OUR 7 PHASE WEB DESIGN PROCESS

Every website follows our 7 phase development process ensuring that no key step is missed along the way, by the time a website has been launched it would have been reviewed by every member of our team to ensure that it ticks every box.

Analysis

The creation of all good websites starts with an understanding of the clients and their requirements.

Planning

The planning phase involves collating the data gathered to develop the basic blueprint of the website.

Design

This phase starts off with the development of the wireframe models. The visual style is planned out and incorporated to ensure an aesthetically pleasing appearance of the site.

Content

The usefulness of a site greatly depends on the content it provides. As a result, copywriters are brought into the project to develop content for the various pages of the site.

Development

This is the phase in which the site is finally developed with the chosen technologies such as HTML and CSS. Databases and other essentials of the site are created as per requirements.

Testing

Once the site is completed, it undergoes rigorous testing. Apart from technical testing, the site’s compatibility with various browsers is tested so that everyone can access and view the site as intended.

Launch!

Once the site has been tested and errors rectified, it is deployed. Visitors start pouring in. However, the site may still need further work post-deployment. It is monitored for any bugs and issues that affect its usability or experience.
