There seems to be a confusion whether a good website is that with an exquisite visual design, with a great purpose, or the one with an incredible content. This is perhaps the reason why it is recommended for a web designer to have a good open communication with the other people behind the website’s creation. For instance, before deciding on a template and layout for the site, a web designer must at least have an idea as to what kind of contents are to be displayed. Of course, the purpose of the site also affects the content.
