What is Website Design?
Briefly, website design involves the planning and creation of a website. This planning process will define the way we structure images, web photography, copy, content, and web graphics in a way that display on various web and mobile devices. This includes user experience design, search engine optimization, information architecture, user interface, site structure, navigation, layout, colors, fonts, and web imagery.
4 Step Web Design Process
1. Discover - We meet with you to discuss your website design goals and outline the website design deliverables that will help you achieve your goals. This discovery process helps define project expectations, deliverables, timelines, and project estimates. During this process we will define the website structure, visual elements, and your development needs. Collecting your website content is extremely important as it will dictate the overall design look and feel. We use a shared folder so you are able to send your website content, logo, and web photography or images. Once we have all of your content we will be able to start designing exactly what you need. The next step is design which is more exciting. See more about preparing and sending your website content below.
2. Design - This design phase is where our web designers incorporate your web content into a visual mock up or wireframe example so you can see what the design will look like. The mockup will help us nail down colors, logo placement, content placement, and basic website structure before the coding and programming starts. It's very important that any edits, or modifications are worked out during this phase as the next step will be where we add the coding.
3. Develop - This is where we take the visual mockup design and code or program it so it can be viewed on web and mobile devices. The web development for your design can be added to a development area for you to review the web development progress.
4. Deploy - The final website design step is to publish your new website for everyone to see on the Internet.
