Going into a web design project can sometimes seem daunting. Although each project is different, we keep the general web design process consistent. This is to ensure a consistent, top-quality outcome for all our clients.
We like to think our web design process is streamline and effective, as you’ll read below. We also believe it has a balance of input from you, the client, and us, the web designer. Essentially, so we work in tandem.
Step 1 – initial discussion #
First, it starts with a discussion to find out what you’re looking for and what you want from your website. This is so we can work out how best we can help you.
After the meeting or phone call you will be followed up with an accurate quote.
If the quote is amiable, we’ll put together a formal proposal which includes the project overview, features, timeline, costing etc.
Step 2 – design consultation & visual mockups #
Once the proposal has been agreed and signed, we arrange either a sit down meeting or video call. This is to discuss, in detail, how you want the website to look, feel and function.
Following that, we create PDF wireframes/prototypes based on our discussions and present them to you.
We then work on the visuals with your feedback & input, refining and amending them, until you’re happy with the direction of the design.
Step 3 – the build #
Now we have the visual guide, next, we begin the actual website build.
This is where we take the visuals and bring them to life usually in a staging environment, supplied by us.
Step 4 – User Acceptance Testing (UAT) #
Once the ‘first draft’ has been created, we provide you with a link to the staging site and our UAT software to go through and ‘Snag’ the website.
Or if you prefer, we can sit down or video call with you to go through the website.
We will continue to make any changes until you’re happy, providing they pertain to the brief.
Step 5 – publishing live #
As and when you are happy with the website, we perform some final checks, flight test it, and then publish live!
We can handle the migration and make the whole process as smooth as possible, whilst minimising downtime.
