..ok, This has been something continually on my mind, but I haven’t voiced until now. It would seem that the web design/development market is getting more and more specific. For example, http://www.churchwebworks.com/site/prices.php is a web development company that has focused it’s entire product/design offering around building web sites for churches. Over time, I have also been exposed to similar companies for other industries/organization types’ as well (E.g. “We specialize in sites relating to…”Medical, Education, etc…) I don’t know how to feel about it, and while I understand the business value of offering an ‘expertise’ in a particular field, from a design standpoint I think I would find it boring and redundant to continually perform the same service over and over. Part of me however, would like to find that one remaining niche..like, ‘I specialize in building web sites for dogs’.
With this in mind, what other industries do you think could benifit from these types of ‘web products’? (Translation: give me a good idea so I can start one 😉 jk) But seriously, I am curious to know if there are any left, and if there are, perhaps moving in that direction is an option, after all…if it’s designed ‘right’, offering ‘Good Design’ is never really boring now is it?
…any, that’s my rant for the day. Hope you enjoy it.
