Our website design process analyzes your project objectives and adds a dash of spontaneous creativity to produce a web design which simplifies usability and enhances your users' experience.
What does that mean to you?
We believe that a design based around what you want to accomplish - such as more engagement or more sales - is more important than just a pretty design that has no engineering behind it.
Creating an effective website design is more than just throwing together images, fonts and catch-phrases. Websites are interactive and each element must have a purpose - as such our designers are experts in designing for the web. Simply put, we deliver web designs that work - all out of our quaint Ottawa offices.
And you are not left feeling alone - throughout the process you will work with a dedicated project manager who will be responsible to make the process as simple as possible for you.
Our design process is very hands-on and includes the following major components:
Consultation: Whether in-person, by phone or via e-mail, the initial step is to determine what the website has to do for you. Typically kept to a higher level this initial step provides us with a good understanding of your objectives.
Needs Analysis: A document which every client must complete, our web design analysis document captures everything from your organizational branding, to your competition and visual preferences. It becomes one of the blueprint items for how the project will proceed.
Website Architecture: Definition of your content organization which will serve as the initial website framework for the design and first build.
Wireframing: Development of black and white wireframes which serve to illustrate where the content will be positioned.
Website design: One of our web designers takes all consultation information, analysis information, website architecture and wireframes and develops a website concept which will meet all of your objectives and satisfy your users' expectations.
Going Mobile, Responsive Web Design: The strongest growing segment of your audience are those using mobile devices. We ensure that your website will meet their expectations and allow them to easily find the most relevant content in an experience tailored for mobile devices.
