Web design process

guide

So how does it all work? Well below we have given you a step by step guide to give you an idea of the web design process how it works and what is involved.


The planning stage

Here is where it all begins we will meet up have a coffee and a chat about what you are looking for and what you would like to get out of your website.
I will have my trusty note pad and pen so I can get the right information of what you want the website to do and how it looks. We will also discuss search engine optimisation (S.E.O) as this is a big factor in building sites.


The Design stage

Ok so I now have a good idea of your requirements for the website I will then take all the information and start putting some ideas together this period should take a day or two. The design will not be complete but we will have a better understanding of the finished product once I feel I have the right look for the website or project.

I start putting the ideas into Photoshop and produce a mock lay out. Once I have created the visuals I send them to you in JPEG format for your approval here is where you can say what you like don’t like and I can make all relevant changes.


The Development stage

Ok so we have the design for your new website sorted and you are happy with how the website looks, I will then start to build the frame work for the web site (this can take from 1 week to a few months) depending on how large the project in hand is. In this period I will register your company domain name and sort out hosting for your live site.

Throughout this process I will put your web site on a live test server so you will be able to see the progress of your web site.


The Launching stage

Ok so your site is now built and ready to go, once your site goes live I will include it into all the major search engines such as Google and Bing (this can take up to a few weeks for the search engines to pick the site up).

I then give your site a final once over making sure there are no mistakes such as spelling mistakes (I am only human) ensuring all your meta data and description tags are all correct and relevant. Then that’s it you are the owner of a beautiful fully functional website.
