We work with you to design a website that you can be proud of. Our design process follows six specific steps that you sign off once you are happy. The six easy to follow steps are as follows.
Project Definition, Site Structure, Visual Design, Site Development, Testing and Launch. Each Phase is explained below.
At this stage we work with you to gather as much information as possible to define the project. We consider your requirements for the website such as target audience, features you require, colours, fonts, number of pages etc. At this initial stage we will send you a specification document for you to complete. This will help us understand the style of site you are looking for. Once this is complete we will move on to the site structure phase.
This phase has four steps. Firstly we will work with you to determine the content needed for your website.
Next we will create a site diagram so that you will have an understanding of how your website pages will link together for easy navigation.
The next stage is to create a wireframe of your website. This is a very basic interpretation of the layout and content positions of your website.
The final stage is to present these designs for your approval. Once approved we will move onto the visual design.
This phase is were we create a mock-up of what your website will look like. Once complete we will send you the design for your feedback. If you require ammendments we carry these out and resend you the mock-up. This process is repeated until you are happy. Once you have agreed to the design we will ask you for a 50% depost before the next phase commences. The next phase is the development stage.
At this phase we start to build your website from a technical point of view adding all of the codding, functionality and any text and images that you require. The site is uploaded to our servers were it is refined ready for testing.
Once complete your website is subjected to rigerous testing to ensure functionality and visual apperance is all ok. At this stage you will be invited to test the site also to ensure it performs as you envisioned. Any revisions will be identified and rectified at this point before the site goes live. Once you are satisfied we will ask you for the remainder of the ballance and then launch your site.
At this phase we will either launch your site on to our servers or hand the site over to you to upload yourself if you are not using our servers. Testing is again carried out by yourself and us to ensure full functionality. If there are any technical problems we will deal with them to ensure your site is as you envisioned. We will continue to monitor and test your site for a period of 1 week to make sure it is stable.
