WORKING PROCESS

“An outline of the steps required to take a web design project from inception to completion and beyond

1.  Planning

Being able to talk to someone regarding your website is crucial and I am always available, whether it be by phone, email or my contact form.

  • Information gathering
  • Questions, questions and more questions
  • Meetings

Please refer to my questionnaire that I like my clients to complete – this will give me plenty of information on which to base the website on

2. Design

This is where the information gathered from stage 1 will be used to either put pen to paper or pixels to screen.  A visual representation will be exchanged between parties.  We continue to work with you to ensure that our proposal meets the requirements of your business.

  • A supply of a .jpg (or similar) file.
  • Design mockups
  • Sitemaps
  • Client side design

3. Development

The point at which the website is created.  All the parts of the design created in stage 2 will be put into use for a functioning site.  It is regularly tested in all browsers.

  • Client side programming
  • html/css/javascript/wordpress
  • Quality assurance testing
  • Inserting client information ie content, photography etc

4. Launch

At this stage you will be 100% satisfied with the website.  Preparation for public viewing will commence.  Files will be uploaded to the chosen server.

  • Link testing
  • W3C validation
  • Cross-browser testing – IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Iphone
  • FTP

5. Post Launch

The true value of the website will be known after launch.  This is when you find out how your website is received.  Also known as the maintenance period.  I work with the clients to update, maintain, support and even possibly build more pages if necessary.  We can closely monitor your website to ensure that you are happy with the final product, and we have met all goals.

  • Support and maintenance
  • SEO integration
  • Completion
  • Learn from experience
