Web Design And Build: Our 6 step process
Crowd will meet with you to discuss the project requirements, the user, and your business needs. These needs could include social media integration, or the use of third party systems. This is then followed by a design and content assessment including brand USPs, logo’s, themes and web content. Depending on budget and scope, A competitor analysis or user testing may also be performed. A detailed specification document will then outline the deliverables and make any updates to our proposal.
This part of the process starts with the UX (user experience). We will outline the structure and site map of the website. This is a stripped back view of how the site will function, illustrated with wireframes or a visual guide to outline the best approach. All website designs will be dynamic and responsive across all devices.
Once the structure of the site has been agreed we will begin to design the visual look and feel, based on approved brand guidelines. As well as being visually appealing, the designs will also be used as a tool to help the user navigate the website.
At this stage we begin to build the front-end templates followed by the back-end functionality. Crowd will also start to add content into the design, and ensure reporting is integrated into the build of the website.
With all the key components now active on the site, fine tuning and testing can begin. Once we are fully confident, and all checks carried out, we will provide you with full training on the functions, navigation and features of the website.
Our service doesn’t stop once the website is delivered. Instead we take care of any of the service contracts, including regular maintenance, auditing, advice, and on-going assistance. This is a 6 step process to deliver you peace of mind, as well as a website.
