Our Process

We start the process with a requirements gathering stage which is handled through several meetings between yourselves and us to discuss exactly what you are looking for from your website. We then put a specification together which outlines exactly what we are going to deliver and how we will deliver it. We do this so everyone is on the same page as to what is being delivered for the initial launch.

The Research Phase

We want to make sure that your website meets its business objectives and has a commercial impact. Therefore, every website design project starts with a research phase where our aim is to build a thorough understanding of your business; your brand, your product or service, and find out exactly you’re looking to achieve. We also analyse your target market and evaluate the competitive landscape. This information is used to direct our design and development decisions going forward.

The Design Phase

Our designers will begin by completing a set of wireframes for bespoke pages to agree on a page structure, UI and functionality. These can be used to map out user flows. Then, we will start the exciting part: conceptual design. Adopting a mobile-first approach to design, and by utilising our findings from the research phase, we will produce initial concepts. We will seek to collaborate with you from a very early stage. This ensures that the design phase is used efficiently and allows us to iterate and develop the designs with your involvement.

Development

Once the designs are completed and signed off by you, your website will be built in HTML and CSS. At this point, you will get a feel for how your website responds on various devices. Following this, our back-end developers will connect your website with your chosen Content Management System, develop any custom functionality, and integrate your website with new or pre-existing systems, if required.

Testing & Launch

All websites undergo rigorous testing at different stages of the process including browser, QA and functional testing to help us spot and fix any issues. Your website will also be deployed to a UAT environment for you to test. There will be a phase for you to upload your content to the CMS so that you’re all set and ready for the big launch.
