It’s so important that the web design process goes without a hitch, so during this stage we’ll spend plenty of time with you to really understand your brand, goals and objectives. From your design preferences and desired functionality, to the navigation and analytics, everything will be considered. Not only will this ensure the highest quality web design possible, but it will keep your project on-time and on-budget.
During the prototyping stage, our web designers will begin to understand your style preferences in order to start refining the design that works for you. We do this by creating moodboards, prototypes and wireframes, which you can check over and approve before we get started. We can also begin testing to ensure your design decisions are data-led and will therefore work perfectly for your business’s long-term goals, however ambitious they may be.
Regardless of the device you’re using, we’ll utilise the latest technology to ensure you’re offering the best user experience possible. After all, your customers will need to find your site easy to use or they won’t stick around. Every page will be designed, with the functionality considered as standard — including responsive web design for mobile, tablet, desktop and all other devices.
We will develop your website on a staging environment, which means it can be fully tested and approved before it goes live. Regardless of the CMS chosen (whether this is WordPress or Magento, for example), we will set this up and provide on-going support and training so that your own teams can use it seamlessly moving forwards. We will also optimise all aspects of the site and its functions, from SEO systems and load speeds, to integrated platforms you might need to thrive (like Google Analytics).
Whether you need copy for web pages written or images and video added to your site, we will help you populate your site so that it’s completely ready to use. And don’t worry about broken links, as we will take care of all redirects to prevent you from gaining any dreaded 404s.
One of the most crucial stages of your website’s development, our web designers will test all aspects of the site, making sure there are no bugs and that all functionality works as it should. Once this is all approved and we’re confident everything is 100% perfect, you’re ready to go.
Perhaps the most exciting (and scary) part of the process, at this stage we’ll push your website live, syncing it with your domain. But don’t worry — we’ll make sure we have your old site backed up just in case anything goes wrong. This isn’t the part where we disappear either, as we’ll monitor the site and continually test all functions to make sure they work as they should.
And if you need anything from us during this final stage, we’re available to answer your questions and offer any training your teams might need to make full use of your brand spanking, shiny new site.
85% of adults think that a company’s website when viewed on a mobile device should be as good or better than its desktop website. In fact, mobile accounts for approximately half of web traffic worldwide. Therefore, everything we design works on any device. Whether customers use a desktop, tablet, or mobile phone, your website will work responsively, quickly and effectively on all platforms to ensure the best click through rate and engagement possible.
Whether you need unmanaged hosting or dedicated servers with custom firewall and backup plans, we can cater for each and every need. Just let us know and we’ll factor it in when it comes to the planning stage.
