What’s our web design process?
We’ve designed and built a few websites in our time, and one of the key lessons we’ve learned along the way is that every project needs a clear, well defined process that maintains flexibility to adapt to each unique project.
So that’s what we’ve developed.
01. Consultation & onboarding
It all starts with a chat – or a “consultation” if you want to be fancy about it.
This involves us chatting on the phone or over a coffee about your project, objectives, expectations and – the part some people find awkward – your budget.
Once we’re on the same page, we’ll build out a project scope that outlines all of the requirements, deliverables and timelines for your new website.
The onboarding phase involves you giving us access to your website, hosting, Google Analytics and other accounts we’ll need to utilise to create your new site.
02. Site structure & content review
All high performing websites need to have a well designed and laid out site structure – it’s the foundation of your website, and it plays a big part in your site’s SEO.
In this step we review your site structure and hierarchy to make sure we’re starting your project in the best position possible.
Websites are best built around the content that they’re housing – not the other way around. We’ll review your website content (copy, calls to action, images, video etc,) to ensure it’s up to the job.
Quality content is fundamental to your website’s performance in the search engines (ie getting found in Google), so it’s vital to make sure your website content is kicking goals before we design your new site.
If your website content needs to be further developed, we can help with that.
03. Wireframes & design prototypes
We dive deep into your target audence to understand what makes them tick, to ensure we can design your site for conversions. We’ll also review your top competitors to see what’s working, and how we can do it better for you.
Wireframes are basically line drawings on a piece of paper. This gives you and us a basic skeleton for how your new site will be laid out on the page.
Here’s where your website starts coming to life. We build out grey-scale page prototypes on a development server that demonstrate how your site will look and work. You’ll be able to view these in a web browser to get a feel for how your site will come together in ‘rea life’.
04. Design & build
This is where shit starts to get fun.
We’ll start adding colour, typography, images and much more really bring your new site to life.
You’ll be amazed to see a dull and boring greyscale web page transformed into a vibrant, eye catching and visually pleasing web browsing experience!
05. Test & launch
Once you’ve signed off on the design, we’ll perform a series of rigorous tests to ensure there’s no glitches or bugs, and that your new website is functioning perfectly.
From there, we’ll take care of the full launch to push your new site to all of your new customers.
It’s important to maintain your website to ensure it’s up to date with the latest security and software. Things change very quickly on the wolrd wide web, so it’s important to make sure your website stays healthy.
We provide website maintenance plans to take the hassle of maintaining your website on a weekly or monthly basis off your hands.
Why work with us?
We love building beautiful, functional websites that help grow businesses online – and because we’re passionate about it, we do a great job every time.
Every site we design and build is unique to each client, and designed with your customer in mind.
