Web design & development process

We generally approach our website design & developments in a few key phases:
  • Website brief - We meet with the decision makers of your business to discuss the requirements for your website in more detail i.e. vision, strategies, goals and objectives; target market; required look and feel; calls to action; rough out navigation/site map, overall layout.
  • Design proof - we create a website design in line with your branding and supply it to you for approval.
  • Integration - We integrate the above design into the CMS (content management system) aka website platform, and activate dynamic menus, site search with thorough 
  • Content - We source and/or upload the content for the website i.e. the images and words
  • Testing & Tweaking - We ensure the site is good to go with full testing and quality checks on different browsers to ensure compliance and functionality
  • Training & handover - We arrange a one-on-one training and handover session to show you the ropes of your new website!

How long does it take to build a website?

Whilst we can provide rough guidelines on how long a site will take to build based on previous experience, the client will generally dictate the speed at which a website is built, depending on how long they take to provide approvals for different stages of the development, and also how long the content takes to collate and supply (which the client generally sources and writes, unless we are contracted otherwise).

The duration of any given website design and development project will also dependent on the size of the project i.e. it's level of customisation and complexity, and also our current production schedule. But be assured that if you have a deadline to make, we can make it happen!
