We take a considered and structured approach to designing our websites. We engage with you to understand your organisation and your users and then use this to create a simple, beautiful, well structured experience. A combination of visual creativity and technical expertise ensure the websites we develop have a proven track record of return on investment. We believe that web design is a broad term that encompasses a great deal more than whether a website looks good or not. Website design includes the structure of the sitemap, ensuring that all pages are easy to find through a logical structure. The layout of each page – ensuring that key information is presented clearly and that the page isn’t overcrowded – is as important as the final web design aspects of colours and fonts.
In our initial Kickstart meeting we get to know you, your needs and most importantly gain an understanding of your users. We use this information to plan the project from your users' point of view including working with you to create wireframe sketches. Only by doing this can we create a truly effective online experience.
During this period the designers will work with the information from the Kickstart and produce initial designs for your website. Initially we will produce wireframe mockups so you can sign off the structure of the pages before we add all the detail. Once this is signed off we move onto full Photoshop mockups.
'The Chop' may sound scary, but this is essentially the stage where we turn the visual mock-ups into clickable web-pages known as HTML and CSS development. HTML is the building blocks of the web and this is where the technical team begin to transform your and the designer’s vision into a living, breathing website.
This is a where we put all the areas of the site together that require access to live data such as eCommerce catalogues, data driven websites with content management systems or programming logic in bespoke website developments.
We will carry out full testing on your website followed by a design review from your assigned designer to ensure it looks perfect before it goes live. We will also work through a comprehensive checklist of points to make sure everything is as it should be before the site goes live.
Once everyone is happy with the site following final testing we move onto the launch phase of the site. Here we carry out our final checks and following written confirmation and final payment we push that big red button.
