1. Requirements Gathering
This is about making sure we understand exactly what it is your
company wants from its website, and it works best if we do it
face-to-face. On the back of these meetings our team will put
together a proposal. This serves as both the basis of the agreement
between the two companies and the blueprint for the future of the
2. Visual Concept
Once the proposal has been agreed, the next step is to establish
the look and feel of the site. The designer will use the
information already gathered to produce clean and eye-catching
designs that express the ethos of your company in clear visual
language. You will be offered more than one variant, and choose the
one you like best.
3. Site Architecture
This is about thinking through the structure of the site from
the user's point of view to produce a definitive site map. The aim
should be to minimise the number of clicks before any given user
arrives at what they are looking for.
Once the visual concept and site architecture are in place we
can begin producing the graphical templates. These designs are then
turned into an HTML wire-frame. That's a site you can click around,
but which doesn't do anything more than that.
The last step in the process is the development of the
functioning website. It is at this point that the more complex
programming is done. The work will be carried out on one of our
development servers and successive iterations will be available for
you to test and review.
