Any successful website requires successful web design process

Successful Internet business does not happen by accident. In fact, there are many steps that must come together for an Internet business to be successful.

We are dedicated to providing website solutions which include everything you need to have a totally successful Internet business. We are with you from idea to success. If you are just starting out or if you have an existing website which is not as successful as you would like, the process is the same we will create a website solution that will bring visitors to your website who will become customers and repeat visitors. Your website will not only be user friendly, but search engine friendly. The process we use consists of the following steps:

  • Gathering Company & Competitive Information
  • Designing Mock-up
  • Visual Design
  • Data modeling
  • Site Development
  • Testing and Launch

Gathering Company and Competitive Information

 

Every project needs to start off with some research. We put together a general profile of the client, what products or services they offer, their location, target market, and other objectives they wish to accomplish. From that we look over some local, regional, and national competitors to see how open the online market is. This phase helps us get a better understanding of the project, learning about the company, understanding their brand and also viewing their competition. We believe this phase is the key stage to any successful web project. It’s crucial to gather as much information as possible here.

 

Designing Mock-up

 

At this point we start wire framing out the relevant content for the site. We figure out which pages and categories will be needed. Plus we need to structure everything to make it quick and easy for the user to find. We put together some very basic wire frames to illustrate how the page will be laid out. These will include, navigation, headline blocks, divided content based on relevance, advertising sections, etc. After the wire frames are finalized we begin sketching out ideas for the actual look and design of the site. The sketches are more for internal use, and help our designers and developers work out logistics before actually beginning with the design phase. This entire phase is pretty quick, as we are just putting together some rough draft ideas, but really helps in speeding up the actual design portion of the project.

 

Visual Design and Revisions

 

Taking the sketches we put together, we begin working on the visual design of your site. We usually put together a couple of versions for internal review before presenting anything to the client. This way we can usually get through most of the back and forth changes from the client and give them something that will hopefully have minimal revisions. There isn’t such a thing as a perfect design on the first try, so once the design is presented to the client we iron out the kinks. We understand that your website is a direct reflection of your company.

 

Data modeling

 

After finalizing the design, we start analysis of the website by breaking into the modules that are required to maintain and update content of the website. In this step we document Entities, Attributes, and Relationships to find out the possible use case work flow and develop a Data Flow Diagram to state how date will flow between website modules.

 

Site Development

 

Each site is built with standard XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). This will help the site run faster, perform better, and be more accessible to a wider range of users. The modules are programmed using a programming language (PHP, ASP.NET, Java etc) and connected to the database with content of the website. Static Pages developed by designers are integrated with dynamic code to prepare the final draft of the website.

 

Just as we’re about the wrap up with the final coding touches, we begin to put the site through a series of usability testing. We put the site in front of a remote group of users and have them accomplish certain tasks. These testing scenarios will help us better adapt the site to a common user and help fix any kinks that might be lingering.

 

Testing and Launch

 

Finally comes the moment we’ve all been anticipating, the launch of the site. There’s something about knowing a site is ready for the public that gets everyone involved in the project excited. Of course very little in life is perfect and your site will probably not be an exception. No matter how much testing takes place before launching a site there is almost always something that you or we will notice that needs correcting. No worries. For a few weeks after the site is taken live we’ll gladly make fixes and minor changes to ensure the site meet your expectations.
