Our Working Process
Web designers often think about the web design process with a focus on technical matters such as wireframes, code, and content management. But great design isn’t about how you integrate the social media buttons or even slick visuals. Great design is actually about having a website creation process that aligns with an overarching strategy.
Once we understand how the client wants us to approach their website project and share their ideas, the next step is to set realistic goals, objectives, and dates in which tasks should be completed by. This step is normally handled within the initial client meeting, as that way the client understands the timeline in which the full project will be finished, and can have their input on when certain tasks should be finished by. The most important part of this step is creating an initial sitemap, so that the size and organization of the website is agreed upon from the beginning.
The visual design process determines the look and feel of the site, and each mockup that is created should reflect the brand identity discussed in the initial client meeting. This particular step will require many conversations with the client, as they will want certain parts of the design fine tuned. The content should be included within the designs to give the client a full picture of how it will look live on their site. Depending on the project we will then provide the client with wireframes or mockups to share our vision and overall layout, look, and feel of their new website.
Once the designs have been approved, the technical work can begin on creating the actual website. This involves a lot of coding, testing, and troubleshooting. A demo site should be implemented so the client can get a feel for how the live site will feel, be able to make recommendations based off of what they do and don’t like, and can also help to catch any potential errors our team may have missed. We also perform various cross browser and device compatibility tests to ensure the new site will perform seamlessly on all devices and latest browsers.
After the technical aspects of the website have been completed, it’s time to launch the website and go live. Final testing phases should be completed as a last line of defense against any small errors, but the site should be ready to be made public. We also implement our comprehensive SEO checklist on all websites that go live to ensure we are adhering to the latest best practices set forth by search engines and that our site is ready to get crawled and optimized.
