I hired the services of Aspire Designs sometime in May 2012 for the design of my banner and logo for Quik Snack Pte Ltd. Their response is fast and accommodating. I had to redesign the logo twice and shift items in the banner around. Aspire Designs did it in less than a week to my satisfaction. On request they also provided me the source files so that i can pass to my printing department for high quality prints. Thanks for being able to meet my demanding requirements in such a short time frame.

Heavy files such as large images take a long time to load, and thus, decreases the performance of the website. A conscious effort should be made to eliminate such files and keep the web components under 25KB. However, if large web components are essential for the success of the website, a web designer should do whatever is possible to optimize the file or component as per requirement.
JPEG, JPG, GIF, and PNG are some of the popular file formats for images. Optimizing the images also involves the process of saving them in proper format for better color range and gradients. PNG is one of the best image formats as it lowers the overall file size.
Another way of reducing HTTP requests is to merge all the images of the website into one single file using CSS Sprites. CSS Sprites makes it possible to effectively combine all the small images used into one big image file enabling quick webpage loading and ultimately, superior web performance.
