The form is the structure, the architect of something whereas a function is the product of a structure which plays any specific role. 

A sense of balance is important in any graphics because if the image is not balanced, viewers will not understand where to look at. In such situation you will not be able to communicate the message that you want to convey. 

The use of visual elements is a key component in creating visually appealing websites, outstanding user experiences, and leads to engaged users and site conversion.

Keywords are crucial for every business website because they bring web traffic to your business for FREE. 

Applications (or apps) help developers negate the need for specifics. Apps facilitate a businesses in influencing their online presence, which in turn creates good relations with the customers.

TESTIMONIALS

Cas really helped me with my website! I was completely lost, and she helped me so much with everything. She listened to all of my suggestions, and was very open to helping me when I didn’t know what to do, and she kept true to my vision and what would work for me. She even helped me with graphics, which I have no skill in, and was so kind and helpful. I felt very safe in her hands, and would gladly hire her again!

The Query Connection forum is "stunning in terms of its structure and activity."

Wix Forum Research Manager & Wix Project Manager

The brand development and set-up Cas helped me with for my business was imaginative and bang-on for what I was looking for. Not only was she expedient, efficient, and helpful, but she is also very talented with a good eye for design.
