MY WEB DESIGN PROCESS
Designing a website should be given the utmost care and attention as this is often your customer’s first impression of your Brisbane business. I’ve dealt with many client’s who’ve tried to develop website themselves on platforms such as WIX, Squarespace and other ‘out of the box’ solutions and the end result always seems to be frustration at the level of customisation and SEO friendliness available. I specialise in WordPress development and strongly recommend this platform to all of my clients.
From dealing with many clients across multiple industries, I’ve developed the following strategy for ensuring a smooth web design process that results in a beautiful, SEO friendly website.
Before we talk colour schemes or layouts, I’ll first ask you about your business goals and common customer pain points. This gives me a clear picture of what the main purpose of the website will be and ‘must-have’ features to ensure a smooth customer journey.
The next step in designing a website for a Brisbane business is to produce wire frames showing the basic layout of the website and it’s internal pages. This allows us to come to an agreement for what the basic structure will look like and help me to understand the media components required to bring your website design to life.
FINAL DESIGN DRAFT
Once an agreement has been reached on the layout of the website, I’ll then get to work producing 2 detailed mock-ups to fine tune the design of your website and lock in an agreed aesthetic to ensure you’re happy with the final result.
The development stage typically involves purchasing an existing theme and creating a child theme to create the level of customisation required. This allows you to maintain the latest version of WordPress without breaking your website every time.
Finally, your website will be tested in multiple devices and browsers to ensure that it works perfectly every time.
Once I’ve completed your Brisbane web design project, I’ll then provide you with everything you’ll need to know to update and maintain your site.
