Process

Success starts with a great strategy!

Project management is key to the success of a new or improved website. There are 6 steps that we follow in our web design and development process. Find out more below:

1. EXPLORE

First of all we gather information to understand your goals and objectives for the new website. We find out about your main competitors and target audience, your brand messages and calls to action. This helps us to develop a project brief.

2. PLAN

Here we define the scope of the project and the content hierarchy. Specific deliverables and time frames are agreed at this stage so that you have a clear set of expectations for the website. A sitemap is created to clearly display all web pages and structured navigation.

3. DESIGN

At this stage, we create a graphical view of the new website in Photoshop. The design is determined by the brand and incorporates the website hierarchy, required functionality and calls to action.

4. BUILD

Once the design has been approved, we begin to build your website! Here we use programming methods to implement all of your website functionality. This could include a content management system (CMS) such as WordPress, photo and video galleries, sliders, blog, shopping cart and web forms. Responsive styling is also implemented at this stage.

5. TEST

The fifth stage is to thoroughly test your website before it is launched. The website is placed on a production server so that you can view and test the new website functionality yourself. We also test the site on multiple browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and multiple devices (laptops, tablets and mobile).

6. LAUNCH

Once we are sure that everything is working as it should and looks great on all screen sizes, it’s time to plan and execute the site launch! Once your website is launched, it is “live” – allowing the World to experience and enjoy your new website. It is important to remember that the work does not stop here though. A website will need to be maintained on a regular basis – whether that be adding new content or keeping it up-to-date with the latest security measures. We can help maintain the website for you or you can do this yourself, the choice is yours!
