A custom web design provides a unique identity to a business, compared to shared templates and also allows the business freedom to create additional features that can best serve their clients. But that is not all. A custom web design blends the culture and business processes into one place giving your clients a whole understanding of your business and the value you provide. Instead of settling for a common template, here are the main reasons why every business should consider a custom web design for its online reputation:

This allows the business to create a simple and planned internet presence for their users.


Businesses can deeply integrate their brand concept into a custom web design including having their own colors, graphics and layout. A custom web design more easily reflects the total image of a brand and the brands culture.

Upon graduation, with little money and a ton of risk, Danny took his project and put his degree into action by starting his own website design business. With little direction, he began to learn the ins and outs of running a website development and marketing agency through trial and error. To start, Dsquared Media resided in a tiny 210 square foot office space located in Delray Beach, Florida that was barely room enough for employees to work. As time progressed, so did Danny’s knowledge on maintaining and running a successful business based on progressive marketing strategies. Currently, Dsquared Media employs 12 media professionals and is located in a space over 7 times larger than the tiny office in Delray. Danny attributes his success to a keen eye for intelligent design and an inspiration to live according to his passions.
