Our Design Process
Step 1: Gather
At first, it’s important to get a clear understanding on what the clients requirements are and the purpose and goals of the website.
A well described and detailed plan made on the basis of this ‘gathering of information’ is essential so we can focus on capturing your online vision.
Step 2: Plan
Using the information gathered from the client, we offer various solutions and options to choose from based on cost and featureset.
Usually this is when an estimate is given to the client based on what options are selected.
Step 3: Design
Once the client has approved the estimate, the work begins. All the information gathered in the first steps are used during the design which contains site colours, logos, images and content.
Any custom options are also designed and prepared for the development stage.
Step 4: Develop
During this stage, the website starts to take shape. Development begins and the code is created to style and structure the output of your website.
The client can then login and review the development of the website and send us feedback so we can make any alterations.
Step 5: Test
After the client is happy with development stage, thorough site testing begins. This includes things such as:
- Link Checking
- Mobile Compatability
- Testing Form Submissions
- Spell Checking
- SEO Optimsation
- Code Validation
Step 6: Deliver
The site is now ready to be published to the world and various configuration changes are made for this to happen.
A final check through the site is done to make sure everything is working correctly.
Step 7: Maintain
It's important to know a website is more a 'service' than a product. If bundled with our hosting, the following is offered over the hosting period:
- CMS Updates
- CMS Plugin Updates
- SEO Enhancemnts (JC-WED-2000 plan and above*)
- Scheduled Backups
- Hosting Upgrades
- Security Checks
