Black Media Group Director Kenneth Wan Interviewed by Bulletin Magainze - May 2016
Customizing Web Design for Enterprises
- Web design is not just “eye candy” but an integral part of a company's website combining practical usage and good design, reports the chamber's staff writer Ray Lai -
The internet has become an essential part of our life while computers and smartphones are indispensable daily tools. As a result, many companies have realized that e-commerce and online websites are important for doing business. This has given rise to a growing demand for web design.
This is what led Kenneth Wan, Business Development Director of Black Media Group, to quit a marketing job seven years ago and start his own business.
“When I was working in a marketing company, I found out about the demand for web design,” said Kenneth. “Black Media was founded with the intention of offering enterprises and businesses graphic design services and a customized range of web development.”
“Nowadays, many people prefer to visit a company's website to research the company's products and services before they visit a store,” he said. “The website represents the company. New customers may not visit your company but they must visit your website to know about your services. If your website has a stylish design, it will attract their attention.”
Some companies have already recognised that a stylish website with attractive effects is beneficial for their business. “A few years ago, some companies started to feature more attractive designs and special effects on their websites. Even some corporations and non-governmental organisations were willing to try new designs,” he said.
Kenneth believes there is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to designing websites. Black Media Group develops unique solutions for each client instead of just using a design template. “We are not an assembly line and our designs are not crudely made.”he said. “We are proud to stand tall among other design companies in Hong Kong for our stylish designs and creative originality.”
“We ensure the design is suitable for the client's unique vision, brand values and core messages. Were search companies' backgrounds, their local competitors and their counterparts in foreign countries before starting projects.” He said. “From print media to web development and complete corporate branding, we are committed to providing clients with a range of sophisticated graphic design services, custom designed to fit each customer's unique business ambitions and goals.”
Kenneth said on every project they design, thorough discussions are held between his team and clients to ensure quality and to prevent any unsatisfactory outcomes. “Communicating with clients is important. We take time to listen to our clients, and then incorporate their own unique brand vision, business goals and ambition into the overall design. We try to approach every project without any preconception about how the objects should be designed,” he explained. Unlike other outsourcing web design firms, all of their projects are produced in-house with a team. Also, all projects are then followed up by holding meetings with clients and not only email communication.
Black Media Group also provides other services such as their IR Solution, which is fully capable of fulfilling the new Hong Kong Exchange (HKEx) announcement posting compliance which requires companies to post information on their own corporate websites within one hour after being submitted to the HKEx website. The solution consists of a Content Management System (CMS), File Submission System (FSS), and a 24-hour Content team to ensure all the official and financial documents and files of clients are posted onto corporate websites within the required time. The company also offers clients a dedicated posting hotline and email address to ensure that announcements or other related documents could be uploaded within 30 minutes onto the client's corporate website. “This service enables firms to avoid delayed posting, which would risk punishment from HKEx'he said.
The biggest challenge is combining aesthetics with the client's needs since different companies have different backgrounds and values, says Kenneth. However, he is confident in dealing with this. “We have a professional team who have high technical skills and are able to overcome even the most difficult technical challenges.”
Building customer trust and confidence is crucial for success in any business so it is important to show off the quality of your services to clients. “We treat every project like a competition to fight for, which encourages staff to strive as much as possible to win. Also, we enter competitions regularly to try to win awards so that we can gain recognition,” he said.
