Overview

Design Process

The process begins with a consultation to discuss your requirements. The basic information includes who you are, your background and how you can be contacted. However, you may be a writer wishing to convey lots of information, or wishing to promote your services e.g. plumber, electrician, club, society or sports team. Additional information can be displayed such as call out times, rates, registered qualifications and photographs to illustrate your service. Company or Club logos can also be incorporated into the design of your website. Time spent within the consultation will determine all of the elements you require and how the navigation of your site will run.

Your ideas and opinions are crucial in the development of your website.

Please view all the service elements of this website as they will answer many questions and more than likely make you think what you might like to include in your website. If you have a corporate image and colour way great we can use that as a bases for colour schemes. If you have not got a scheme then let us help you.

This web site does contains some technical jargon for those of you that may have some coding knowledge but is mainly designed to show you what we can do with example. Please view some of our project examples they are as diverse as they come so you should feel comfortable with type of sites we write.

This website is written in HTML5 and is a responsive website that means it will resize and change to suit the medium you are viewing it in i.e. Personnel Computer, tablet or smart phone.


Why not get started by downloading our creative design brief. It will help you think about want you are looking for. It will also help us with a basic understanding of your business and help us plan a new website for you. PDF or MS Word format.


Defining Your Requirements

First we need some basic information from you. To help the process we have created a ‘Creative Design Brief’ that will both help you think about what you want from a website and also help us from a creative stand point. The ‘Creative Design Brief’ can be downloaded from this page. Please see above.

Project Delivery Plan

From the information you supply we plan out a website. The navigation between pages and layout and layout function. This may include image carousals, mail forms and any other form of functionality.

Before a template is built this structure will be discussed with you so you can see how the site would function. Your input is essential as we like to make sure you are happy with the concept.

Design and Layout

The next stage is a designed template. This will give you the feel of a working site. At this stage we may use blank images and Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit Amet Copyfitting Text. This helps us see how the site will appear with images and text and gives you time to refine what you want to feature on the pages. It also allow you to see the colour layout, font height and weight sizes.

At this stage we will require, if you haven’t already provided, any images, logo and text for the website.

Server

The Last stage is to fully load your new site to your server that is if you are not using ours. The site is then fully tested to make sure that all links work both internally and externally. Images are present and mail forms work.

Once the site is up and running we then create a coded site map for search engines and submit this to google to index your site. We also use free web submission tools to submit your new site to main search engines and many more.
