matter what device they choose to use“.

Iroegbu however, identified top five techniques for a profitable website to include,

1. “Less is more.”
There are web pages that are too heavy with graphics thus affecting the loading speed and the performance of the site, especially if bandwidth is just limited.
The trend now is to put these elements aside and replace them more useful and informational objects such as typography. Instead of placing too many pictures, web designers have also recognized that it’s better to publish educational content where readers can put more focus on.
This new paradigm of simplicity and minimalism with clear layouts and interfaces caters to most people as the known intention of landing to a site is the content overall.

2. HTML5 Conversion
HTML is one of the widely accepted languages in the world of web design. Recently, it has upgraded to another level for animation and multimedia.
Especially useful for sites that are made for web-based games and online advertisements, HTML5 conversion is embraced by many web designers and developers to provide interactive content to users.

3. Use of Vivid Colors
Regardless of demographics, people would always respond to sites that have vivid colors. They are appealing to both old and younger generations, as nobody wants to read green text on a red background or orange text on a neon yellow background.
To achieve a cohesive appearance, work with vivid colors that do not hurt your users’ eyes. If in doubt, use the color wheel or adapt to a safe color palette.

4. User-centered Design
Web design trends come and go year after year, but one thing remains the same. It is that the design should be centered on the user’s point of view.
The web design should only enhance their experience in navigating through and browsing the pages. Interaction and engagement with the readers are very important keys to make them stay. It’s recommended to have well-patterned designs for consistency and familiarity.

5. Oversized Typography
Just like the first point, limiting decorations in a site will make the more important elements such as the text content and call for action items stand out.
You can use oversized typography to emphasize the design and increase its impact on getting attention. As a replacement for images, this type of graphical element will make wonders in simple ways.
It’s okay to use trendy techniques to beautify your web design. But incorporating evergreen methods is one of the determining factors in reinforcing your company’s image, providing information and highlighting only the important features.
There are many online tutorials and references available for you to be able to blend in artistic works into your website design almost perfectly.
A custom made website brings a sense of trustworthiness to the audience. Every user will realize that the website owner has taken many efforts in crafting the designs and layouts. Dallas web Design Company says that ‘Right combinations of layout, content, title and the tone of the website, will surely become a hit’. Before building a website – every owner should perform a website planning.
Most important finding would be, Target Audience, Budget and Hiring a Web design company
The first two becomes internal issues whereas the last (Hiring a web design company) becomes external.
Today, web designing company has mushroomed up in every nook and corner of the world. Analyzing whom to approach will be the million dollar question.
Every web design company will have their unique feature in communicating an exclusive USP – which is nothing but ‘Ultimate customer satisfaction with an Engineering Excellence’.
A set temple will always be set. If we do not need a column or row – It is bound to have them as they are totally set and unchangeable. Whereas a custom made website can be altered in any way possible. It can be created according to the requirement of the product or service of the company. Various flash and videos, separate link for pictures, scroll bars wherever applicable, a neat footer and header, color combinations, size of the layout, mobile navigation and lots more can be structured in a tailor made websites.
Custom made website has made life simpler for users especially when it comes to online shopping websites. The backend work that goes into such websites is most challenging. Web desin professionals take care of every step that help a website appeal to customers.

FG Launches Central Database for Stolen Asset Tracing

Mr Abubakar Malami, AGF

Mr Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF) and minister of Justice, at the launch in Abuja, said the database will ensure uniformity of process, access and information feeding to deepen transparency and accountability in the management of recovered assets.

To ensure compliance, he said his office is developing legislation for the full implementation and operation of the CCJIS.

“We will work together to establish and re-enact transparency and accountability in governance and management of our resources which we have committed to do by way of strengthening International Cooperation of our membership of Open Government Partnership,” he said.

In his speech, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the House of Representatives, represented by Mrs Ugonna Ozurigbo, chairman, House Committee on Justice, said the regulation on Asset Tracing, Recovery and proper management of proceeds of crime was signed on October 24, 2019, and took effect from November 1, 2019, replaced the proceeds of Crime Regulation of 2012.

The new regulation titled Asset Tracing, Recovery and Management Regulations 2019 empowers the AGF to take charge of the custody and management of all final forfeited assets, approval and appointment of asset managers and operating and maintaining a database for the records of all recovered assets within and outside Nigeria.

He said, the AGF’s office, under the new regulation, is also required to coordinate inter-agency investigations into recovery matters within and outside Nigeria from all law enforcement agencies whose law empowers them to undertake recoveries and maintaining a depository for all forfeiture orders issued by the Nigeria courts and courts outside Nigeria.

Asset Tracing, Recovery and Management, according to the Speaker, is a core value of good governance and its effective management will serve as a deterrent to would-be fraudulent minded individuals who may find themselves in public offices.

According to him, states resources must not be allowed to be stolen but if that happened by fraudulent individuals, efforts must be taken to trace the proceed, recover same and manage for the interest of the generality of the people.

“When the proceeds of crime are traced and recovered but again looted by government officials, I dare to say such act amounts to the crime of tertiary capacity and must be avoided.

“Assets not accounted for are assets lost; loss of assets undervalues the economic potential of a country and will negatively impact on the net worth of a country. Accordingly, Asset Tracing Recovery and Management is a panacea to rekindling of the value system of a nation,” the Speaker noted.
