Creative Web Design Agency
Our web design services will help enhance you web presence online. Using the latest trends and tried and trusted methods we will create a site that is responsive (displays nicely on all device sizes) and is fasting loading with eye catching design that will allow you to not only catch your visitors attention but convert their visits into sales.
It is extremely important that your website resonates with your intended target and that it reaches that intended target.
Your site should display your message and what you do in under 5-7 seconds.
We have worked on and created 100s of websites from e-commerce and b2b and b2c websites to not for profit and government and educational websites.
Why You Need A Website
Business has changed over the last few years, especially since the pandemic and it is vital that if you are serious about your business that it has a website that reflects who you are and what you do. A website allows you to build an audience and communicate with them. It also can hook into your social media marketing. It is vital that your business has a full online digital strategy and a website is a key staple in this.
OUR 4 STEP PROCESS
It is very important for us to not only understand your business but the competition in your market. We learn about your business and your branding strategy and analyse your competition.
Most websites are built using generic bland templates that are not optimized and are bloated with stuff not relevant to your business. They have poor copy that is diffcult to read, doesn’t flow and has been written more with the intention to fool Google then being any use to a potential visitor to the site. We will work with you to create a unique experience for your customer or visitors that does not shoe horn in elements from a badly designed template but has individual elements created specifically for the purpose of a solving a problem for them.
STORYBOARDS & WIREFRAMES (Low Fidelity)
The first step in the timeline of deliverables is the storyboarding and wireframing phase. During this step in the project, we will begin by visually laying out the user flow within the website.
This is what is known as the UX (User Experience).
We will produce a wireframe in Adobe XD which will detail the process from landing on the website, to any other steps that might be involved in your using your website. For example, if it is an ecommerce site that might be creating an account and purchasing on the website and receiving tracking information. If it is a lead generation site that might be reading certain positioned sales text to get them to engage with a form that captures the lead. The wireframe is basically a blueprint of the website. This means it will be low fidelity so will not contain colours, or multiple fonts or images. It is a bare bone blueprint of how the user experience will function.
This is the most important stage of the whole project. It is basically like the architecture stage.
Wireframes are quite quick to produce, however, once front-end coding begins on your website if you later decide that there is a better UX than what is in the wireframes you signed off on, this will increase the hours needed to complete the contract so would result in the job being recosted. We would not only have to backtrack and code the new layouts from scratch but often when we are managing multiple projects at once there is no room in the development production timeline to even accommodate such changes quickly so it will cause delays to the finished product.
MOCKS (High Fidelity)
Once the wireframes have been signed off, we will move onto the design stage. This will be completed in Adobe XD. This stage will create how the final UI (User Interface) will be represented. It will include fonts, visuals such as images and colours.
We will create a mood board with the direction we think the site should go to provide some layout ideas. We will then complete 3 design representations. These will be discussed and modified in 3 rounds of revisions. Any additional rounds or modifications may incur additional costs. We will then produce a final mock. This mock will be an accurate representation of how the site will look in the final product through each of the main screens.
Once the UX/UI stage is completed this is where the heavy lifting begins!
We will begin to develop the site and will do so in what are called sprints. This basically meets intervals. We will set tasks and milestones for the sprint. Once the task/milestones assigned to that sprint are completed, we will arrange for you to review and then discuss if needed.
Any timelines set for tasks will be affected if you are not able to review or discuss the completed sprints in timely fashion. This will cause delays and the timelines will have to be adjusted accordingly.
Any necessary revisions or tweaks to the build will be implemented quickly, to close out that portion of the website and move on to the next sprint. When all the sprints have been signed off, we will move into the final stage, testing and launch.
TEST & LAUNCH
During each sprint we will conduct tests obviously, but it is always good practice to go over the final product and ensure it is all cohesive. We will test the performance, quality, reliability, security, and usability and look for any bugs or issues. We will try to replicate every possible user experience that someone might undertake using the system. We will look for anything that does not make sense in the user flow and adjust it. This includes usability on mobile devices and tablets.
Once this has been conducted it will be worthwhile to send the site URL to any staff members (if you have any) to effectively use them as beta testers. This is helpful as it will put the website in the hands of someone not familiar with the website build so they are more likely to find errors or issues.
Once the site has been thoroughly tested it is time to upload it to the final hosting solution and go live.
