To streamline the web development process, we break the project down into several manageable stages:
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.
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.
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.
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.
