First off we’ll get to know you and your project. This is one of the most important phases for us as it sets the tone for the rest of the web design process. At this point we aim to simply discern what you’re all about and how your new website needs to work to help you reach your aims. We’ll listen to your ideas, suggest a few ideas of our own and package together the foundations of a solid website.
Once we’ve covered what your site needs to do, we’ll move straight on to the design. Many people start with the design first, but we believe that the secret to providing quality web design services is building the design around the functionality, rather than the other way round. We’ll take a look at what you like the idea of, discuss how that works in line with the desired functionality and settle on a basic design draft with you. If you don’t know what your site should look like, we’ll happily take you through a variety of options from pre-designed templates to custom web design services.
Once that’s all agreed upon, we’ll give you a quote for the project. We always wait to agree the details of a project before firing off a price at the client. We believe in fair pricing for all of our clients and therefore each web design project is priced on its own merit rather than as pat of a broad pricing scheme. This way we can be sure that we’re not over-charging anyone, but also able to provide the full required amount of work and resources to make the project a success. We’ll agree a price and a payment plan with a view to starting work as soon as possible.
Once that’s all out of the way, we’ll get on with the fun stuff and go away and start working on the initial design based on what we agreed. Once we’ve created something that you love the look of, we’ll move on to the next step…
Now for the meat on the bones of our web design services. We’ll place your content within the design. If you don’t have content already written, we offer a copy writing service to help you out. If your site has any additional functionality, it’s at this point that we implement this and test it rigorously to make sure that it will work under live conditions.
Your site is completed and ready to go and be deployed. We’ll sign it over and provide free support for the first 30 days of deployment, just to make sure it’s all working okay and to give you peace of mind during the early stages of your new site. It’s at this point that we may offer you other aftercare services and online marketing services but you’re under no obligation, it’s just a bonus as a thank you for being awesome and working with us.
